Recycle Used Beer Bottes

4 Materials
1 Hour
Give a second thought before throwing away any used glass bottle next time. I recycled some of mine into this vase using some simple and fun techniques.
First wash the bottles with warm soapy water and dry completely.

Apply glue on the bottle and start winding the yarn around it.
Glue small sections at a time.
For decoupage, cut out the desired patterns from your paper napkin. With the brush, apply little amount of Mod Podge on the yarn and gently press your motifs on it without any air bubbles. Then apply one or two coats of Mod Podge over the motifs and the entire vase so that the napkin motifs and the yarn get thoroughly adhered to the vase.
