diy wednesdays: yarn vase

by the curiosity shoppe

this is a simple project that combines two of our favorite elements about crafting: using leftover supplies from a previous project (in this case, the yarn) and reusing something that was on its way to our recycle bin (the glass vase). yesterday morning as derek and i were brainstorming ideas for this week’s diy wednesday project, he came up with the idea of wrapping a glass vase with various colors of yarn. fortunately we had a few leftover skeins from last weekend’s at the , and i was able to fashion this yarn-wrapped vase out of some brown and green in a matter of minutes. since the flowers i picked up lent themselves to the ’70s rec room vibe that was going on with the brown and green, i thought this would be a good bouquet for a boy and plan on giving it to derek to keep on his desk at work this week! click here for the full project instructions or just click “read more” below.

have fun!

here’s what you’ll need:
-glass vase or bottle (ours is rectangular, but any shape would work)
-double-stick tape

1. apply a few strips of double-stick tape to your vase, down the length vertically and around the top and bottom.

2. starting at the bottom, begin wrapping your yarn, making sure to stack the layers (don’t overlap) and tuck in the loose end under the first couple rounds. when you’re ready to switch colors, cut your yarn and secure the trimmed end to a piece of the double stick tape.

3. continue wrapping until you reach the top of the vase, tucking in the tail end of the yarn when you’re finished.
