You won’t believe how frugal these craft projects can be. Use a roll (or two) of dollar store twine to make these twine crafts and DIY decor projects.
I’m always on the lookout for frugal ways to add rustic touches to my home. Twine is one inexpensive material that has a TON of creative uses.
A lot of twine crafts are also upcycled projects that can help you lower your carbon footprint and go green with your crafting. In many cases, you can use jute or hemp cord instead of twine but it’s usually cheap and pretty easy to find. I buy all of my twine at the Dollar Tree.
Most of these projects are really simple to make – so feel free to try out more than one.
