Yarn Wrapped Jars

Here is a picture of the container. It was a candle that I cleaned the wax out of. I'm obsessed with using candles as jars.
Here is a picture of the supplies you need. All you'll need is some type of bottle, jar, or container (I suggest glass), yarn in any color you prefer, and glue. I used good ol' Elmer's glue.
Start by applying a little bit of glue to the container. You want enough to get the yarn attached, but not too much or else you'll have a gluey mess.
Attach the yarn. I didn't cut my yarn yet. I just unwrapped a lot of yarn at a time because I didn't know how much I would need.
I did this craft on a surface that allowed the glass to turn with ease. This allowed me to use two hands to make sure the yarn stayed even. I added a little more glue at a time as I went up. You need to be careful and check for large gaps. If you see any or you see the yarn starting to become uneven you can lightly move the yarn up or down to correct it.
Then when you get the end I cut off the yarn and put a dot of glue that I rubbed in like what I did with the Thread Spool Wine Corks.
Then I put my supplies back in! Sorry for the spools. I didn't have enough clothes pins to keep them standing up straight.
Ta da!
