This post is a day late since I was having camera difficulties. Don't worry!! You're still going to get today's tutorial too so there will actually be 2 tutorials published today!! This is the first, and the second will be published a bit later. Thanks for your patience!!
I saw this PB ornament on Pinterest last week and just knew I could make my own version!!
Step 1: GATHER SUPPLIES
- 2"-4" tall glass bottle with cork- Three 12"-15" lengths of 24-28 gauge wire
- Sheet music
- Small beads
- Needle-nose pliers
Step 2: "MAKE" WIRE
Twist one end of the 3 wires together into a ball.
Grip the "knot" with one pair of pliers.
Using another pair of needle-nose pliers, grip the 3 wires about 1" away from the "knot"
Twist the wire to get desired look.
Note: To twist the wire faster, turn both pairs of pliers in opposite directions. Be careful to not twist too much, because the wire will break at some point!
Step 3: ADD WIRE TO BOTTLE
I drew the diagram below to show how I was able to add the side loops on the bottle.
Add Side Loops to Bottle
Using the diagram above (or your own method) create two loops on the side of the bottle that will attach the bottle to the wire hanger.
Add Top Hanger
Make a loop at the end of your remaining wire.
Attach it to one of the side loops on the bottle.
Create the desired hanger appearance.
Make a loop at that will properly fit into the other side loop.
Clip off any extra wire.
Step 4: FILL BOTTLE
Tear a small part of your sheet music into 2 strips that will fit through the top of the bottle.
Place the 2 strips with the "nice" sides facing out and put the them in the bottle.
Pour the small beads into the bottle.
Note: Make sure you get beads on both sides of the sheet music and even a little in between if possible.
Wasn't that super quick and easy?!? I may be biased but I think my bottle ornament turned out better than the PB one!! hehehe
Thanks for reading!! Until next time...
