Twine, twine, twine...
Oh the things we can do with twine. I love the idea of twine wrapped wine bottles. It’s such an easy, decorative DIY craft! After looking over different steps on how this can be done, I gathered my resources and began the process.
- Glass bottles - they can be any shape or size you so desire.
- A roll of twine - the twine I purchased from Hobby Lobby is a pretty, hunter green color. The length was 208 feet (random, I know) and 3 ply.
- Elmer's Craft Bond Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive.
- Floral piece
Here's how it's done:1) Using an old wine bottle, I removed any outer labels by running it under hot water and scraping it off.
2) Once the labels have been removed, dry the bottle thoroughly to make sure the spray adhesive works properly.
3) Working from the bottom up, spray the adhesive about an inch around the bottom of the bottle. Don't worry, it won't dry quickly!
**Note: It helps to have either wax or parchment paper down to keep the adhesive from getting on your countertops. Another smart thing to do... Don't have your phone nearby since you can easily get the adhesive on that as well...
4) Once you have sprayed some adhesive onto the bottle, start wrapping your twine. When you have reached the point where you are almost out of adhesive, spray about another inch above what you have wrapped thus far.
5) Continue to spray and wrap the twine until you reach the top of your bottle.
6) Once you have reached the lip of the bottle cut the twine, spray the inside of the lip of the bottle, and place the twine in there.
7) Add a decorative flower or any other artsy item and ta-da! You have a twine wrapped bottle!
Based on the size of my wine bottle, it only took me about 25 minutes to complete everything. To help get the sticky off of your fingers from handling the adhesive, you can use soap and hot water or pour some nail polish remover over your fingers and that should do the trick.
I hope this has helped inspire your creative juices to decorate your homes with twine wine bottles!
