Step 1: Supplies

Cord: Lots and Lots of cord... I cant tell you how much, each bottle is different
Bottle: Washed and Dried, inside and out. Make sure to remove all water spots
Threaded Needle: Cord screws into the threads at the base of the needle
Pegs: I use brass rivets, used as a map to tie the Turks Head Knots
Hole Punch: Used to punch holes in the painters tape to hold the pegs
Painters Tape: To hold the pegs in place, and to make your map for the Turks Head Knots
Marker: To write on the painters tape
Cloth Towel: To remove finger prints and dirt from your bottle
Krazy Glue or Super Glue: This is used to secure the knots in place to the bottle
