Put a Cork on the Twine Storage Problem

Recently, Katie from Addicted to DIY was staring at a little bag of wine corks a friend had passed along to her.  As she wondered what to do with those corks, she spotted a small tangle of baker’s twine nearby.  “Then it hit me!”  Katie exclaimed.  “Why not use the corks to keep my twine from turning into a big knot?”

Although she’d been meaning to buy some spools for storing her twine, Katie had been putting off the purchase.  The wine corks, she realized, were just the right substitution for spools.  She wrapped twine around the corks, cutting a small slit in the top of each one to secure the end of the twine.  Super simple and effective!

  1. Thank you for sharing these, Beckie! Have a wonderful rest of your weekend!

  2. Cute idea! I’d throw all those pretty twine corks into a glass canister to contain and display them. What did you do with them Katie?
