Look what I made Monday!

I have a ton of wine bottles. I also have a lot of wine (I bought like three bottles that are sorta not to my tastes, and some when I was in Italy)...but that's all besides the point. Anyways,  Aladdin and I have already made wine bottle lamps, and those are really neat, but I decided to make something else out of them after I saw the coolest thing on Pinterest!

....yarn wrapped wine bottles!! They are adorable!

Okay, so you need....

Wine Bottles

Yarn

You'll use Modge Podge and paint a strip on as your wrap the yarn around the wine bottles. Don't pull too tightly, or you won't get an even wrap! I also found it easier to tape the top of the yarn inside the mouth of the bottle before I began.

This is the finished result: 

YAY! 

I loved these so much, I wrapped my pencil holder, too!



Then, I had a few corks I didn't know what to do with, so I put them in an old wineglass:

Pretty cute cork holder!

Okay, needless to say, I had a craft weekend. Do you like crafts? What's the coolest craft you've done?

  1. That's way cute. :) Good job! I'm impressed with anyone who sees cute stuff on Pinterest and actually does it. :)
    I do knit, but that's about it. I'm not overly crafty, but I wish I was.

    1. This was my first attempt! There were lots of other things I thought were cool before, but this seemed easiest, lol.

  2. I'm terrible at crafts. But I made a stegosaurus costume last Halloween. It was pretty cool.

  4. I just learned how to make wine bottles into little self watering planters. you soak a bit of yarn in nail polish remover (with acetone), warp the yarn around your bottle at the halfway point; light the string. Let it burn for the count of ten, drop the whole thing in a sink full of cold water and the bottle will snap in half. Sand the edges, invert the top half into the bottom half and run some wick (like six strands) into the bowl part and fill with dirt. Plant away.

    1. That's awesome, Rena! I have always been hesitant to by the self-watering planters from the store, now I know why! I can make them myself!

  5. Oh my goodness, those are gorgeous! I haven't been into crafting for a LONG time, but you make me want to change my ways. (No, Crystal, you don't have time. Stop staring and drooling.) ;)

    1. Thanks, Crystal!! LOL. They really didn't take a lot of time! Though, my boyfriend wrapped on in the time that I wrapped two, so maybe I'm just a speed demon, haha!

  6. Very nice. You can really go crazy with the yarn, though. Just beware when yous start thinking about wrapping furniture in yarn!
