DIY Raffia and Twine Bowls for Decorations 9

I got really inspired when I saw Courtney from A Little Craft In Your Day post about Alene’s Tacky Glue and the new look bottle – it reminded me of a favorite thing we used to do when we were kids with my mom….so I thought – why not make something similar but to fit my decor for the Thanksgiving and the Christmas Season – actually these bowls can be used year around with my everyday decor – pretty easily!  They’re fun, pretty easy and you can really play with the shape and look!  All you need is some natural twine, ribbon, raffia, a plastic shape and Tacky Glue!  I also used some Glue Arts adhesive squares to make life easier in starting it out 😉

Check it out:



So I’m always curious when I post videos of things I did as a kid – who has done it or seen it before?  Will you tell me about it??? Did it bring back a thought or memory for you, or is this an all new craft concept for you?  Give it a try and share your thoughts below or always on social media by tagging me @byMeganE or #EnjoytheMoments #ByMeganE


Enjoy the Moments!


PS – 12 days of Christmas is coming – there are a FEW things you might want to have on hand for yourself as we start making crafts!  🙂

Like perhaps the new Artfully Sent Christmas Cartridge!  This November there are special prizes going out to those who order exclusively from 😉 Lets have some fun, and as always – thank YOU for being a part of the support!!  I adore you and pray for YOU everyday!

    Never made bowls this way but it looks like fun! I would love the new CTMH cricut cartridge! I need to make over 70 Christmas cards for volunteers and haven’t even started yet; last year I told myself that I will start this project late summer/early fall…now we are less than a month from their party and I haven’t started again! I would love to see some quick, simple but special Christmas cards!

    I love the video. I’ve been looking for something simple but very hands on for my 3 great-nieces to make for Christmas crafts. We have a family tradition that we do each year. The children make a craft for each of the adults as Christmas gifts. It’s been going on for years and each year it’s so awesome to see those homemade crafts on our trees or shelves for everyone to see. We are doing this craft this year. I love what you do and enjoy all the videos. God Bless you!! Jackie from Houston.

    Love the bowls! Never thought of bowls. I have made the large Easter eggs with balloons and yarn, as well as the small eggs with my kids when I home schooled them. They are so much fun and it’s always exciting to see the results. Great idea to make bowls……my mind is swimming with ideas now! Fun stuff to do with the Grandkids.
