Use leftover yarn to make a beautiful bud vase
This simple diy is a great way to use up leftover yarn and upcycle empty bottles into bud vases. The best thing about it is that no special skills or equipment are required. Trust me, anyone can do this!

  • How to decorate a bottle vase. Diy Yarn Wrapped Bottle Vase - Step 1
    Step 1

    What you'll need: an empty glass bottle, yarn (you can do the whole thing in one color if you prefer; I just have a thing for stripes), glue (I used Mod Podge, but any white "school glue" will work), a sponge or paint brush, and scissors.

    Start at the bottom, brush on a healthy dollop of glue, and start wrapping your yarn. (Some might prefer to remove the label first, but I don't think it's necessary since you will be totally covering it up with yarn.)

    Step 3

    I decided to change colors about an inch and a half up. If you are a perfectionist, you'll want to try to have all of your seams (where one color ends and a new one begins) on the back side of your bottle. But I wouldn't worry too much about it if they don't line up; once it's finished, you'll hardly notice.

    Keep wrapping and alternating colors, remembering to brush on more glue every few strands.

    Wrap yarn all the way to the top, and you're finished! Place a flower (or in my case, a bouquet of beaded flowers) in your new gorgeous wrapped vase and admire your creation!
