Project Rewind...jute wrapped wine bottle!



Hey guys, are you ready for another project rewind?  It's fun to look back on older projects.  Here's the tutorial on my Jute Wrapped Wine Bottle!

...So I needed an accessory for above the shelf next to our map picture frame in our small mud room.  I found this jute twine at Michael's, and loved it's color and texture. And was instantly inspired to create a natural accessory for above my shelf! I shopped the attic looking for an old vase that was the right size and shape but found nothing. Then I got the idea to recycle a large wine bottle!


I started this project with tacky glue, but quickly realized that good ole' Elmer's glue works better. It doesn't set up as quick and gives you more time to make any adjustments to your rope. I started the rope at the bottom of the bottle and glued every other time I wrapped the rope around the bottle.


The bottom section of the bottle is where I used the most glue. The middle I used much less. And the top where the bottle gets smaller I used more glue again to keep the rope from gaping and showing the bottle underneath.
 


And here it is finished in our small mudroom.  I just love the natural n' organic feeling of this accessory! And wouldn't 2 or 3 of these be great in a grouping? Wow, accessories that start from the recycling bin...so fun!

I'm linkin' up to these fun link parties...here!

  6. Hi Jane,

    Great project, it's a nice addition to your shelf.

    I made some jute wrapped eggs for the Easter season and love the texture it brings. I think you could probably jute a lot of accessories! It's a fun material and so affordable :-)
