Twine Ornaments

I bought a roll of twine for another purpose and had a bunch left over.  So I got to thinking of other ways to use this twine of mine.  Since I'm going for a more nature inspired look next year, here's one idea I came up with.

1. I started with a tube of silver ball ornaments from the Target dollar spot.  You can't beat 8 for $1.00.

2. Next came the twine and craft glue.

3. I added glue to the top and just started wrapping the twine around one section at a time.

4. It looked like this and yes, this is a sticky project.

5. Here is the finished product, although the glue was obviously still drying.

6. Here are the rest I was able to do while my girls were working on......

 7......these. Stickers + Sharpies + cheap ball ornaments = fun for all.

Here is the final look. I think lots of these and other "natural" elements on my tree next year will be just what I'm looking for. 

Do you have a theme for your tree? If so, what is it?
