Twisting Turning Twine

Ever wonder what to do with all those empty bottles or cans that you have?  I have found a solution (at least for some :))!!  Hot gluing binder twine to them gives you an easy, handy up-cycle.  Twine wrapped around a bottleI chose to only use hot glue on one side of the bottle (since sometimes you can see the hot glue, so I can turn that side towards the wall).  I would hot glue and then wrap as tightly as I could around the bottle and then start all over again with a dab of hot glue.  It was a slow process to begin with and could get a little tricky around the curving of the bottle.Twine VaseAfter the third try, I was wrapping the bottles considerably faster and without gaps in the twine.  I would like to try it again with a soup or coffee can.  But for now, I have three vases - now, if only I had flowers to put in them! :P
