Hello ribbon lovers! It’s Sandy here with a home decor project this time.
I was in an antique shop last fall and saw the most beautiful bottles wrapped in heavy duty jute – and stamped! And I just knew I had to figure out how to replicate one – or a few!
An important tip I can’t emphasize enough: if you plan on stamping on the bottle after you’ve got it beautifully wrapped, choose as flat a bottle as possible the first time. It takes a bit of a touch to get the feel down, and once you mess up – well, you get to start the wrapping all over again! The Perrier bottle I showed at the end was a near-disaster — there was so much roundness to the surface that I missed stamping entire sections, so I had to go back with a marker and redraw the missing parts. Ooops
Has this inspired you to consider altering an item in your home? A soap dispenser, a lamp, I can picture so many items in my house getting all wrapped up in Twisted Burlap soon! What might you try? Leave me a comment!
