Twist Tie Art

In case you got involved in a garbage/trash bag craft, you may find yourself stuck with a lot of unused twist ties which come with these bags.

I know that the temptation to throw them away is great, but I would advice you not to; those twist ties are excellent and very cheap material for creating more art.

Twist tie art is a fun way to express your creativity, since they are highly and easily bendable and can be twisted in pretty much any way, shape, or form.

Figurines are one of the many projects which can be made out of twist ties and they don't have to be small either. By twisting several twist ties together, you can create them as large as you like.

Twisting them together also opens up the possibility for knitting or crocheting. I came across this pot cover which is knitted entirely from twist ties. It may not be an easy task to do, but the results are quite stunning.

Other works of art I came across were cars, dragons and several other, different animals, but I have a hunch there are many more projects for which twist ties can be used.

Take some time to think about it and it will come to you, but there is no need to get all tied up in knots over it!
