I was cooking dinner the other night, the Brussel Sprouts, for anyone who follows my blog. Anyway, I noticed how unique and structurally captivating the olive oil bottle was. Luckily I was at the end of this said bottle. This making it a perfect candidate for my 3 R lifestyle, renew, re-use and recycle!
This bottle is composed of smooth, shiny, rich green glass. I was interested in using a material that would compliment the color and add texture to contrast the fabulous features of this bottle. Macramé cord was my perfect solution.
This macramé bottle vase creation was fairly simple. I used hot glue as my bonding agent. Then continuously wrapped the macramé around the bottle. As i did, you can alternate colors of macramé cord for a more interesting piece.
There may be some spacing in between the cording. In order to make this vase have a more polished finish, I wrapped embroidery thread in the natural groove of the macramé cord. Again, alternating colors for personal taste.
Wrapping the neck of the bottle will help to finish the vase as well as cover up the detail for the original bottle lid. Here is my finished bottle vase. Please excuse the cheesy fake flowers.
Being in a wrapping mood, I combed my home for something else I could wrap. I came across this wooden bangle that I can’t remember every wearing. It just lacked any oomph to any outfit I attempted to wear it with.
In true 3 R fashion, pun Intended, I wrapped the bracelet. I choose to do a color block on this creation. I love turquoise and orange seemed like a great contrast, the off white serves as a perfect neutral to balance both of the other bold colors.
