Jute-Covered Bottles

There is this super cute and trendy consignment shop here where I live and the owner also does her own crafts and sells them as well. I saw these jute-covered glass bottles and asked a million questions about them...I'm sure she got the idea I was going to make some myself...and I did. :)

Here's how:

Supplies: Jute, Mod-podge, glass bottle of your choice, number stencil or stamp

How to: {super easy} hot glue down one end of the jute onto the bottle and wrap that bottle with jute until it is covered. Then stamp or stencil on your numbers (I used my Silhouette to make a stencil but you could use stamps or skip this step too). Then cover in a thin layer of mod-podge to seal the deal.

End product:
(and sorry for the sideways pictures! We got a new computer and I cannot figure out for the life of me how to flip them! Its frustrating...hopefully you get the idea!)

Very simple and very cute!
