I have so many little vases from our wedding, and I like little ways to dress them up every once in awhile. This only takes a few minutes to do, and you could use any color combinations you like - I just happen to really like fading colors (obviously). You only need a few supplies, too:
1. Cut all your pieces of string; all mine were the same length to make even color layers, but uneven layers would look cool, too.
2. Tie your strings together in order (light, medium, dark, medium, light, etc.). I used triple knots tied really tight so they don't slip when you're wrapping your vase. I also trimmed the excess knot ends closely.
3. Start wrapping. Once you have a bit wrapped that will hold itself in place, add a dab of glue to the beginning and rub around to hold the first few wraps together.
4. Finish wrapping your string and glue the end in place. 
I love a good, quick DIY every once in awhile or anytime. I can't wait until fall - I think these would be really nice made with golden yellows, browns, and rusty reds. What colors would you use?

  5. So simply and cute! I was collecting glass bottles for months but had to throw them all away last night because I'm moving out and don't have the extra space to bring them along... Sad, sad.
