How to Make a Demijohn

Today I'm attempting to make a knock off project
of a beautiful demijohn.

I was the macrame champion of 1977. Not really but I did macrame all day long back then.
Here's a great antique bottle that is going to my next attempt at macrame.

First I wrapped the waxed string around the spout about 5 times. Then I hitched on about 10 lengths of string, they should be about three times the length of the bottle. 
Make square knots tying together 2 pieces of string, one from the left and one from the right. Move over to the next two pieces, and keep going around the bottle.

Make your knots farther apart as you get to the wider part of the bottle.

When you get to the bottom, pull your knots tight again.

And end your pieces of string with tight knots.

This was really not that hard to do, especially
if you were the macrame queen of 1977! 

Give it a try! 

And check out this Antique Demijohn I found at a 
thrift store!
