Twine-Wrapped Bottle

This is such a super easy craft! The idea came from this post from a blog I frequent, The Kurtz Corner. I have seen many projects that take a simple, un-used item & wrap or cover it with twine. It totally transforms the object, and it's so quick & easy to do. I've also seen some great posts about painting a glass bottle,
which may be something I try in the future.
You can use any kind of bottle or jar for this transformation-
just make sure it is clean.

All you need for this craft:
- bottle of any kind, size
- twine
- hot glue gun
- scissors

I just carefully wrapped the twine around, starting at the bottom of the bottle, working my way up. I put just a few drops of hot glue along the way. So easy! Make sure not to put too much hot glue!

This next pic shows it after the first wrap-around. I decided I needed the twine a little thicker, so I quickly wrapped a second layer, making sure the bare spots were covered.
This went a lot faster than the first round.

The bottle I used had tempered glass almost up to the top. I decided to do something different, so instead of wrapping the bottle continually up to the top, I broke it up and left some of the tempered glass exposed. I liked it a lot with some of that
pretty glass showing.

Finished product...

And here it is in its new home on top of our entertainment center...
