My summer ideas and the bottle net

I believe that my home should change together with the seasons. Because of that I've made some summer decor that helps to bring the summer inside. I found some good ideas ( as usual )on :

I really liked those golden shells so I made something similar, easy :) A bit of gold spray paint, a few shells I had  lying around, some beach sand and a big jar, that's all it took.

Here are my other ideas:

Do you like the bottle? Hope so :) because here comes the tutorial for the net.

You need a bottle (I love the green color of mine) and some jute. Wrap a piece of jute around the neck of the bottle.

Cut six pieces of jute, each of them about three times the height of your bottle.

Tie a knot as shown below:

Tie all six pieces of jute evenly around the original loop:

Take two pieces of jute (one from the left and one from the right). The pictures show how to tie the knot: 

Continue around the bottle until you get to the bottom.

Make another ring about half the size of the bottom of the bottle: 

Tie all the pieces using the same knot as earlier and trim all extra jute. That's the end result:

 (I'm really surprised it turned out so even, I usually have problems with symmetry :P)
I used the same method for the baubles (

There's only one difference, you should start by making a hoop at the bottom of the christmas baubles and work your way up like you did with the bottle. Tie a knot at the top and you're done:

Have a nice day,
