This morning I recreated a beautiful Restoration Hardware vase/candleholder. Their version was $68-$98. I made mine with a glass jar I found at Michael's yesterday for $3.99 and a spool of twine I found at Lowe's for $4 and some change. And it only took about an hour to make. Easy Peasy!
Here is a more in depth tutorial - click here.

Here is how I made it. Find a glass jar in the right size you need.
Find twine or an angry looking rough yarn.
Last year, I was a bit scarf crazy and I bought some of those little plastic knitting thingies to make it easier than those knitting needles. Trust me when I say they are easier. With knitting needles I always somehow added a row at the end of each line. The first scarf I made looked like it was a tent.
I used a woven loop. I don't know what it is called, but if you guys want I can post a little tutorial on how to do it. Let me know.
And you just keep repeating the pattern and looping until it grows from this...
To this! Then you wrap it around the glass jar, loop the twine through the ends.
I looped back down to hide the seam.
Then you have a finished piece.
