Spotted on Laura Parke's A Girl Who Makes : milk bottles transformed into vases, wrapped in twine with a touch of neon color. For instructions on how to re-create this look, see below. Photography by Eric Linebarger . Materials: Glass milk bottle. Natural jute twine; try your local hardware store or source online: Jute Twine is $2.33 at Home Depot. Twine in neon colors; try your local hardware store or source online: Pink Twine and Yellow Twine are $5.21 each at Home Depot. Glue. Small paintbrush. Instructions: Cut off about 2 feet of twine (the thickness of the twine and the size of your bottle will determine how much you need). Start from the top of the bottle and work your way down, using a paintbrush to spread the glue on the bottle, one small section at a time. When switching from natural twine to neon, tuck the loose end of the twine under as you wrap the colored twine around.
