Hello all, today’s DIY features another one with jute/twine weaving. I was meaning to change my entry rug to more of my style natural materials with neutral shades.

This is the ball of braided twine. I actually ended up making 2 balls of this size. Braid as you go. Next step is to glue it with your glue gun. I use this glue gun and these glue sticks from Amazon, click the link to buy the same.

Next is to paint the words over these, using masking tape I started painting the letters. I decided to write ‘COME ON IN’.
