DIY: yarn bottle vases

how to: yarn bottle vases!

obviously they make us very happy!

what you need:
 clean beer or wine bottle, or empty mason jar
mod podge
paint brush

clean the inside and outside of your bottle
(you don't need to peel the labels off because they will be covered)

cover the bottle with a thin layer of mod podge, starting at the bottom and working your way up
(only do a small area at a time as the mod podge will dry out)

(also notice the great hex nut bracelet on display)

starting at the bottom, wrap the yarn around the bottle 

if you want to use multiple colors, cut the yarn at the desired place and either tuck it onto the last row before starting the new row of color or start the next color where you left off

the going may get a little tough going up the curved part of the bottle, but stick with it! the mod podge should hold it in place

once your bottle is fully covered all the way to the top, cut the final string and tuck it into the yarn, or just use mod podge to hold it in place

final products - lovely!

try using different yarn patters (like our gray and white striped one) for a more textured look

our newest crafter, Monica!
love the multi colored pattern

note: when holding them like this, they may get mistaken for beer koozies!
