A few weeks ago I ordered up some catalogs to see what everyone out there is inspired by. I have so many ideas now! Its so hard to figure out what to do first....
I had found some cool glass at the thrift store so I figure that this is as good a place as any to start. Its not exactly hand blown glass, rather a pet shampoo bottle. A glass pet shampoo bottle. Huh. Even my human shampoo is bottled in plastic.
|This time I didn't do knock-offs, instead these textured vases were the inspiration.|
|This project used the front clear shampoo bottle and one wine bottle.|
|Creating a single chain, I crocheted several lengths of this twine.|
|I wrapped the crocheted twine around the bottle, securing with hot glue as I wound it around.|
For the black bottle, I cut the sleeve from a black wool sweater. The wrist of the arm went around the neck of the bottle and I cut the length at the bottom of the bottle. Using the crocheted twine, I hand sewed it to the bottom and to the top of the wool.
|Here they are together.|
|The texture is fun!|
|These look cool as they are and I also think they would make awesome bud vases.|
