Glass Vase = Yarn Vase

Inspiration:

Ever since I made the yarn egg, I’ve been dying to wrap more things in yarn.  I love this!

Supplies:

Glass Vase

Yarn

Glue (I used Aleene’s Fast Grab Tacky Glue)

Fray Check

Scissors

1.  Wash and dry your glass vase.  Apply Fray Check to the end of your yarn strand for a neat start.

2.  Apply a line of glue and start wrapping the vase.  I used a fast tack glue.  If you experience shifting, you may want to wrap a few rows around the vase and allow them to dry before you finish wrapping the vase.

3.  Continue to apply a line of glue and wrap the yarn around the vase until finished.

4.  Isn’t this adorable!  To finish my vase, I applied two felt flowers I purchased from Michaels.

    I saw this in Lion Brand catalog they send out once a month & wanted to try it. I used Elmer’s clear school glue…no luck. Gorilla Glue…no luck. I’ll try your suggestion of Aileen’s tacky glue & hope that the glue was my problem. Thanks. I’ll let you know if it works.

    P.S. Did you look at that catalog & see the European bus wrapped in yarn? Too cool!

      Judy,

      I did not see this in the Lion Brand catalog…I actually thought I was pretty clever thinking it up :). I did go look at the Lion Brand website and request a catalog. They have AWESOME ideas, and I can’t wait to do some of them. I am really into wrapping things in yarn. It is so therapeutic. Thanks, Judy!
