Tie A string around my Finger

Almost forgot it was "Trash to treasure Tuesday" Give me a few weeks of an I will forget the routine! This week I solved two longtime problems in my house- How to keep my garden twine around without it getting tangled and twisted; and What to do with those phony nut cans and coffee cans (from Trader Joe's) The answer- A Twine Holder:


I took an ordinary empty nut can
Cut a hole in the lid, with a slit in the hole

I considered wrapping it in gift wrap for more of a design, but went simple and just peeled off the label, and use a sharpie to write "Twine". The slit in the hole of the lid is to lock the twine in place for easy access to it
