Have you seen those vases/bottles from Ballard Design and Pottery Barn? If not, see above. Well, BD wants 60$ for the mid-size one. They're a nice beachy touch, and although I'm not into that trend in a big way, I do think it's silly that they charge so much for something that you can make for free. Here's what I used:
I had another of the vinegar jugs that I used in this post, but I've seen similar items at consignment shops. The twine was a buck at Target, and I got it forever ago, so I'm not counting it as costing anything. And I probably stole the scissors from my mom's house.
To start, I tied a ring around the top, where I wanted the netting to start.
Then I cut 8 lengths of twine, each of them about 4 times the height of my jug. I tied them around the starting ring so they hung down in two equal strings. Like so:
{First I tied 4 of them at NSE and W, then tied the other 4 in between to make sure my spacing was even}
Then I started tying strings together. Adjacent strings, coming from 2 different knots above.
{This was after one round of knot tying}
{After eleven rounds- all done)
After that I pulled the threads tight across the bottom and tied them to a string across from them:
{I'm holding it in my feet}
Finished! It's all just square knots. Not bad, eh?
