Instant Vases from Milk Bottles

Izabella Simmons February 07, 2012

Spotted on Laura Parke's A Girl Who Makes: milk bottles transformed into vases, wrapped in twine with a touch of neon color.

For instructions on how to re-create this look, see below.

Photography by Eric Linebarger.

Materials:

  • Glass milk bottle.
  • Natural jute twine; try your local hardware store or source online: Jute Twine is $2.33 at Home Depot.
  • Twine in neon colors; try your local hardware store or source online: Pink Twine and Yellow Twine are $5.21 each at Home Depot.
  • Glue.
  • Small paintbrush.

Instructions:

  • Cut off about 2 feet of twine (the thickness of the twine and the size of your bottle will determine how much you need).
  • Start from the top of the bottle and work your way down, using a paintbrush to spread the glue on the bottle, one small section at a time.
  • When switching from natural twine to neon, tuck the loose end of the twine under as you wrap the colored twine around.
