I’ve been seeing wrapped bottles and vases all over the place lately! They are super cute and would make beautiful wedding centerpieces & decor! To show you just how easy and adorable these centerpieces are, I made you a lil’ tutorial! Get ready to get your craft on… enjoy!
- Recycled Bottles or Vases
- Jute Twine and/or Yarn
- Multipurpose Glue (hot glue gun & glue optional)
Step 1 – Getting Started: Starting at one end of your bottle, glue the edge of the twine to the bottle. This is where the glue gun is helpful if you have one. Just a dab of hot glue will quickly hold the twine to the bottle. If you’re using the multipurpose glue you’ll need to wait until it dries so the twine doesn’t come loose as your winding it around the bottle.
Step 2 – Glue & Wrap: Use the multipurpose glue to cover the surface of the bottle. You don’t need to cover the entire surface. Glue sparingly – I just made some swirls and squiggles. Now start wrapping the twine!
Step 3 – Finish Up: Wrap the entire bottle, cut the twine and add a larger dab of glue (multipurpose or hot glue) to secure the bottom edge of the twine. You’re done!! Easy-peasy, right?
Step 4 – Repeat: If you have other bottles, repeat steps 1-3 for each. I decided to spice it up and used colored yarn for my other two bottles. Using yarn is a great way to incorporate your wedding colors into your DIY centerpiece! Oh, and don’t worry if you get glue on your yarn or can see it in the cracks. It will dry clear.
And there you have it! These wrapped bottles make simple and sweet centerpieces either on their own or with a few flowers tucked in!
If you want to give your centerpieces just a little something more, hot glue a few embellishments to them! I added three mini fabric flowers to the twine wrapped bottle to add some pops of color.
The great thing about this project is that is can be used in your home when the wedding is over!! What do you think? Will you be making your own wedding centerpieces?
