I suffer from major craft ADHD. I jump from project to project and I can't seem to complete anything because a new idea pops into my head that I just have to start. I guess this is better than crafters block (you know, like writers block) but it is turning my craft studio into a disaster zone and my supplies are starting to trickle into the rest of my home...soon they will take over the entire house! I need help before Mr. Designs by Vanessa gets buried in glitter and yarn. Hmm glitter and yarn...that would make for a great new project. See what I mean? I need a craft intervention!
As much as I would like to see Mr. Designs by Vanessa covered in glitter and yarn, I have decided to start and actually finish a project today. I have yet another fabulous tutorial for my fabulous readers on this fabulous day (I just wanted to see how many times I could use the word fabulous in a sentence). Read on my crafty friends...
You will need yarn (1 color, 2 colors, 10 colors...this is completely up to you), a bottle of some sort (think upcycling), glue (I used craft tacky glue) and scissors.
Start by squeezing a thin line of glue along the bottom of your bottle. This is an old perrier bottle but you can use old soda bottles, wine bottles, etc. You can even use old jars or containers for a different look, the possibilities are endless.
Simply place the yarn on your glue and press down to secure in place. Continue squeezing small thin lines of glue followed by placing your yarn, wrapping up and around your bottle. Make sure your yarn is wrapped closely together to prevent gaps or holes.
Keep going, don't succumb to the craft ADHD (this is mainly a pep talk to myself). You can switch yarn colors at anytime (that sorta feels like a new project), just glue the start of the new strand of yarn as close as you can get to the end of the old strand and continue gluing and wrapping.
That is it, super easy and super cute! Add a flower or find a nice shelf to plop it on for a decorative look. Woohoo, I actually completed a project today! Now if I can only bring myself to organize my craft studio...
Don't forget to add your upcycled yarn vase photos to the Designs by Vanessa Tutorial Flickr Group so we can all see your finished product!
