  2. Apply double-sided tape around the bottle, as shown in picture 4.

  3. Remove the double-sided tape and firmly wrap the rope around the bottle until you reach the top, see pictures 5 and 6; the vase is almost ready.

  4. Cut three pieces of rope, each 12 inches long and make a braid, you will need three of these braids, picture 7.

  5. Paste two rope braids to the top of the vase and one at the bottom, picture 8.

  6. Cut at least 10 pieces of rope, each 1.5 inches long, picture 9.

  7. Make a one-inch wide coil from the rope, paste it on the vase and arrange the rope pieces around it in a circle to form the flower, see pictures 10 and 11.

  8. You can leave it as is or brush the rope pieces of flower to give it a fluffy look, picture 12.
