Tied with rope and twine ...

I have an odd affinity for twine (and its big brother rope). It's one of my favorite materials to use when creating handcrafted projects.

Curtains tied with twine via Alamodeus.

When I wanted a novel look for my studio curtains, I tied hemp and cheesecloth together with twine for simple, rustic appeal.

Twine works beautifully with just about any other object to add interest for curtain tiebacks.

With heavier twine, I created custom candle holders that are frequently used when entertaining. My previous post here gives the tutorial.

It's fun to see so many event designers using twine for impromptu napkin rings. I love the clever addition of trinkets, notes and placeholders, too.

Guest favors gain a homespun character with string and twine embellishments.

And, yesterday I found this great rope necklace in a favorite consignment shop. Who could resist its chunky charm? Not me. It's mine now!
