This is definitely the work of someone who is very skilled (and has a lot of different colours of baling twine). Definitely a show-piece of twine mastery to work your way up to.

2. Shoelaces. Baling twine shoelaces

The simplest and easiest way to make use of baling twine. Just thread it through your shoes and you’re ready to go.

Great for fixing up a broken set of laces.

3. A halter.

This is certainly one to be careful of – the twine could be too rough against your horses skin. But if you’re in emergency need of a halter and all you have is baling twine – this is a solution.

This one requires a bit of braiding and weaving skill, but it makes a very professional-looking lead that can be quite useful.

Definitely worth experimenting with this idea.

6. Shoes. Shoes made from baling twine

Complete honesty: these are not the most attractive shoes I have seen in my entire like.

But if you found yourself bare-footed in a barn with twine and hours to spare, they might be exactly what you need.

7. A woven chair. Baling twine use on a chair

Chairs are often woven from wicker or straw – why not do the same with baling twine? This simple pattern looks neat, tidy, and isn’t too difficult.
