Add a unique touch to your table with these great bakers twine wrapped jar vases. Old Time Pottery has these great jar shaped glass vases for only 50 cents each. I grabbed a couple of them to add a little flair to. These would be great for a fall themed table setting or make a bunch for organizing in your home office. The price is right so grab a bunch then decide what to use them for later.
In addition to the Old Time Pottery jars, you will need decoupage medium and baker’s twine. Baker’s twine can be found in any color of the rainbow and is a really fun medium to work with.
I found it easiest to start around the center and work your way down, then do the contrasting stripe in the middle, and last go from the middle stripe to the top. The curved areas are more difficult to do so starting on the flat surfaces is best. Apply decoupage medium to your surface and lay out your twine in a straight line.
I apply my decoupage medium with a popsicle stick. Apply it heavily then lay your twine down in rows. Push up occasionally to ensure your twine is staying tight without gaps.
You may have to use even more decoupage medium on the curved areas as the twin will want to slip up. Give the twine lots of slack in those area and do not pull taught. Just lay it down along the curves. Take your time and be patient. In no time at all you will have some great decoupage twine wrapped vases for your home.
Allow your vases to dry completely (preferably overnight) before use. Add in flowers, pens, paintbrushes, or anything else that you can think of. These are a great way to add some flair to any room in your home.
