{twine frame}

I seem to have this never-ending supply of frames that I don’t love, don’t use, and are just sitting in my craft closet. This one in particular I didn’t know what to do with, because I couldn’t just cover it with spray paint. It was this kind of leather material, that was falling apart, and it was looking like there was no hope.

Then…I remembered the twine. How I love that stuff! You might look at this frame, and wonder how long it actually took me to cover it, but surprisingly, it only took about 10 minutes.

I adore how it turned out, and with a darling flower as an embellishment, it is the perfect thing for the table in my music room.


  • old frame
  • twine (jute) –I used a little less than half a spool on a 5×7 frame.
  • flower
  • hot glue


  • Leaving your twine on the spool, take one end, loop it around a corner of the your frame, and tie a tight knot on the back side, leaving a long piece on the end. (this will come in handy later)
  • Continue to wind the twine around and around the frame, (you have to pass the spool through each time), pulling it tight each time.
  • To do the corners, try this: Wrap the twine until you get to the edge of the corner, then skipping the corner, wrap the other edge of that same corner. Then continue to do the corner itself. I know–that probably sounds confusing, so hopefully the picture will help. Also–please ignore the fuzzy picture, I’m sorry! I didn’t realize it was fuzzy until I was all finished!
  • Once you have wrapped the whole frame, and you are back to where you started, take the end of your twine, and tie it to the long piece you left in the first knot you tied. This should be on the back side, and will keep your twine in place.
  • Hot glue your flower in place, and you’re ready to display!
