How many times have you pinned a project on Pinterest and it just keeps calling you to make it?
The project looked simple enough, and I thought I'd give it a try. Here's the photo I pinned:
All you need is some 4 ply jute string, an inexpensive glass vase and hot glue. You can find these glass vases at a thrift store for a buck or two.I found the jute string at Hobby Lobby.
It took me a little more than an hour to glue the jute string on the vase. I only burned myself a few times, but no blisters : )
I had a hot glue epiphany while doing the project, though...
I learned that it's better if the glue isn't super hot because if it's a little cool the glue is easier to manage and doesn't get all over the place. Plus, you don't get burned (as much)! I just unplugged the glue gun if the glue got too hot and then plugged it back in when the glue was difficult to squeeze out.
Remember that for your next project and you'll save yourself a lot of trouble.
Here's my finished project.
The jute wrapped vase goes great in a coastal themed room; here it is in our daughter's bookcases.
