Hello Fellows,

I have always liked antique looking items, especially those wrapped or tied using jute. Jute is a very versatile and eco-friendly material, especially the jute strings. This idea is inspired by people in some rural areas of India where Jute is used from kitchen utensils to furniture and many more.

All you need is some jute strings (or twines), some glue like Elmers Glue or Fevicol (in india) and glass bottles


DISCLAIMER : This iBle is by no means intended to encourage drinking habits with an excuse of collecting empty bottles... ha ha :-)

Lets get started, the possibilities are endless

Step 1: Stuff you need

This is the stuff you need.
  1. Jute strings, you can get them as twines, try experimenting with coloured ones, I like natural the most.
  2. Empty glass bottles, if they are attractive in shape, its even better.
  3. Elmer's glue or similar (Pick a tube or bottle which has a pointy nose to draw lines of glue)
  4. Scotch Bright like scrub (if you have a clear bottles with no labels, this is not required).
  5. A scissor.
  6. Some decorative beads (wooden or ceramic or even plastic), I got wooden easily in a craft store.  
HOW TO REMOVE THE BOTTLE LABEL
  1. Scratch the label little bit using a paper cutter and soak the bottle in hot water for an hour. This way the label and its glue will become weak
  2. Rub using scotch bright or similar scrub to remove the label, clean and dry the bottle using a cotton cloth.
