Glass bottle and clay vase decoupage project


I have to admit, I have not been crafting much of late. I just had not time for it. Here is one of my recent and partially unfinished decoupage projects on glass bottle and clay vase.

This is a smaller size decoupaged glass bottle. It is finished and I am using it for my fresh salad veggie oil.

The clay vase is not finished yet, but I am still using it in my household. It’s an authentic old clay thing. I keep fresh apples and other fruits in it. That’s all for now as to my decoupage projects.


Coconut and yarn crafts project: bottle decor and handmade box


Here is another one of my bottle decor and upcycling projects.

Upcycling: yarn for glass bottle and coconut

I have gotten a roll of natural linen yarn. I also picked a nice bottle for upcycling. This bottle decoration project is very easy, unlike the decoupage one. You simply roll the year around the bottle. I used yarn of two colors and have crocheted a small pendant to decorate the bottle.

The only difficulty was to wrap the yarn around the part of the bottle between the think and thin. I had to use a bit of glue to make the yarn stay there and not slip in loops.

I also had an empty coconut I was sorry to throw away. So, I used the same yarn to crochet a cover for it and now my daughter is using it as a box to store her hair pins in. So, it’s a simple, but very useful coconut box and yarn bottle decor and upcycling project.
