I did get some crochet done in the past week but today I want to show you my bottles. Since I used yarn, it still counts for a project although no needles or hooks were involved. I saw a couple of those on Pinterest and thought I might give it a try. Especally since I had a lot of small bottles left over after New Year’s Eve (Fentiman’s Tonic Water).
What you need:
– Small bottles, cleaned thoroughly and dried
– Yarn (cotton yarn for 3.5 – 4.0 crochet hooks turned out to be perfect)
Smear glue generously onto the bottle and then slowly start winding the yarn around it. Start at the top, this makes it easier when you get to the point where the bottle gets wider. The other way round does not work. I had to learn the hard way.
The hole collection looks really nice on my window sill. Very springy.
