Winter Wine Gift WrapDecember 8, 2011 at 7:25 am | Posted in Holiday Ideas | 7 Comments
I don’t know how to knit, but I adore all of the sweater-like sleeves showing up on home accessories, like this vase or this coffee cozy. Last weekend, I needed an easy idea for wrapping a bottle of wine to take to a party and realized that I could use a similar technique to give the bottle a festive, wintery look. And, it didn’t involve any knitting!
I started with an old sweater that I no longer wear.
I cut the sleeve, turned it inside out and tied the cut end with a piece of yarn.
I placed the wine bottle into the sleeve and tied the pom pom to the neck of the bottle (and attached a small gift tag).
