This is a pretty easy project and is a great way to upcycle those glass jars you have been saving!
For this project you will need:
- Glass jar(s)
- Craft glue
- Hot glue
I chose a glass baby food jar.
If you look closely you will see that I did not get all the label off of the jar. No worries as it is about to be covered by the twine.
I chose a smaller size twine as the glass jar I was working with was smaller in scale than say, compared to a spaghetti jar. It also depends on the “look” you are going for.
I tied the twine around the top and put a few dabs of the craft glue down to help anchor it. I then began wrapping around the jar being careful to keep the twine pulled tight and keep the rows close together. After every three or four rows of twine, I would add a small line of craft glue and wrap over it.
After it was completely wrapped I cut the end off and glued it down with craft glue.
I then used my hot glue gun to add a flower to the front of it.
I think it still needs a little something…what would you add? Maybe some ribbon or lace around the middle?
I am using mine to hold my hot gun glue sticks so they are close by but not falling out of the bag and all over my work table. 🙂
