I thought today I would share another of the wine bottles that I did. This one is different from the first one I shared in that I used jute for the entire bottle.
What you will need:
- Wine bottle cleaned and label removed
- Jute (natural and green (or any color of your choice)
- Burlap flowers
- Lacy ribbon
- Tombow glue
- Spray paint, if you choose to paint your bottle.
Making the bottle:
- *Spray paint your bottle and let it dry for several hours or overnight.
- Decide on the pattern you want to make and start with the natural jute and wrap bottle with it ending at the back of the bottle.
- Start the green jute where the natural jute stopped and wrap however many times you wish. On this bottle, I wrapped three times around
- Start again with the natural jute and wrap (and I think on this bottle I wrapped 10-12 times) around alternating with the green jute and finish the neck of the bottle with the natural jute.
- Let the bottle sit for a bit to allow the glue to dry.
- Decorate with the lace ribbon and flowers.**
*After I finished this bottle it turned out that I really didn’t need to spray paint it because I ended up covering the whole bottle. Live and learn!
**The reason the flowers are not lined up on this bottle is because my “seam” at the back of the bottle was not lined up. So I placed the flowers on the different seam endings and thus that ends up being the front of the bottle. Each bottle I do is a learning process as I learn this new craft.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
