String Covered Vase Craft

String Covered Vase Craft

This pretty rainbow colored string-covered vase used to be a hot sauce bottle! What a fun way to give a new, beautiful purpose to an old container.

What you'll need

  • Glass bottle
  • Rainbow colored string
  • White craft glue
  • Strip of green felt, measured to go around top of bottle
  • Toothpick
  • Scissors

Helpful Tip:

This project can be done all in one sitting or in several steps. If your child needs a break, simply place the bottle somewhere and pick it up again later.

Look for rainbow colored string at your local craft store. String is sold in large spools.

Save glass bottle from condiments, sauces, or juice to use for projects such as this.
