Jute Wrapped Vase

I found this idea on pinterest, and thought I'd give it a try.  I had an old, cheap vase just taking up space on top of the cabinets in my laundry room, and I had jute left over from another project (which I also need to post).  So, technically, this was little ditty was completely free!  Always a plus with any DIY project. 

So, here's what I started with:

I started on the bottom of the vase
...and i just kept wrapping and gluing.



...until it looked like this.  I think it turned out pretty good.
I found this similar style at Kirklands, on sale for $19.99


With the right shaped vase, you could even get away with using it as a candle holder.  Maybe?
So, whatcha think??  It was super easy, but definitely took some time.  I am loving all the jute-wrapped ideas on Pinterest.  I may have to try some of these:
