I want to wind jute string round a glass vase. Do I put glue on the vase first?

Put the glue on the base first. Glue the end of the jute securely from the bottom up, adding glue as you go.

This is interesting as it seems no two people work this the same way. Some start at the top while others prefer beginning at the bottom.
Also, the glue of choice is different in each case. Some use Mod Podge while others use regular glue but it seems most prefer the glue gun. The instructions on YouTube are very good.

I found a hot glue gun works best. I wrap jute around glass jars and bamboo. The glue takes too long to dry. A hot glue gun works the best.


You can place the cord at the bottom or the top and add a dab of hot glue. Make one or two turns of the jute around the vase and add more hot glue. This is a quick and easy way to do your project.

Depends on your preference. I like to dab glue then wrap strung and dap some more throughout. I start from the top down actually because if there are ugly flaws i want it hidden at the bottom versus the top.
