I am in the process of turning an old buffet into a potting bench. I wanted to create a few “accessories” to go on it. For some reason, I can’t keep up with my garden twine. Over the summer I have bought at least three rolls. It was time to find a place for it. If you read my blog, you know I love to repurpose my flea market finds, so I headed to my “junk stash” to find a suitable container. A vintage tin was the perfect choice for my garden twine holder.
First, I drilled a hole in the top
and glued a washer on top with E6000 glue to just give it a smooth opening. It’s not necessary if you don’t have a washer or the glue. E6000 glue will adhere to metal.
Drop the twine in and bring the end up through the hole.
There you have it! A vintage tin garden twine holder that you can easily find. No more lost garden twine. Maybe I should tie a pair of scissors to it!
