Upcycling Wine Bottles: DIY Twine Wrapped Decorative Vases

Upcycling or reusing things is always a good thing. Besides most cases, it’s even easier to get what you want when you make it yourself. I saw this idea on Pinterest and I thought it was so pretty and rustic that I had to give it a try. I really like the idea of repurposing things, upcycled things usually turn out super nice and brings life to any space. That’s why I made this Twine Wrapped Decorative Vases out of Wine bottles.

I have a table in my entrance that needed some love, so I decided to upcycle some wine bottles I had sitting around to make some cute wrapped decorative Vases. I bought some twine, fake flowers and branches to add some pop of color to that space!

I fell in love with these vases shared by Katie over at Juggling Act Mama. She did a lovely work there, especially with the rosettes. That post gave me my first idea. and I had also seen this cute vase too via Indulgy but I didn’t have a pretty lace like that one so I went for the Ribbon!

Here is how I made Twine Wrapped Decorative Vases:

What you need:

  • clean wine bottles
  • Twine
  • white glue
  • brush
  • and things to decorate as you like.

glass bottle, container with white glue, brush, coil of jute rope

Thin the glue 50/50 with water. The idea is to have it a bit more fluid than it usually is.

applying white glue with the help of the brush in the glass bottle

Spread the glue with a brush in sections.

placing the rope at the top of the bottle to start wrapping it

I started wrapping the bottle with the twine. I always try to hide the ends by trying to overlap the second loop over the end.

finishing wrapping the bottle with hot glue at the base of it

At the end, when the whole bottle is wrapped, cut the twine and glue it with Hot gun glue. Even every 10 or so loops add some hot gun glue, it helps keep everything in its place while wrapping.

You are done!…. for now! Lol

I made some little flowers with the twine to decorate it.

making some loops with the rope around the pliers

Grab the end of the twine with a needle nose pliers and make some loops around it.

shaping and adjusting with both hands the small circle made with rope

placing hot glue, join the rope circle well

When you feel it’s strong enough, remove the handle and keep looping the twine until the desired size. Every now and then add a bit of hot glue to keep it in place.

cutting the circle made with rope to the desired size

When you get the size you want cut the twine and glue the end. Make as many as you want.

I made 3 bottles and I decorated them differently. So just glue the flowers as you like. Imagination is the limit. And for the last detail, I add some ribbons and bows.

This is how my bottles look, what do you think?

  2. What size twine did you use? I’m having trouble determining the right size to use on this craft. Thanks!!

    1. I’m really not sure, exactly the size but I would say no more than 2mm {0.07 Inch}. It’s best if it’s not too thick. But to be honest that doesn’t really matter much. What matters is that it gets the look you want.

      Glad you like this idea and that you want to make it. Hope you don’t mind sending me a pic of your final result!!!
