Pinterest Challenge! WARNING: This Post Contains Beer.

What to do with extra beer bottles hanging around? (Not mine- For the record…)

Make vases!

This project took 20 minutes, start to finish, with pictures! Easy peasy… now to find something to stuff in them :)

There was no website I could find as to where they orginated, but here is my original inspiration that I pinned to my DIY board on Pinterest

Here are my own rules:

The cast of characters:

Mod Podge
Thick Yarn I had hanging around
Glue Gun
Beer Bottles
My hands 

Check out that beautiful- work in progress- kitchen back there ;)

Take the Mod Podge and slather in on the bottom half of the bottle

Start twirling.  The very edge didn’t stick at first, but I kept twirling and secured the edge with some hot glue later.  I found that twirling the bottle while holding the yarn tight was the most effective way.

Continue adding Mod Podge to small sections and twirling.  It got tricky as the bottle got thinner at the top, so instead of winding tightly I let up on the slack a bit and more or less let the yarn loosely sit on top of the prior row.

I wound the yarn all that way to the top then secured the top with some hot glue, and then very beginning, at the bottom with hot glue. And like that… I reused, reduced and recycled :-)
