Got plenty of empty glass bottles lying at home, why don’t you up-cyle them to add to your home or garden decor? There are many ways you can up-cycle bottles, you can make lamps with them, candle/tea light holders, paint them or do thread work around them. I love this particular form of work and the bottle has a unique look with different threads be it coir or wool or yarn. Here I’m going to show you how I did mine with multi-coloured thread.
1. These are the items you will need. An empty bottle with cap, ring, stickers and dust removed, yarn/thread spools, fevicol or glue, spoon or brush to apply the glue, cloth to clean up excess glue.
2. Pour out the glue in a small container or as I have on plastic sheet, and use the brush or spoon to start applying glue to the bottle in parts. You could do this with your hand as well, but I suggest not, as it ends up dirtying the thread with glue as you progress.
5. The base which in this case is a regular cylindrical shape is easy to wrap without space between threads, but as we reach the base of the neck, you will need to use the back of the spoon to keep pushing the thread back in place without spaces.
7. Use a wet rag to clean up the excess glue on the threaded bottle, however wait a day before you do it so you don’t move any threads. Then use it as you will, to just brighten up a drab corner or have some flowers or a money plat set in them.
