I found a few glass bottles in my Ohio childhood garage that I wanted to reuse and make something with. I decided I would try turning them into cute rustic vases. So I found some twine, pulled out my hot glue gun and got to crafting. Here’s how I did it.


  • Twine
  • Hot Glue gun and glue
  • Glass bottles (it can be a water, wine, mason jar etc.)

Start by making sure your bottles are clean on the inside and outside.Working from the bottom of the jar, place a small dab of hot glue on the jar and secure the twine to the glue.

Once it has hardened, begin wrapping the twine all the way up the bottle closely. Add a dot of glue here and there on the way up to secure the twine. Once you have wrapped the jar to your desired height, cut the twine and secure it with one last dab of hot glue. Feel free to get creative…wrap the entire bottle, half the bottle or make small sections. I chose a few different looks and really like how they look together. Finally, fill them with water and add your flowers. Display them together or side by side for a modern take on the flower arrangement.
