{ Another Crafty Project }

I'm pretty proud of this quick little task! It's not a Christmasy craft, but that's okay. My inspiration for this project came from A Soft Place To Land (she's got TONS of awesome crafts!).

I have about half a dozen glass vases around my house and they really don't match the rustic/warm theme of my decor. I try to fill them with seeds or stones or something natural so they aren't so harsh, but this works WAY better! Was way easy too!

I bought a hot glue gun! Just start at the bottom, trying to
be sure that you get the base nice and straight.

Keep going around and around until you're at the top!
My twine was really thick; I wish I would have paid
more attention to getting it tight to the row below.

Ta Da! Some branches from outside finish it off, and I'm the happiest
I've ever been with my end table. :)

Oh, and here's a picture of where my Christmas tree landed:

Alright folks! I'm pretty determined to finish off that scarf today, so I better get started. I really want to cast on some mittens soon! I want them to have a nice long wrist part that will tuck under my coat! I'll let you know when I decide on a pattern for that. :)

Only 4 more sleeps until Santa gets here!!!


  1. The vase is beautiful, I might have to try that! And I love the photo of you and your hubby (well, I asume that's him :) in the foreground too!

    We're leaving for my parents' on wednesday morning, so I'm not sure if I'll have the time to comment before that. And my parents have the SLOWEST internet in the whole world, so I'll probably not be very connected while I'm there. So I'm wishing you a Merry Christmas now, in case I don't get the chance later :)

    Hope you have a wonderful holiday with lots of good fod and presents, and family and friends!

    Hugs! / Jenny
