Visual Instructions

You will need to remove the labels on all your bottles. After doing so use Goo Gone to get rid of the residue without marring the surface.

Cut a door in the side of your bottle that’s large enough to put your ball of string into.

After inserting your string or twine tape the end onto a dowel or pencil to help feed it through the top of the bottle.

Now comes the fun part… decorating it! Here is what I used.

I wanted some really wide ribbon that would cover the door in the back of the bottle. I glued some smaller ribbon around it so I could tie it on in back. This way I can quickly remove it should I need to put new twine inside.

Tie it around the bottle making a bow in back. Add some of the smaller ribbon around the lid.

I added a fake flower I had. It actually came off an old hair band!
