Wrapped Party Wine Bottle

Wrapped Party Wine Bottle

Tis the season for holiday house parties and you sure don’t want to go empty handed. Why not create a party wine bottle hostess gift you can make and feel good about giving? Let me show you two cute ways to decorate wine bottles for gift giving. First, let’s wrap a wine bottle for that special New Years party. This is a quick and easy way to decorate a wine bottle that only takes a few minutes to do.

Materials needed:
Wine bottle
Bowdabra bow maker, Bowdabra bow wire and wand
21″ wide mesh ribbon – 1 yard
Assorted decorative ribbons
Mesh tubing
Scissors
Ruler

Let’s start by making the bow first.
Cut an 18″ piece of Bowdabra wire, fold in half and insert into the Bowdabra, tucking ends under.

Next, cut 24 inches of 5 1/2″ wide mesh ribbon, bringing ends together forming loops. Grasp the center and place into the Bowdabra.

Then take 2.5″ wide wired ribbon (1yd or more), folding it to make a loop and press into the Bowdabra. Continue folding the ribbon back and forth until you have created at least four loops on each side.

Perfect Bowdabra bow

While the bows are still in the Bowdabra, thread the two loose ends of the bow wire through the loop and pull the wire tightly. Gently pull the bow out of the Bowdabra, separating the wires and tying in a knot in the back.

Next, place the wine bottle in the center of a yard of 21″ wide mesh ribbon, making sure the ends are curling under, as pictured.
