|Get an attractive empty bottle or small vase. In our
example, we used an empty vitamin bottle and a couple of
vases that we got from the dollar store.
Tie a piece of the Incredible ribbon yarn around the
neck, leaving a tail of about 12 inches [30.5 cm]
|Tie two other pieces of ribbon around the neck and space
them so that there are three evenly-positioned groups of
ribbon. You can use about any kind of yarn you want --
or even more than one yarn! In one of our examples, we
used Trellis yarn as well as Incredible.
|Using the hot melt glue, position one or more of your
decorative items over the knot on the neck and glue in
Put a dab of hot glue on the side of the vase and
position two strands of yarn over it so that they cross.
|Using the hot melt glue, position more of your decorative
items where the ribbons cross and
Stand the vase up and tie off the ribbon below
the point where it is secured with the glue.
Fill the vase with a pretty flower arrangement.
Use your imagination! Putting leaves in an arrangement
fills it out and makes it look pretty. You can also put
items in the vase with the flowers -- we used some of our extra
shells in the blue vase as filler to hid the flower stems; in
the vase with the yellow flowers, we put some red berries from
the holly tree in the yard.
