Today, we have another great craft in our series, A Craft Made By You.   Katie from Creatively Living blog is here to share a totally creative tutorial for a real cute Spring Craft!   DIY Flower Vase — I love a trash to treasure story, don’t you!!!

Jute Wrapped Wine Jugs


DIY Flower Vase

My friend at Junque Chic 5 had extra wine jugs she had been saving and agreed to donate them to my crafting addiction.

DIY Flower Vase-3

Since I see these larger wine jugs used for lamps and all sorts of cool things, I knew they would have many possibilities.

DIY Flower Vase-2

I decided to do a simple project with them for May Day (since they work so well as vases). I cleaned them up, and printed out some numbers.

DIY Flower Vase-4

I wasn’t sure how I would attach the numbers and I didn’t feel like cutting all of them, so I just cut out one and used it to help me freehand trace the number on the jug. If you cut vinyl, it would work perfectly!

Then I took my ginormous pile of twine and started wrapping and hot gluing.

DIY Flower Vase-6

I glued “here and there”, probably using two glue spots per jute circle around the jug.

DIY Flower Vase-7

I wrapped the top and bottom. I think it would be cool to use twine or yarn on the entire vase too.

I think I’ll keep these 3 for me….

and give one to my giving friend with the number 5 and some lilacs in it.
