Yarn Covered Glass Bottle

Decorating glass bottles is something I've been meaning to try for a while. Last year I upcycled an insulated coffee cup and turned it into a flower vase (you can read about it here) but I'd never really picked up a glass bottle to work on it from scratch before.

Well, a couple of weeks ago someone at the office placed an empty glass bottle in the trash can, which was wrong in more ways than one. I picked up the glass bottle to send for recycling and then, suddenly, I was inspired to take it home instead. Just because the bottle had a really pretty shape  and it was a shame to waste it.

Fast forward to yesterday. While my son was doing his homework and my daughter was sleeping a fever off (because, unfortunately, we are right in the middle of flu season around here), I picked up a ball of rustic yard leftover from a rug I made a zillion years ago) and a bunch of fabric flowers a friend gave me last year (because she knows I love these things), and got down to work. 
I started from the top, adding strips of glue here and there and placing the flowers randomly. I didn't bother removing the bottle labels, as they would be covered anyway.

I also didn't glue the flowers on, I just secured the stems with the yarn.

Overall, it went a lot quicker than I had anticipated. I did get glue all over my hands, but I had a lot of fun too, and I'm already thinking about the next water bottle to embellish.

And in the meantime, this one will make a great decor piece to cheer up our house next spring (which can't come soon enough if you ask me).
