DIY Glass Container Wraps

3 Materials
1 Hour

Looking around my home I realized I was tired of seeing the same old look - of plain glass containers - some I had gotten at thrift stores - like vases, jars and even glasses - and wanted to change things up a bit. I decided to shop my home - looking at things with a fresh eye to see what I could give a new look to.

I came up with an easy and fun way to do it! Just by adding a decorative touch to your favorite glass containers with jute net wired edge ribbon! It's the perfect way to add style, texture, and new life to your glass decor.

At first I thought I would also need a roll of jute twine and needle (pictured) to connect the jute netting, but found it too thick so I used thread from leftover pieces of the cut netting instead.

Let's begin by wrapping the netting around the container for sizing. To keep the jute ribbon piece perfectly symmetrical, I counted the square rows to see how wide and high it needed to be. I only needed four rows for the height to cover the exposed glass area of the smallest piece. As for wrapping the netting around the container, I wanted a snug fit - one that included overlapping the ends to match the design.

To do this, overlap the jute ends and using thread from the scrap piece (by pulling the threads out) tie the corner areas where they overlap . . .

Matching the design.

For the larger pieces, wrap and measure how many rows are needed for the look you want, and add additional rows using the same method of tying the net together by overlapping the edge and tying together each corner area

This is how I did it for the middle size glass container.

And for the tallest glass container, I connected it like this.

Once the netting was connected by overlapping and tying each square edge together, this is how they looked. So cool!

And then I looked around for others and found this glass pitcher.

And put this together.

Adding decorative trim to items completely changes the atmosphere and design! Something I really like doing!

    Could you use any other ribbons? I can't tolerate the smell of jute or burlap,do they make other ribbon like the jute used here?
