A few years back, Ballard had these great demijohn vessels in their catalog. Remember?

wine bottle wrapped with rope
And here's how you do the rope wrap. It's similar to the fabulous glass float inspired Rope Lamp from last month! Since I found this on a blog that's no longer active, I'm posting the full tutorial here.

how to knot net around bottle
You need a bottle and some rope/jute. Tie a rope ring around the neck of the bottle. Cut six pieces of rope, each of them about three times the height of your bottle. Start with one loop, then tie all six pieces of rope evenly around the original loop. Take two pieces and knot them together as shown. Continue around the bottle until you get to the bottom. Make another rope ring for the bottom of the bottle (about half the size of the bottom), then tie all the pieces to it, using the same knot as earlier and trim all extra jute. I'm going to try this for sure!

hanging bottle vases
You could even use your Rope net bottles as hanging vases! It is similiar to the DIY hanging cylinder vase featured on JoAnn Crafts. Original source unknown.
