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!
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.
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!
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!
What kind of fall projects do you have going on??
