D.I.Y Tutorial: Decorative Glass Bottle

This decorative glass bottle is a super easy way to add a little colour to your home!

I originally saw this on Pinterest, and knew I had to try it! I have a lot of wool lying around at home (from a recent Pom Pom addiction!) so this was perfect for me, I also think it’s great because you can recycle old glass bottles. You could use a coca-cola bottle or even a wine bottle!

For this project you will need:

  • A Glass bottle
  • Wool
  • PVA/Mod Podge
  • Scissors
  • Paintbrush

Step 1: Painting with Glue

Using a paintbrush, paint the glass bottle with a layer of Mod Podge or PVA Glue (I used PVA Glue mixed with a little bit of water to make it thinner)

I only put the glue on the section I was going to cover with wool, and just added more glue as I went along. This stopped the project getting very messy!

Step 2: Wrapping the wool

Start wrapping the wool around the glass bottle on top of the glue, keep all your ends on one side of the glass bottle – this will be the back!

You can use one colour all the way up the bottle, or you can add different colours. I chose to use 3 different colours – purple, blue and white.

When changing to another colour, you simply cut the first colour (again leaving the ends all on one side!) and start wrapping another colour straight after.

You may need to add more glue as the project goes along.

Wait for the glue to dry, and you’re finished!Β 

I chose to use mine as a vase, I added some flowers hand-picked from the garden by my little brother! Another way to style this would be to make a few and have them standing together.
