DIY Jute Wrapped Vase

I am sharing this post with Remodelacholic
I made a trip to my local Goodwill earlier this week (it's becoming a weekly affair), in search of a lamp that I still haven't found. However, I did find this little blue guy for like 69 cents I think.

When I originally saw him I thought he would fit perfectly in the restroom somehow since blue is in the color palette. Once I got home, I decided to try him in the entry way; the color palette is gray and yellow.

Although, there isn't much yellow represented yet. I'm kind of at a lost of where to begin with this small area. 

I normally stick with the matchy matchy but I have been wanting to break out my comfort zone and add random pops of color so this little guy was the perfect subtle pop. I just felt like I wanted to dress him up a bit. 

I have noticed a lot of glass figurines have twine wrapped around the neck of the vases. So, I decided to try it with him. 

I got little blue ready with some extra twine I had laying around.

I began wrapping first to decide whether I would love it or hate it. If I loved it, I was gonna hot glue the twine to blue.

I tied the twine in the back and decided I didn't even have to hot glue it. I am free to remove it whenever I want but as for now I will keep the twine wrapped around little blue's neck.

I think I still need some more rearranging here to create a layout I like. I finally like the layering on the left but feel the right side needs more TLC. Maybe I will add some books (which is another idea I have played around with on my end table). 

How would you decorate this space? Are you a matchy matchy or mix & match type of gal? Are you digging the twine neck on vases?
