Macrame cool plant hangars, coasters, rugs, wall hangings and other decorative items to give away as gifts. (Many clever horse owners have macraméd haynets from baler twine.) Binder twine is strong, so it will even last a summer outside holding your hanging plants.

5. Belts and BracesNeed a belt and dont have one? A length of baler twine is inexpensive and adds a rustic flair to your wardrobe. Scratch, scratch.
6. Horse EquipmentBraid several lengths of binder twine together to make inexpensive lunge lines, lead ropes and rope halters. No one will ever use them because they are too rough and picky, but they'll look better hanging around the stable than hanks of unorganized twine.
(Although binder twine lead ropes might be rough on the hands, twine is just the thing to make breakaway tie loops from. I also use it to temporarily tie up feed buckets.)
7. Costumes and WigsMake a scary costume. My cousin once made a Cousin It costume using binder twine for hair. It was too heavy to wear, but it was a great idea. Other costume ideas: Lady Godiva, a sea anemone.
