DIY Wooden Twine Holder

Twine.  I’m not sure what it is about twine that makes my heart go pitter patter, but it does!  I use it in my home, in my crafts, in my shop and for packaging.  I adore the rustic, rough, imperfection that it adds to whatever the project might be!  Remember my DIY Twine Holder that I made using an airtight container by drilling into the lid?  That is still put to good use in my craft room; however, I had yet another idea for one that doesn’t hide the twine.! I am in love!
Let’s take a look at my DIY Wooden Twine Holder

Let’s grab a few supplies for the twine holder:
Round Wood Plaque 5″ x 5″
Wood Finial (15/16″ x 2-7/8″ ; 3/8 Tennon)
Wooden Candlestick (2-15/16″ x 1-3/8″ ; 1/2″ hole)
Elmer’s Wood Glue
Drill with Counter Sink Bit (optional)
Flat Head Screw (optional)

Here you can see the three main components of this project.

Step One:
Glue the finial into the candlestick using your wood glue.

Step Three:
Paint or stain.  You could also  give it an aged look by sanding and rubbing on some brown paint/stain. It adds that vintage look, which is something I love.  You could also keep the wood raw by not painting or staining.

Here you can see it with and without the twine side by side.
