Decorating a Kitchen with a DIY Wine Bottle Crafts

   DIY projects from recycled materials are winning more and more followers all around the globe. I decided to pay contribution to this trend, practice a little and make decorative kitchen accessories.

   For my project I chose items as trivial as empty bottles, rough threads and PVA glue.

   My idea was to create decorative bottles with a textured surface in rustic style. The basic method is to cover the bottle with plenty of glue and wrap it with the threads line by line, close to each other for a dense layer.
   Yes, the work might be somewhat time consuming, but very rewarding in the end. You will get a bottle that you can either leave as it is or decorate further. You can add a graphic design or paint a simple image on it. These decorative bottles can also serve as vases for field flowers. You can serve your homemade wine or keep your favorite olive oil in them.

   I made a couple of such bottles because I like how they look in a set. The secret of a good composition from such bottles is to use bottles of different shapes and heights. Usually, three of them will look great together (remember, that uneven numbers are more favorable for compositions than even).

   You still don’t know how to decorate kitchen? Seriously? To create various decorative glass bottles you can use threads like mine or the leftovers of yarn for knitting. Think of adding lace accents or making patterns with buttons or beads.
   I hope that you like my bottles. I am sure that you can develop this basis DIY project into even more sophisticated and colorful projects of yours.
