Yarn and Twine Wrapped Vase

Share this post

I have another quick and easy project for your mantle, or any other little nook you decorate for the season.  This year I am going with winter white and silver so that my mantle will last a couple months.

White and silver winter mantle

I shared my Wrapped Paper Cones with you last week.

wrapped paper cones using paper board yarn, twine and ribbon.  Easy DIY project

Now I want to show you this glass vase I updated with the same yarn and twine.

Yarn & Twine Wrapped vase

This is a vase that I’ve had for years but didn’t look quite right on my mantle.  It needed something, maybe etching, or glitter.  After wrapping my paper cones I was on a roll and went with the same technique.

I started with some hot glue on the bottom edge and wrapped my way up, alternating yarn and twine.  I like the flared rim on this vase so I left it visible (or maybe I ran out of yarn).

I added some stems from Michael’s I picked up for around $5 and there you have it.  A simple wintry touch to my mantle.
