We begin this DIY craft project with a few inexpensive items that you can purchase at your local arts & crafts store or through the affilliate links below.  You'll need jute cord, as well as a glue gun or Tacky Glue to adhere the cord to the bottle. Sidebar: listen, I try to be girly, but between chasing around my 3-year old, nagging my 10-year old, and the rest of my motherly, wifely, entrepreneurial, civic duties...I just don't have time to redo my nails. The crafting struggle is reall! Y'all get it right? Good, next step...

If you'd like your cording to have a bit of a sparkle, try this shimmering gold twine instead!

Begin laying down a layer of glue that isn't so thick that it protrudes through the string. When you begin, you'll need to hold the cord onto the bottle until it dries. Once it has dried, begin to wrap the cord around the bottle applying glue and pressure where needed.

I achieved this look by pairing the sparkling twine with cotton cording that is also great for creating macrame wall art projects!

Next, I cut one of these faux flowers and detached them from the stem.  This will serve as an appique for the wine bottle art, as shown below.

I used the same techniques on this glass vase, however, this time I tried using yarn instead of twine and cotton cording. The only drawback is that the glue is much more visible when using yarn because the yarn soaks up the glue and hardens. The glue spots are not visible throughout the entire vase, only when I used a bit too much. Try using the glue sparingly if you'd like to use yarn for this craft.

The remaining flowers were placed inside the vases and tadaaa! You've got beautiful centerpieces for your dinner table, end table, book shelf and more!  Now that you've added some eye candy to your living space, try spicing up the aroma with your favorite incense and these DIY wooden incense burners.
