Magnetic Fishing Game with Trendy Twine

Hey Crafty Friends-

It's a new month and a new featured Trendy Twine color! September is all about Chocolate Sprinkles.
This blue and brown twine just screamed out little boy to me and I knew right a away a Magnetic Fishing Game was the perfect project.

The pole was made from painting a pencil brown, screwing in four small eyes and stringing the twine through. I dipped the end of the pencil in glue and wrapped it several times. Finally, the end of the twine was glued between two magnets.

The bucket was layered with coordinating paper that has been punched with a scalloped border and embellished with a little twine and stickles. Brown polka dot ribbon was used to wrap the handle.

The fish were cut at 2 inches from the Create a Critter Cricut cartridge and the edges were inked in Tim Holtz Faded Jeans Distress Ink on the blue parts of the fish and Gathered Twigs on the brown parts. They were layered together and google eyes and Stickles were added. Each fish is doubled sided which was done using the flip feature on the Cricut. A paper clip was placed inside each fish so it could be "caught" on the pole!

Well, there you have it. Another great project idea using the best twine around! I hope you try making this one yourself.
