For this project I decided to use up some yarn I had from a blanket I made a LONG TIME AGO and decorate an empty wine bottle I had. Wine bottle crafts are so popular right now.
I started off by making long chains of both red and black yarn. This was a great project to do while watching television since I could just mindlessly do the same chain stitch over and over.
Next I used a cosmetic sponge to applied some Mod Podge to the top of the wine bottle.
I place the end of the black chain of yarn on top of the Mod Podge and allowed that to dry. This helped to secure and hold the beginning of the chain in place while I was wrapping the rest of the chain.
Then I applied more Mod Podge and just continued to wrap the chain around the bottle. I worked it in sections, applying the Mod Podge and then wrapping to cover the bottle before the Mod Podge dried.
When I got about half way down the body of the bottle I wanted to change colors. I cut and knotted off the chain, and applied Mod Podge right to the knot to help secure it. I made sure to do this on the portion of the bottle that would end up being the back of the project. Once this dried I applied more Mod Podge and placed the beginning of the red chain right where the black chain ended.
I let that dry so that it was secure, and then I finished wrapping the bottle with the red chain in the same manner that I did with the black . . . apply some Mod Podge and then wrap, apply more Mod Podge and wrap. When I got to the bottom I knotted off the red and applied more Mod Podge to secure the yarn at the bottom.
Last, I added two white buttons to the front of the bottle.
I have a display shelf/space at our house, and I have a Mickey Mouse statue that sits in this display area, and this wine bottle makes the perfect addition to the display!
