DIY Yarn wrapped glass bottle and mason jar - upcycling craft
It’s fun to upcycle old glass bottles and jars, instead of just throwing them in the glass recycling pile. Wrap twine or colorful yarns around bottles and jars to create small vases and candle holders. As a bonus: if you cover the whole bottle with twine, you don’t even have to remove the label first! Wrap the jars loosely to allow the light from the candles shine through the twine. Because the twine is on the outside of the glass there will be no increased fire risk, but please remember never to leave burning candles unattended.
