DIY Fall Twine Vase

Let me first say, I love fall.  I love when the leaves start changing colors, the humidity starts to break down, a light breeze comes into the air and the temperatures drop slightly.  I love thinking about fall bonfires, hoodie sweatshirts, and spiced apple cider.  Pumpkin patches, hay rides, and picking apples all come to mind when I think about fall.  College football, tailgating, wearing pants, long sleeves, and hats!  Fall decor is so beautiful, too; Orange, red, yellow leaves, pine cones, wood baskets, mini pumpkins and gourds….so many cute things!  I have been noticing lots of fall inspired crafts on pinterest and decided to take on one of my own.  I recently finished a big hutch for the kitchen (post to come soon), and I need cute things to help style it.  I found a couple little vases/bowls at the dollar store and thought they would be perfect to decorate.  Then, while I was putting away some recyclables I noticed a glass pickle jar that would be perfect for my project.  I cleaned that baby out and got to work….

You will need: Some sort of glass jar/bowl/vase, twine (I used natural sisal**), hot glue gun, and hot glue.

**I found this 100ft pack of twine at Hobby Lobby for $5.99, but you can print a 40% off coupon making it around $3.50!

Supplies

Start by gluing a piece at the top on the inside a little bit, and then start wrapping and gluing around the jar.  I did a little at a time because I found that I had to press the twine against the jar for a moment so that it would stick and not just pop back off. I put the glue on the jar, and then pressed the twine into it.

Wrapping

Keep going and gluing….

I just stopped after the lip curved in at the bottom.  Cut twine and secure last bit with a lot of glue!  Voila!

I didn’t buy any fall leaf/flowers to put into the vase yet, so I found these (maybe poisonous?!) berry leaves that looked so cool in the backyard!

DIY Fall Twin Vase

I have lots of extra twine left over so I am thinking up some projects that I can use that on, too!!  I think this could even be cute just putting the twin on one section of the glass…like in the middle, or the base!  This was such a cheap and easy project to do.  Probably under $3 total!

  7. What a fantastic use of old jars! These would also make really great candle holders. Definitely adding this to my list of things to try!

  8. What a great project and way to use glass jars without sending them to the recycling center. I featured you today on Creative Green Living here: http://www.creativegreenliving.com/2013/03/turn-old-jars-into-sisal-twine-wrapped.html

  9. Very cool! I did this on my blog then thought to google it and see what others came up with. I like this because it looks like you could use that an herb planter.
