My Twinery tree




I had made an angel out of a Styrofoam cone many years ago. It fell apart last year and I was going to throw away the cone but had seen a nifty button tree in a magazine and thought I would give it a go. Ok, got distracted and ended up with no buttons on the tree but did end up with a twine encased tree intstead. And Henry likes it!! All twine from the Twinery, (of course). I love the patterns the twine makes on the tree and on the base as well..
I really like the simplicity of it, very easy to pull together. I have used an old cotton spool as the base with a wooden skewer (and some appropriately placed blu tack) to hold the tree up. Here's the full image. Hope you like it...


Have a great weekend. xx
