DIY Yarn-Wrapped Bottle Vase
I've wanted to do this ever since I saw yarn-wrapped candleholders in Anthropologie's catalog a couple of years ago. Then this morning, I googled "yarn-wrapped" to see if I should hyphenate or not (the English major inside never goes away), and I discovered all manner of yarn-wrapped things! Apparently, it is quite the crafting trend right now. There are tons of bottles wrapped like I did, large letters wrapped for display on shelves or walls (also words wrapped by bending coat hangers into lovely cursive), small storage boxes, picture frames...you name it; people are wrapping everything with yarn. Personally, I love this trend because I'm all about soft wooley textures, and it's a great way to reuse old things and add color to your space.
What do you think? Love it or over it? Also, if anyone decides to try this diy, I'd love to hear about it in the comments. xo, Mary
