Make A String Vase

What a fun and easy craft!  It goes great with the tissue paper flowers in the last post!  
Here's the video tutorial on how to do it:

You will need:
-  A clean glass jar
-  String or yarn of  your choosing
-  White glue (slightly watered down)
-  Popsicle stick or toothpick
-  Scissors

Starting from the bottom and working a small section at a time (or the glue will dry), begin wrapping the string.  Every once in a while, use the popsicle stick to push the string down and make sure there aren't any gaps.  Continue wrapping until you reach the top lip, where the lid goes on the jar.  Because this area is uneven, you will wrap multiple times and it may be thicker than in other areas, which is great!  When you are happy with the coverage, snip off the yarn and tuck the end in between two other pieces, with a dab of glue.  Let it dry and you have a beautiful vase, sure to add color to any decor!

Happy Crafting!  You can find us on Facebook!
