Lighten Up Your House This Summer

Arts and crafts is one of my favorite past time. I love to use indigenous materials and turn them into a gorgeous decoration or something. Have you ever tried to make an ordinary vase with the help of embroidery floss? If you would like to try this simple project at home, here is the instructions.
What You Need
  • Glass or plastic bottle
  • Thick white crafts glue
  • Embroidery floss in desired colors
What to Do

1. Wash the bottle. Let it dry.

2. Place a dot of glue at the bottom edge of the bottle.

3. Begin wrapping the embroidery floss around the bottle, keeping the wraps close together and applying more dots of glue when needed.

4. To change colors, cut the floss and glue the end in place.

5. Continue making stripes of color like this until the entire bottle is covered with floss. Let the glue dry.
