Yarn Wrapped Bottles

Hello Crafters!
Today i'm going to be sharing with you these yarn wrapped bottles that I made. It took me about a hour to do two. It may get a little messy and sticky but the concept is pretty simple.


  • yarn in color of your choice
  • any type of glass bottle, I uses a beer bottle but you could also use  a wine bottle or a spaghetti sauce bottle. 
  • Elmer's glue
  • Q-tip to spread the glue on and a paper plate to hold the glue.
  • scissors
First thing you do is spread glue on the first two inches or so of your bottle, it depends on the size though, you don't want to put glue on the whole thing to start with. THAT WOULD BE MESSY.

Next take your yarn and starting at the top slowly wrap the yarn around. You don't want any gaps or lumpy places. When you get to the end of the glue just apply more and keep wrapping. Have patience. ;) The second one i did i was ready to be done and started going pretty fast and it ended up overlapping and looking all lumpy. :P. 

When you get to the end of the bottle just cut the yarn and secure the end with a dot of glue. Yay! Another fun craft accomplished. These make awesome vases, pencil holders, just a place to store long skinny things. You could also put letters on the bottles and make it spell a word. USe your imagination and Happy Crafting!
