Paper Twine Spring Home Decor - Paperilla

Karin Eisele of Germany is an absolute whiz when it comes to making beautiful decorations from paper twine and paper yarn. Unfurling and manipulating the twisted paper results in an impressive array of possibilities.

Paper Twine Fantasy Flower

I came across Karin's blog Paperilla [edit: now set to private]and found myself scrolling all the way to the beginning. A bit like being in a candy shop, there were so many projects I wanted to share, but have limited my choices to springtime creations (for now!)

Paper Twine Butterflies

Karin told me she's enjoyed working with paper yarn for the past ten years and has used it to create many different types of flowers, garlands, and seasonal decorations.

She teaches classes and writes project instructions. Karin's shop on DaWanda, Starpoint, ships Finnish paper twine supplies, kits, and how-to manuals throughout Germany.

Paper Yarn Rabbits Centerpiece

Her book of various paper yarn projects is titled Kunterbuntes aus Papiergarn. It features fourteen seasonal designs.

Paper Yarn Daffodil String Lights

I never would have thought plain, twisted paper could result in a display of handsome Easter rabbits or this gorgeous daffodil garland!

  1. What a coincidence. Yesterday I saw a sunflower in one of the shops in Minneapolis during my visit there and was wondering how do they twist tissue paper to get this effect. Didn't know about paper twine. Thanks Ann for this lovely post. Awesome creations.

    1. Yes, go to http://translate.google.com/. Paste the blog address in the box on the left and choose the language to be translated if you recognize it. If not, click on the language detector button. The translated blog will appear when you click the link in the box on the right.

      However, I just heard from Karin that she has added a translator button on her blog, so you can also do it that way.
