Twine Turned Treasure Container
One of my holiday gifts was a tin container of Ikea cookies. Cookies were quickly consumed but you can never have enough tins for storing things. However, I believe they deserve a facelift for their storage role.
Here’s the cookie tin ready for its transformation. Did someone say twine?
Located my roll of twine and hot glue gun. Over the weekend, I replaced my cedar rings that I use in my closets with new ones. The old ones were perfect for the artsy component of my project.
A dab of hot glue was placed on the back of a cedar ring and then with a paper clip, I threaded the twine around the ring.
Twine was wrapped until it covered most of the ring.
I decided that 2 patterns on the cedar rings would make it more interesting. A dab of glue and then wrapped it in a circular pattern adding more glue along the way.
Now it was the tin’s turn to be wrapped in twine. Once again, a dab of hot glue and twine wrapped around the bottom of tin.
An old piece of surplus contact paper was cut to cover the top and twine wrapped around the rim of the top.
I placed the twined cedar rings in a pattern on the lid top and hot glued them in place.
Off to my spare finial / knob box for embellishment pieces for flower centers which were hot glued into place.
With everything in place & glued on the top, the artsy effect makes it perfect for visual storage.
Project completed. Now I just have to decide what treasures will get a new home. I’m leaning toward a sewing or button box but it might house bracelets or hair accessories.
