I always see DIY watermelon mason jars on Pinterest but I wanted to make something a little bit more adult that looks like a watermelon but I don't need to be drinking pink lemonade ...I'll be drinking rosé!

Gather your materials: Dollar Store utility rope, glass, lime green paint, paint brush, hot glue and a black Sharpie paint pen.

Starting at the bottom of your glass hot glue or e6000 the rope about 1/4 of the way up. It is up to you what glue you want to use! I am hand washing these so hot glue isn't going to be an issue for me. Let me know what glue you'd use!

    Whenever I wrap things with twine it ends up crooked and uneven going across the bottle. What did you use if anything to keep it even?

    How do you wash them ? Seems to me they wouldn't last long.

      She used utility rope which is made of nylon and doesn't absorb water. It's similar to what is used in boating.

    You glued the rope then painted it, how did you paint the underside of the rope after it was glued on? Wouldn’t you have had to paint the rope First then glue?

      Exactly! The paint seeped through! I could figure that out! I would like to ask, is there colored utility rope , you can buy? Thank you!
