On our way home from Sunriver last week, we stopped in a quaint town here in the Northwest; Sisters, Oregon. You can check it out here. There are lots of great shops in town and I found these goodies at one of the antique stores.
The tag on them said 'insulator'.
When I purchased them I asked the gentleman at the counter how they were used.
He explained that they were used to wrap power line cord.
I found this picture on google.
This is what they look like turned over.
I found this idea below at Donation 2 Decor.
I might be inspired to try this on our new trellis next summer.
Summer, that's just 5 months away, right?
