5 Ways To Use Twine Rope To Give Your Space A Facelift

From covering up unsightly wires to creating esthetically pleasing accent pieces around your home, twine is the perfect natural fibre material for your conscious lifestyle home. 

The DUFMOD style is ‘raw beauty with an expression of wildness and freedom‘.  An open, tranquil space full of natural materials and your unique, statement pieces. Twine is budget friendly, versatile, and creates beautiful textures due to the nature of the natural material. So using twine, a strong, twisted thread composed of natural fibres such as cotton, sisal, jute, hemp, henequen, and coir, just makes sense. 

Here are 5 ways we love to see twine being used to give your space a facelift and add natural textures to the interior of your home. Remember a glue gun and your imagination are your best friends for these projects.

Cover Ugly Wires

For those of us who do not have everything-bluetooth, wires running along the walls, bunched up in corners and simply existing in sections of your home is an eye-sore. Twine to the rescue if you want to turn them into accent pieces instead. Nicole from THE VOW provides a detailed DIY tutorial on this fun project. FIND OUT HOW

 Creating An Exotic Lighting Atmosphere

Exotic locations like Morroco, Bali, Hawaii, Thailand, just to name a few exudes a free-spirited vibe that is addictive and esthetically refreshing. Create that atomosphere without breaking the bank by repurposing an old lamp shade, lantern or basket for the lights in your space. Ashley from

   Enhance Your Floors With A Rope Rug

If you are just not willing to spend hundreds of dollars on a jute rug and they all seem to look the same to you, this project can be very satisfying for you and your floors. You can create a rug whose size and shape is to your own liking made with the natural fiber and textures you love.  You can purchase a tarp or sheets of canvas fabric. They make a great base for glueing and weaving the twine and easy for cleaning maintanence. Use the tutorial on how to make rope placemats and adjust it for a larger surface.  Remember to do both sides of the tarp and canvas. Make as many of tablemats in various sizes. Assemble all the pieces on the surface you wish to cover before attaching them all together to form your creative designed jute rug via glue gun.
