A day late and a dollar short

Today I went to enter my "Rosette" project into The Paper Variety's Challenge. I soon realized I was a day late and a dollar short...isn't that how the phrase goes?  Anyways, I still wanted to share with you my project because I think it is fun and you could potentially use it as a Valentine decoration if you wanted.

 All I did was take a Jones Soda ....if you can't tell I'm obsessed with Jones Soda a's another project I I don't drink pop all the time but if I'm going to I want a Jones!..Anyways, you could take any bottle..I actually wrapped that bottle with macrame yarn (if that is what it's called, forgive me for not knowing the technical term) You may wonder what I'm doing with a huge ream of Macrame yarn...well, my in-laws were helping my grandma in-law clean out her garage and they said "You're crafty. I bet you could find some way to use this HUGE ream of yarn!" So I did!  You could use regular yarn if you don't have a HUGE ream of macrame yarn lying around! ha!  I just hot glued it at the bottom and wound it around and hot glued along as I went.

Once I was all done my project looked like this:

I didn't like the looks of it and thought it needed a little bling! So, I added a rosette.  The tutorial I followed was Creations with Christina's.   Here's a close up:

Here it is altogether! Happy little flower in it's happy little vase!

Hope you're having a super day!
Happy Crafting
