Nautical-inspired twine wrapped vases....with a bright, fun twist!
Growing up as the third girl in a family of four kids, I always felt the need to stand out. To be different. Not in a rebellious way, but because I wanted (needed) to be my own person. Which led to a lifetime of decisions like french horn instead of flute, cello instead of violin, babysitting instead of corn detassling. And, later in life, choosing to be friends with the "alternative" crowd....which was funny, because when it came to being different, I stood out like a sore thumb in that crowd! But, hey, at least I stood apart from my sisters.......!
Case in point: these vases. I've had this roll of twine sitting around for a while now, and I love the look of twine-wrapped anything. But could I just make some lovely twine-wrapped vases? Nope. I had to go and add some beads and make them all funky and colorful.
And you know what?? I love them!
Because the truth is I don't really make my decisions JUST to be different...they just sometimes turn out that way. I make them because they're right....for me. Being different is just a bonus.
Here's what you need to complete this project:
- clear glass vases - any size/shape
- wooden beads
- thick twine
2. String beads onto twine - I used 6-8 beads per vase, leaving large spaces between beads
3. Start at the bottom of the vase and leave a short tail. Wrap the twine up the vase and back down, tying a knot at the end to secure the twine.

I hope you feel right at home!
