For a while I had been seeing these little gourds at the Dollar Tree. I would put them in my basket and at the last second I would take them out before check out because I wasn’t sure what to do with them. Finally, I just went ahead and bought them! It was only a dollar and for that price I knew I could come up with something! Of course my go-to way of decorating is twine! Twine is the perfect way to hide something that is ugly or shouldn’t normally be displayed – such as these Twine Wrapped Tin Cans.
These Twine Gourds could be used in so many ways, such as décor for a fall or thanksgiving party or they could be used as place cards at a table!
What you’ll need:
Little Gourds – plastic or styrofoam
Hot glue gun with glue
First, take the end of the twine and place it on a dab of hot glue at the base or the top of the gourd.Wrap the twine around the gourd, using the hot glue gun as needed.
I usually add some hot glue, wrap a few times, add some more hot glue, and wrap more, continuing this process until I have completed the gourd. Once the gourd is completely covered in twine use the scissors to cut off the excess twine and glue the end down.
For a few of the gourds I started at the base, but I decided that some of them – due to their shape – looked better if I started at the top. In the picture above the gourd on the left was started at the top and the gourd on the right was started at the bottom.
