DIY Project #6: Yarn Wrapped Bottles

DIY Project #6: Yarn Wrapped Bottles

 

If you have ever wondered what those cute little mint sauce and oyster sauce bottles lying around your recycled bottle collection could be made into, then this easy DIY is for you!

You can follow the simple steps below to see how we made these very cute wrapped bottles with just a few supplies from our crafting cupboard.

These make great gifts and are good for the earth too (especially if you use organic wool).

Let’s get started with materials:

Some tips on these steps:

  1. Don’t put too much glue on the bottle at one time as it tends to dry and you have to re-glue instead of just adding glue
  2.  Make sure you keep all of the ends at the back so that three sides are completely even and pretty
  3. Use varying widths of colours for a nice contrast
  4. Mix in some glittery wool for extra added sparkle

Once you have completed Steps 1 – 5, you just have two more things to do:

And if you haven’t made them as a gift for a friend.

(Or if you have an you’ve decided to keep them for yourself!)

Then all you need to do is:
