Alright. Confession: I drink a lot of wine. YUM!! There's just something so delicious and relaxing about sitting down in the evening with a nice glass of sweet white wine. The fact that it helps make me sleepy is also great. Although, hubby has had to wake me up from my wine-induced slumber in front of the TV on more than several occasions...
Anyway. I save a lot of my wine bottles in hope of finding some purpose for them...and this project was a great upcycle for one of those bottles!
DIY Yarn Wrapped Wine Bottle Vase
Yes. This is sitting on my grill outside. I was having some lighting issues inside haha.
All you need to make this project is a hot glue gun, used wine bottle, and some yarn!
I also used this Silicone Craft Mat and the below hot glue gun finger caps for this project. Seriously BEST idea.
The dried hot glue would peel right off of the mat and the finger caps prevented my from getting any nasty glue gun burns while wrapping the bottle.
I didn't take any during pictures (bad blogger!) but I think anyone can figure out how to make it. I started at the bottom of the vase. Dab on a little hot glue and attach the yarn, then just continue wrapping it around the bottle hot gluing as you go until the whole thing is covered!
Here's a close up of the bottle. A few stray glue gun string still - whoops!
I got some dried eucalyptus from the freecycle in my town to put in the bottle. This was my first freecycle, I was so excited!
So essentially, all this project cost me was the yarn. Since I had obviously enjoyed the wine on another occasion :)
I have my new vase sitting up on my bookshelf in my family room near my pom-pom flowers.
I love how it turned out, and how easy/cheap it was to make it. That's my kind of decor!
