{Bottles of Yarn}

There are a few ways that I have decorated parts of our house using glass jars and bottles.  Here is a simple way to do this: use yarn (or some other form of stringy thing) and wrap a bottle.

  1. Tape the end of the yarn to the bottle.  Don't bother cutting the yarn's length yet - I've always found it more useful to just unroll the ball of yarn as I go rather than ending up too short or long when I'm finished.  Tape the end of the yarn vertically, pointing the very end down towards the ground.  
  2. Hold the tape in place there as you begin wrapping the bottle in yarn.
  3. When you get towards the end of the bottle, or when you are getting ready to stop, put a piece of tape right below where your yarn is - not yet at the bottom, but within an inch of the bottom.  Let it hang a little off the bottom of the bottle.
  4. Once you get far enough down the bottle, over the tape, lift up the bottom sliver of the tape and place the end of the yarn underneath it.  
  5. Then cut the excess.  Ta da!  Bottle wrapped in yarn.  You can see my label in the end result - this won't happen if you don't put it in front of light or if you use a label-less bottle ;)
