Procedure:

STEP 1.

Fist of all we must prepare our bottles. We clean them with water inside out and we keep it for some minutes under the water, so we can peel off the labels more easily. Later, we remove the glue with a sponge and dry it with a clean towel!

STEP 2.

As you can see at the collage below you start from the top making a knot, leaving a tail-end and adding white glue around the bottle. Point the tail-end downward and start wrapping.As you wrap you will hide the end! You will want each layer of yarn to rest closely to the next, without any room in between. Try playing with different tensions to see what works best adding white glue as you continue wrapping till the end.
