Wine Bottle Upcycle

I don't know about you, but, once in a while I see a wine bottle that has potential.  Sometimes it's the shape, sometimes it's the color.  With this one, it was the finish.  It had a nice 'brushed' finish and I immediately knew what I wanted to do with it.
The great thing about this one was the label.  It completely came off after soaking for a few minutes in hot water.  There was no need for the peanut butter trick
Once the label was off, I grabbed the jute twine and some E6000.  The neck of the bottle was given a thin coat of glue and the twine was wrapped around it.
I bought some burlap ribbon from the dollar store a while ago, had no idea what to do with it, but knew it would be used at some point in time.  Since I only needed a small piece for this project, I've got lots left for something else......Winning!
That's right, 9 feet for a dollar. How's that for a bargain? 
A dot of glue was added to the center of the bottle and the ribbon was set in place.  When it was dry, the two ends were glued in the back.  I grabbed a button and a metal thingamobobbie....yes, that's a technical term for all the crap, I mean, treasures we keep hidden away in boxes....and glued it on the front.
And my project was done!  
I grabbed a silk rose from the closet to make it pretty.
It's all I had and I wasn't running to the store for something else because it's still cold and icy out there!  Just keepin' it real...
And, naturally, as soon as I wanted to take pictures the sun went behind the clouds.  
Such is the life of a blogger!  

I received a bottle cutter as a gift for Christmas and haven't used it yet.  I think it's time, so be prepared for some new projects that involve cut bottles, and if you have any ideas for me, I'd be happy to hear them!
Thanks for stopping by.......

    I'm intrigued to see what you have in mind for your bottle cutter, but slightly worried that it might just be another thing I have to add to my craft stash requirement list!!
