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?
