Crafty Bottles

[Alternate post title: An excuse to drink more!]

So we've had an empty Disaronno bottle on our kitchen counter for the past few weeks. I didn't want to throw it out, although I'm not sure why. After my last bottle project from Christmas, I just knew there was probably some potential.

Yum.

I turned to (what else?) my Pinterest boards for inspiration and found these in particular:



With these ideas in mind, I headed to Joann's and bought a roll of jute for $2.49. After soaking the bottle in hot water to get the label off, I settled in with my glue gun and began wrapping... and wrapping. I just glued at the corners every few rows or so, to keep it all in place.


About a half hour later, I ended up with this:


It seemed a little lonely by itself though, so I stole another random bottle/vase from a different room in the house and gave it a jute makeover too. I'm kinda diggin' them.


And I've still got plenty of jute to spare! Not bad for $2.49. So, what crafty things have you done with empty bottles?

Those look really great - I can see someone paying good money for them if they were at World Market or something!

Very crafty. And I agree with Sara - they look store bought. That's the best kind of results. Yaay!

I did this same thing with some skinny white candlesticks I bought at Ikea a few years back... But I got bored with the project halfway and the middle one is still half wrapped with a ball of skinny hemp string hanging from it! lol
