Just over a year ago Susu and I had our first Crockpot Tuesday / Coastal Kelder night where Susu made some short ribs, then we crafted. One of the things she made was a twine wrapped bottle, and I decided I wanted to make one to hold my first hydrangea bloom of the year. Time to craft..
Twine Wrapped Vase
What you’ll need:
- Hot glue gun
The best part of this project was that I already had everything I needed to get started that day. I decided to use a soup can, and a glass soda water bottle that I cleaned to make my mini vases. You can really use any type of container, since you’re covering up the outside with the twine. After I cleaned my containers, I plugged in my hot glue gun and got ready to wrap.
Put a small amount of hot glue on the bottom of the container, where you want the twine to start wrapping. Secure the twine in the hot glue, and start moving your way around, adding a little more glue where needed to keep the twine secure. I did this about 3 times on the bottom, so the first layer would be good to build off of, and not move around.
Continue wrapping the twine up the container, while adding a little glue here and there to keep it all in place. I found that the glass bottle was easier to wrap since it was flat, and my soup can had grooves which made it tricker to keep the twine in line.
When you’re ready to stop wrapping the twine, cut it and just glue the last bit down. I completely wrapped the soup can, and only wrapped part of the glass bottle, but added some blue & white twine on top. Just like that you have a cute, rustic vase!
You can add some other ribbon or decor to the outside to class it up, or just leave it plain. Next time I might wrap the middle section of a colored vase, like a dark blue… who knows, but I’ll definitely be making more of these easy vases.
