WeedWhacking Cord....Cheap and interesting matieral

Post by SyNNy+SuKKupyre » Sun Jun 14, 2009 9:41 pm

So I was in the dollar store the other day with my mom and I saw electric green wire that you put in your weed whacker and well for a dollar I said why not.
I love green :mrgreen:
I used the IKickShins curling plastic method and thus far it has held its ringlet shape.
Just thought I would post this and try to inspire others to think out of the box ;)
I am all about thrifty fall making supplies ^^

Oh man, when I was at Super Cheap Auto (licking those rivets!), my friend and I came across weed whacker cord... It was the stiffed stuff ever.

Yours must've been the real cheapie kind if you can get it to mould like that!

Man, where can I find this stuff that cheap? I checked it out at the local hardware store and I'd be better off buying rexlace ten times over.

It's not cheap where I'm from. But than again, you usually cant buy it in anything less than a giant spool of the stuff, which is 30$+

Really :i6:
I find smaller packs in the dollar store and more colors and such in the hardware store, hardware store of course being more expensive but nothing near that.

Oh a side note am still to put those in anything and should go look for that bag of spirals and see how they are holding up <_<

Yes, which sucks, because at the hardware stores, they have so many interesting colours. However, the smaller packs you do manage to find are usually 8$-15$ maybe a little bit more depending on the brand.
I havent found any in the Dollar Stores around here.
