Jute Go Round Spool - Knock Off

Jute Love Again!
 
My last post was about rope and texture.
 
I must be on a roll.
 
Puttin' it on a spool today.
 
 
 
 
Pin It!
 
I wanted one of these at Decor Steals.
 
 
 
So cute, right?
 
I have all of the scrap wood
 
so I decided to make one!
 
 
 
I cut my circle base 5 1/4" diamenter.
 
I cut my 1/2" dowel 5 1/4".
 
Drill a hole in the base with a spade bit.
 
 
 
Wood glue and fill to secure all pieces.
 
Base with a wash of Burnt Umber and water.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Rub on Black Wax.
 
If you don't have wax, just make a black wash.
 
 
 
 
I added some more black paint in random places.
 
 
 
 
Then wiped off a little bit so it looks worn.
 
 
 
 
Spray with Gloss Sealer.
 
That will really add depth of color.
 
 
 
 
Tie on and start your wrap around!
 
 
 
 
20 minutes later, you have this!
 
 
 
 
Now that's a storage solution
 
that doubles as nice design.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Pin It!
 
 
I'm loving the rustic style
 
that was little or no cost
 
and about one hour to make!
 
Hope you enjoy it too,
 
Deb

Lake Girl, great minds must certainly think alike! Making one of my own was the first thing I thought of when I saw the deal too!

Oh. So. Cute! Thanks for sharing how you made this wonderful twine holder. Even if a person doesn't have many wood working tools (like me) most of these items could be purchased in the wood section of a craft store don't you think? Great tips on getting a time-worn look on wood. I saw your post over at Stone Gable blog party.

This is such a great idea and adorable! I think I will be adding this to my project this, though I might try to figure out if there is a way to make part of it rotate so it is easier to unwrap the twine off during a project.

Deb Hrabik said...

What a great idea Maggie!

Joselyn @ The DIY Spot said...

Wow!!!! That's and exact match! So adorable. I am going to make one too.

Allison said...

Great idea, Maggie. I like the addition of black paint - really gives it some age.
I hope you'll drop by to see My Daughter's Master Bath Redo - #83 at Met Monday.
