Designing with Twine!

So, mankind went through the Copper Age, the Bronze Age, and the Iron Age. A couple years ago, I went through a Twine Age. Below are a few of my twine creations. Twines of choice were sisal and jute, both of which I tinted with dark walnut wood stain. Rolls of jute and sisal are less than $5 each at Home Depot or Lowes.
Cardboard wrapped in jute and sisal twine to make the outer vase for a tall glass vase. 
Love the textures!

Alternating jute and sisal-covered wood pieces (.25" thick, 6.5" square, painted a black matte.)
