10 meter paper yarn

i must be crazy...lol...but coiling the paper made me looking for something easier and quicker.....like making paper yarn.it is an "ancient" method i knew already form my childhood when we actually coiled the corn shuck leaves into many shapes -must say much easier than doing it with my beloved paper-so if i calculated well i made up about 10 meter paper yarn.i did not made into a ball but as you see little circles were born and these are the "bodies" of my future necklaces and earrings (and fun ******* yet a secret,lol)
the technique is different form coiling the paper you don't need the straw like paper shapes you just tear the paper in stripes and twist it carefully not to tear it .it is hard to describe the steps it would be better a video show but no time for that.meanwhile you may found a good tutorial on youtube or blogs ...so as i am very familiar twisting the corn leaves into yarn it was my pleasure seeing the recycled paper yarn grow,hehe...you need a bit of practice for a smooth and equable yarn but it is not impossible :)

everything upcycled on this necklace but the mauve leather cord ;) i bought that.except the cord everything is rolled yarned twisted newspaper and ......sawdust!.more will come but first i want to strengthen with a glue mixture the obtained yarn circle.it is not as sturdy as the straw-coiled circles.

also finished this little house which stood enough under the bed and luckily was found a week ago!
bie bie see you next with 100 meter of paper yarn looooooooooooool
