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
My friend at Junque Chic 5 had extra wine jugs she had been saving and agreed to donate them to my crafting addiction.
Since I see these larger wine jugs used for lamps and all sorts of cool things, I knew they would have many possibilities.
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.
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.
I glued “here and there”, probably using two glue spots per jute circle around the jug.
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.
So there ya have it. Another project to use up those wine bottles!
