How To Add Texture To A Room For $2

Texture is the most overlooked element when it comes to decor, yet makes a huge impact.

The other night, I picked up some jute twine for $2.

I had 2 empty wine bottles, so I figured I’d snazzify them.

The cork is inside this one.  Hear about that crazy event here.

I grabbed a few glue sticks and my hot glue gun, then went to work.

I put a few lines of glue about an inch long starting from the bottom of the bottle.

I just worked my way up.

I was so excited about this one (plus I’m OCD about creating balance) that I obviously needed to make another one 😛

Some may say that I have a tendency to go overboard.  I think I just know I good idea when it hits me, so I say go with it 😉   I raided our cabinets, and pulled out a glass mousse cup.

Of course, I had to mummify that in glue and jute also.  And maybe even stick a pillar candle in it for kicks.

Bathrooms need texture too!

There ya have it folks, you can whip up a cute decorative piece (or three)  for under $2.  Easy peasy.
