Divine Bakers Twine Tree Trimming

November 22nd, 2010 § 4 comments § permalink

Jan Ely strikes again! Check out this miniature bottle brush tree she decorated with Divine Twine candy canes and popcorn garland. It makes me smile each time I look at it. The “how-to” is after the photos.

Here’s how she made the candy canes;
Supplies:
Cherry Divine Twine
White Glue
Wax Paper
Skewer or tiny dowel

Cut the twine in 1″ pieces. Coat with white glue. Lay on wax paper. Using the blunt end of the skewer bend one end of the piece in a u-turn shape to create the top of the candy cane. Let dry 10 minutes or so. Place skewer across two cups/cans/jars to create a horizontal pole. Hang the candy canes from the skewer to dry. The candy canes are pliable at this point and you may want to tweak the shape a bit if needed before they totally dry. After they are completely dry (about an hour), trim the frayed ends with scissors.

Popcorn Garland
Supplies:
Lemon Divine Twine

Working off the twine spool, tie a knot every 1/8″ – 1/4″ until you have the length you want. This is one of those projects that is perfect to do while watching TV or a movie.

The extra talented illustrator Mariah De Marco used Lemon Divine Twine for her son’s birthday celebration. She created these fantastic invitations that were hand delivered + a fun goody box.

She also created a twisty toy for the kids to play with.

Mariah is so generous she’s offering a fun bunny twisty toy download on her blog. I printed out a sheet and made one. There is a different image on each side of the toy and when you twist the twine, magic happens. Good times, good times. Click HERE to get the download and instructions.

Thanks for sharing, Mariah!

I sent a little package to a friend. I used a white sandwich bag with some Lemon and Oyster Divine Twine and my mad calligraphy skills (ha!) on  a couple of hang tags.
