Upcycling Wine Bottles: DIY Twine Wrapped Decorative Vases

I saw this idea on Pinterest and I thought it was so nice that I had to give it a try. I really like the idea of repurposing things, upcyled things usually turn out super nice and brings life to any space. That’s why I made this Twine Wrapped Decorative Vases out of Wine bottles.

Upcycling Wine Bottles: DIY Twine Wrapped Decorative Vases

I have a table in my entrance that needed some love, so I decided to upcycle some wine bottles I had here to make some cute wrapped decorative Vases. I bought some twine and fake flowers and branches.

Here is how I made them:

 What you need:

Twine, bottles, white glue, hot gun glue, ribbons (optional)

Thin the glue 50/50 with water. The idea is to have it a bit more fluid than it usually is.

Spread the glue with a brush in sections.

I started wrapping the bottle with the twine. I always try to hide the ends by trying to overlap the second loop over the end.

At the end, when the whole bottle is wrapped, cut the twine and glue it with Hot gun glue. Even every 10 or so loops add some hot gun glue, it helps keep everything in its place while wrapping.

You are done!…. for now! Lol

The decoration!

I made some little flowers with the twine to decorate it.

Grab the end of the twine with a needle nose pilars and make some loops around it.

 When you feel it’s strong enough, remove the handle and keep looping the twine until the desired size. Every now and then add a bit of hot glue to keep it in place.

When you get the size you want cut the twine and glue the end. Make as many as you want.

I made 3 bottles and I decorated them differently. So just glue the flowers as you like. Imagination is the limit. And for the last detail I add some ribbons and bows.

     

This is how my bottles look, what do you think?

Cute or what???

    What a very cool idea!! I don’t have a lot of wine bottles around, but I know many people who do, and I have this very big open “window” thing in our living room/front hall that I feel needs a little something. I think these would be amazing for that!

    Thanks for linking up with my comment love linky. It’s so appreciated, and I would love if you linked up again.

    What a great idea and so simple, too. I have a whole roll of that twine – I use it for various crafts and things – adding this to my list of things to use it for.
