A bottle of wine is always a thoughtful host gift, and I sometimes like to jazz up the presentation when I'm bringing wine to someone's house. This rustic wine bottle wrap is a simple DIY project that will wow your Thanksgiving host! All you need to get started are a new dish towel, some raffia, a few straight pins, wax paper, and of course, the wine bottle.
Lay the bottle out in the middle of the dish towel, leaving a few inches at the bottom.
Roll the bottle up tightly in the dish towel.
Secure the edge with the straight pins.
Fold up the bottom of the towel, and secure with pins.
Fold the top of the towel down around the neck of the wine bottle, and secure with the raffia.
Tie a pretty bow with your raffia!
Now, it's time to make your flower - cut several squares of wax paper and stack them.
Fold the paper accordion-style, into pleats.
Pinch the middle of the accordion, and secure with a raffia strand or a twist-tie.
Fan out the accordion pleats on both sides.
Slowly peel each sheet towards the center, and continue fluffing them out until your flower is created.
Secure the flower to the raffia bow and fluff out the petals and strands. And that's it! A quick and easy way to wrap your wine bottle! I've used this technique for dinner parties, bridal showers, and more, and would love to receive it on Thanksgiving!
