Twine is a perfect embellishment for fall colors. I will have to see what I can come up with today.

The black Twine is threaded through to look like corset stitching - i wish I had used a smaller hole to thread through - oh well, next time:

If only it was that easy

I know this twine user (ME!) isn't doing something unique with twine, because using it is totally new to me.....lol I've only used it to tie buttons, so I thought I'd try making a card with what I call "cat's whiskers".......lol Don't you remember making this with a friend in elementary school with your hands and a big piece of yarn?

Anyhoo...........Here's my card: It's Autumn Twine

This was a challenging one for me. Not a lot of twine, so I used kitchen twine. Hope that's ok.

I usually just wrap twine around a colored image, so I thought I'd layer it on top of ribbon for a change!

Default Fall Inspiration

I did use the twine but I'm afraid it wasn't anything too innovative. I do think it it goes well with these fall colors.

I don't think my faux barn board turned out quite like it should, but I certainly used twine like I've never used it before:
