Project

Soft Handles

Materials

  • twine (2mm-wide)
  • permanent adhesive

Steps

  1. Step 1

    1. Coat the top inch of the handle with permanent adhesive, then adhere a 1/2-inch end of twine vertically to the handle (if using two colors, place them side by side).

  2. Step 2

    2. Wind twine back over the 1/2-inch anchor. Continue, gluing and wrapping in 1-inch increments.

  3. Step 3

    3. If the bottom of the handle has a hole, dab glue in it to secure final 1/2 inch of twine. Otherwise, just glue down the end of the twine.
