DIY – Twine Covered Glass Jar

This is a pretty easy project and is a great way to upcycle those glass jars you have been saving!

For this project you will need:

  • Glass jar(s)
  • Twine
  • Craft glue
  • Hot glue
  • Embellishments

I chose a glass baby food jar.

If you look closely you will see that I did not get all the label off of the jar.  No worries as it is about to be covered by the twine.

I chose a smaller size twine as the glass jar I was working with was smaller in scale than say, compared to a spaghetti jar.  It also depends on the “look” you are going for.

I tied the twine around the top and put a few dabs of the craft glue down to help anchor it.  I then began wrapping around the jar being careful to keep the twine pulled tight and keep the rows close together.  After every three or four rows of twine, I would add a small line of craft glue and wrap over it.

After it was completely wrapped I cut the end off and glued it down with craft glue. 

I then used my hot glue gun to add a flower to the front of it.

I think it still needs a little something…what would you add?  Maybe some ribbon or lace around the middle?

I am using mine to hold my hot gun glue sticks so they are close by but not falling out of the  bag and all over my work table.  🙂
