While we were on vacation last month, a sweet neighbor watered my gardens for me. I wanted to get her something nice but simple, so I thought I'd try an idea I saw on Pinterest and make her a vase with some flowers from the garden.
Fortunately, I had all I needed on hand, including an empty bottle of coffee syrup and that giant skein of white yarn I bought years ago with the funny idea of knitting something.
- White school glue
- Empty, clean bottle
My first attempt was a lazy one where I tried to skip removing the labels. Bad idea. They show through! Remove them.
3. Soon you can lay down blocks of glue like this and wind the yarn around quicker.
4.When you finish a block, press the strands down to close the gaps. The yarn is very forgiving, so you can fix the straightness as you go or at the end.
See where I got a little eager to take a picture and didn't close the gaps correctly on the neck of the bottle? Don't do that! ;)
I may try a couple more in different colors to make a set of three. It would look pretty on a mantle or as a centerpiece.
This might be a fun project for you or your kids to do with some scrap yarn and empty bottles!
