over the weekend i worked, hung out with the mister watching anthony bourdain no reservations (he loves it) and worked on these little yarn bottles.
they are a project i'm working on for my wintery tablescape collaboration with Debbie and i am so excited to share them with you!
wrapping yarn around these clear lambrusco bottles i recently polished off was time-consuming but so worth it in the end:
i started at the top of the bottle and worked my way down. first i tied a knot around the top then wrapped the rest of the yarn around the hanging string from the knot.
for the best results pull the string semi-tightly when you wrap it. don't wrap it so tight that it bunches up (especially for thinner string) but just enough so that is stays in place.
finally when i got to the bottom of the bottle i used fabric glue to bind the end of the string to the rest of the wrapped string.
so far i've finished a cranberry one and two cream colored ones. i'm thinking about using them for my thanksgiving table as well!
i'll be working on some more projects for thanksgiving/our tablescape throughout the week and i can't wait to share them with you all ;-)
tomorrow-another wedding photo or two!
