Recycle Glass in an Artful Way

Another Pinterest-inspired project under my belt.  I saw these yarn covered bottles and thought they were beautiful.  So I thought to myself, “I can make those!”.  I picked 3 different glass bottles – a Perrier bottle, a wine bottle, and a glass jam jar.  I used Tacky Glue and a foam applicator to spread the glue on each bottle.  Then you wind the yarn, being careful to hide your start and stop.  The possibilities are endless.  **Note to self – next time choose fatter yarn!  The smaller the yarn, the longer it takes.  But I think the results are worth it.

  1. Wow! They turned out great! I like yours better than the original. The jam jar is so adorable – and would make a great teacher gift with flowers inside! 🙂

    • Thanks! It was really easy and you could do almost anything with them- larger jars to hold office supplies, smaller opening versions to hold diffuser reeds and oil- only limited by your own imagination. 🙂
