So here's how I did it. The materials list is short and cheep--yarn, empty bottles, and a glue gun. Check. Check. Check.
I called Nate home from work early to help me start my craft by drinking a few beers. Just kidding, we forgot to take out the recycling this week so we had some from last week. I also used an empty olive oil bottle that was in there.
Picked out a few colors of yarn: brown, mustard yellow, deep blue and olive green.
I repeated with a few different styles bottles and colors of yarn (I want to get a wine bottle covered for some height, but we didn't have any in the recycling, so I guess I'll put that on our to do list this week).
Then I just stuck some twiggy/flowery things in there and put them out on our TV stand, which was still looking a little bare after taking down the holiday decor.
