DIY Home Decor - Quilling, Wool & a Bottle

This is a story about a lonely glass bottle and a yarn of wool. The bottle was lying in the kitchen, moping, ready to be thrown out when the colourful wool came to the rescue. Along with a handmade paper Dahlia and some quilling rolls, our little bottle got a complete makeover.




I bought this yarn at Lincraft sale without any project in mind. It has been with me for months. Now that the temperature sometimes drop to -2 Degree Celsius, I hardly venture outside during weekends. That means, more time for paper craft projects. :D



The process was pretty simple, I applied some craft glue around the bottle and started wrapping the wool around it. Once that was one, I made a Dahlia following this tutorial.

And here's how it looks, among my lovely succulents and cactus.

  1. What a pretty bottle! It turned out great! Glad the bottle is less lonely now that you wrapped and decorated it. So -2C keeps you inside, eh? That's balmy and tropical over here in our Canadian winters! Haha!
