DIY Yarn Wrapped Bottles

SOURCE 

1. Starting at the top of your bottle, apply a tiny dab of hot glue, just under the edge. Press your yarn into the glue horizontally, leaving a tail-end. Point the tail-end downward and start wrapping…as you wrap you will hide the end! You will want each layer of yarn to rest closely to the next, without any room in between. Try playing with different tensions to see what works best.

2. When you get to the curve, you may need to ease up slightly on the tension, or apply small dabs of glue to the bottle to hold the yarn in place, depending on the angle that the bottle curves outward.

3. Continue down the bottle until you reach the bottom. Apply another small dab of glue along the base, and once the yarn is set, snip the end.

4. This method will create a clean and smooth look. For a less symmetric, more organic look, let your yarn overlap and bunch up in various directions.

I think that I want to do the bottles in black and white stripes with the yarn and then do colorful flowers in them. I LOVE anything black and white! 

Sort of like this-
