things you'll need

Step One

Heat up the glue gun and apply a few small dots of glue to the top of your bottle.  Push end of wool into glue and wrap around bottle once before applying another small dot of glue.  Repeat this process approx 4 times to ensure wool is well secured.

Step Two

As you are winding the wool around the bottle gently press the wool up with your thumb nail to ensure layers are nice and tight.  About every 4 to 5 turns.

Step 2

Step Three

Continue wrapping the wool around bottle, applying small dots of hot glue in random places as you go.  This will help to ensure the wool doesn't move up the bottle.  You may need to do this more often on curved parts.

Step Four

As you get to the end it is easier if you place the bottle upside down on a tea towel to finish off.  As you get to the final stages of wrapping increase the amount of small glue dots to secure well, with one final glue point press wool in well and cut.

Tips:

*It's easier to spin the bottle rather then the wool

*Make sure you keep the tension on the wool as you wrap.

*Leave any sticky residue from labels on bottle, this will actually help the wool to stick in places.

*Don't worry if you do have sections where the wool has moved, that's all part of the charm.
