I don’t know about you, but since my glass recycle is only picked up once a month it tends to pile up down there. Not only that, but I often miss that one day a month in my hurry to get everything hauled up to the top of my driveway just in the knick of time (I DO tend to put trash hauling off until the last minute!)! and there never seems to be enough time to go looking for that silly recycling schedule. But, LUCKY ME, in my sticky stash I found all kinds of cool glass bottles . . . a tall, skinny champagne vinegar bottle, some interestingly exotic salad dressing bottles, even a simple Mason jar . . . but the one I chose for this project was a maple syrup bottle.
Hem tape or bias tape
Sheer fabric such as organza
I rolled and sewed the tape to a square of fabric instead of using a glue gun since this is so small and I don’t really like the feel of hot glue on my fingers. I also wanted the frayed edges of the fabric showing beyond the rosette. For a complete tutorial on making burlap rosettes (a similar process but with a glue gun) you can go to the link here.
Just keep on wrapping until you have the size you want and then trim the sheer fabric into a circle shape around the rosette. I left about 1/2″ showing and purposely frayed it up a bit.
I kept adding a strip of fabric here and a strip of fabric there until I was satisfied with how it looked and then I added some random pieces of old jewelry and a few buttons.
Many blessings to you,
