You could even go the extra mile and use this beautiful bottle art as a flower vase! Fair enough, it won’t be able to fit a lot of flowers but less is more and minimal has always looked good!

These quick projects are also made with twine:
- Empty wine bottle washed and dry
- A roll of thick twine
- Roll of thin twine
- A roll of burlap ribbon with lace about 2” wide
- 1 roll of lace about ¾” – an inch wide
- Glue gun
- Three small artificial leaves (you can cut some down from larger ones)
- Turquoise and orange craft paint
- Small paint brush
Glue the twine & lace
- Step 1. Use the thicker twine and glue gun to wrap around the bottom of the bottle. The twine should start a little bit higher than the bottom and go up about 4 times around the bottle or about 1” high.
- Step 2. Wrap the next section in the burlap and lace ribbon and secure with the glue.
TIP: Remember to keep all your cuts where the twine and ribbon come together on one side of the wine bottle that will be designated as the back of the bottle.
- Step 3. Use the smaller twine to glue the next section of the bottle that is about 1 1/2” tall.
- Step 4. Wrap the next section up with another piece of the burlap and lace ribbon.
- Step 5. Use the thicker twine to wrap the bottle in another layer that is about 2 inches tall.
- Step 6. Wrap up the part of the bottle that gets thinner as it tapers up to the opening of the bottle. Use the thin twine and wrap it about 1 ½” up.
- Step 7. Use the lace and put one piece around where the thick and thin twine meet from steps 5 and 6.
- Step 8. Put one piece of thick twine and then one layer of burlap ribbon and you should be at or near the top of the wine bottle. If you need to add a few layers of twine to get to the top that is fine.
Make the decorative flowers
- Step 9. Make two twine “flowers”. I used a small piece of cardboard to start the center of each “flower” (please see the photo). The larger flower is 2” wide and the smaller one is 1” wide.
- Step 10. Paint the larger flower turquoise and the smaller one orange and let them dry.
- Step 11. Glue the leaves onto the back of the flowers and glue the flowers to the front of the bottle.
