Crochet twine flowers and things!!

Hey guys!!

So I want to just share something cool I came across today. I went to Etsy looking for some crochet flowers to purchase....but instead I made some!!

I didn't want the fluffy bright colors, I wanted to see about some rustic...maybe grungy, or "rough" looking flowers, but I couldn't find any, so I looked around my room and noticed my jute twine and thought..."Shoot, why not!" I grabbed my jute twine to give it a try and needless to say, I loved it!!

I followed a tutorial here to make them. I played a little and made some different shapes! Take a look and let me know what you think!!

Oh, you know what else?...I glimmer misted one and it took the glimmer mist really well, topped it with a mini Prima rosette and I love it!! 


I later used hemp cord.....a little stiff, but I made them! I really love these!!


I wanted to see what else I could use...I tried strips of fabric! This is my muslin that I tea stained!! A little difficult to control, but I made it...I guess I got all excited about learning how to make flowers that I was grabbing anything I could at this point!! hmmm...my kids do that....I guess that's ok! :)



Try them, they are really easy to make....and fun!!!

Here is my video introducing mine. For bloggers who aren't youtubers:)
Thanks for peeking, xo, Jules:)
