DIY- Jute Vase out of a Creamer Bottle


Every winter I go through lots of creamer bottles, I don't know if I just drink more coffee then or if there are just better flavors out over the holidays, but I just love creamer in the winter! A few months ago when recycling a few of these creamer bottles, I decided to keep them in case I found a use for them.


Today, I decided to create something out of one of those bottles! I had already cleaned it and removed the label so it was ready to go! I wanted to make a natural looking jute/hemp vase. All Wal-mart had was hemp that is around $6 a roll, it may seem a little high of a price but I used a small fraction of it to make this, so there is still a lot left to make more!

All I did to make this is wrap the Jute around the bottle, and used hot glue to secure it every few inches.


Just keep wrapping and gluing until you cover the whole thing. I had some gaps in mine but I didn't worry about it, I like the imperfect look. I was a little worried that the hot glue would melt the bottle, since it is plastic but it didn't melt it at all.


I am really happy with it! It was quick, easy, and really cheap.....which makes for a great DIY project! I may cover the smaller bottles too. I have a fake flower in it for now but it could be used just as easily for real flowers as well.

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!  I am hoping to get to make some stuff this weekend, I have been so bogged down with work and travel that I have been absent from the blogging world and I miss it!!!

  7. SEO Spyglass is modern application offered under seo
    powersuite enterprise which is used to increase the ratings of a
    website by capturing and analyzing the link value
    of the competitor’s website. Unbelievable, but it would give you a very good start, if you will try to learn a technical
    aspect of the project yourself. Put these facts together and you have a significantly
    competitive market.

  8. In the refrigeration system working under normal circumstances, the normal temperature high-pressure pipe about 50 to
    between 60. Unfortunately this also applies to the winter months,
    and although you may be thinking that there is no way you’re going
    to be making it colder in the car when it’s already
    -1° outside, most modern cars utilise the air conditioning system when
    on defrost mode. It is important to ensure that the air conditioning
    start up goes as smoothly as possible.
