Jute Twine Monogram

Hi all! We had so much fun exploring all of your wonderful Rust-oleum Revamps! If you didn’t get a chance to check out all of the fun projects linked up you can scroll down a little to explore! So, moving on…I’d like to share with you all my Jute Twine Mongoram. I just love jute twine on basically everything right now and monograms are so fun so this project was a winner with me from the beginning!
It was so easy!
I started with a card board letter that I purchased from Jo-Anns for about $4.  (We always use coupons or buy sale only items to save money!)
I then used my hot glue gun and a roll of 4ply jute twine and wrapped twine all the way up and around the letter!  Make sure to glue every wrap and side for a more finished clean look!
Believe it or not that’s it!!!  Now, I will say this is more time consuming than I had initially thought but the time spent was well worth it!
I love the texture!
I’ve moved it around a bit but I think I like it best propped next to my basket of dried hydrangeas!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you all have a great weekend!

    Great idea! And, yes, sales and coupons are the ONLY way to go!

    I actually did this not too long ago and got the idea from all the jute twine you were using on all your other projects. It is definitely time consuming, but well worth it. Love it!

    The twine and the little touch of beautifulness of the hydrangeas is beautiful together..

    Love that Monogram. Hmm, what else could be cool with jute wrapped around it?

    That turned out great and the way you blended it with some soft textures. Just great.

    I love it! I'm all about monograms, but unfortunately, we have 2 different last names in our household, so it's a little weird to do.

  19. Holly on December 10, 2009 at 1:37 am

    Oooh, I like that!

    Will keep my eyes peeled for some letters!
