How to wrap a wine bottle in a festive, but easy way to give as a hostess gift.

While was away last week, Ed was invited to dinner by a friend of his.  He bought a bottle of wine to take as a hostess gift and asked me before I left if I could make the bottle look a bit more festive. He knows I always like to make something special as a thank you – like these Garlic Pretzels  or this loaf cake with festive wrap.

I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with the wine bottle and didn’t have any wine bottle gift bags, so I knew I would have to make my own in some way.  As soon as I walked into my studioffice and saw all the pretty, colorful, and festive gift wrap that I have been buying for a few dollars a roll at HomeGoods, I had an idea on how to make a festive wine bottle wrap.


How to Wrap a Wine Bottle With Gift Wrap

supplies needed:

  • Gift wrap
  • Ribbon – enough to wrap around the bottle a few times
  • Glue dots or glue gun and glue stick
  • Gift tag
  • Craft knife
  • Clear tape
  • Scissors

I found these all-occasion chalk board gift tags over at ellienee.com. You can download them for free there.

I saved the download on my computer so I could use it again.


1. Cut a piece of  gift wrap that is about 6 inches longer than the height of the bottle. The width should be enough to roll the bottle on until it is covered.

  • Lay the wine bottle on its side on top of the wrong side of the gift wrap.
  • Roll the bottle on the gift wrap and tape the edges to secure gift wrap around the bottle.
  • Tape the excess gift wrap on the bottom to the underside of the bottle.
  • Cinch the top of the gift wrap around the top with your hands to form fit it around the neck.

2.  Cut out the tag and ribbon.  I chose not to use it as a tag, but a label.


3. I made slits with a craft knife on the tag to thread the ribbon through.


4. Secure the ends of the ribbon using Glue Dots or hot glue on the back of the bottle.

  • Line up edges with the seam in the gift wrap.
  • Cut and then press with your fingers to make sure it is adhered and smooth.


5.  Wrap ribbon around the neck of the bottle using the Glue Dots to secure.

  • Using a pair of scissors, make vertical cuts 1/4-inch apart from each other in the excess gift wrap on the top of the bottle. It will splay out creating a festive topper.

  1. I have a lot of wine bottles and all the bottles I took into the wine rack. Last Sunday I was made some wine bottle crafts and put some flowers in this crafts. I should try to make this kind of craft,

  2. 6 inches is an enormous amount of paper. I tried and it looked like some circus thing… I’ll try much shorter–that is what your picture shows anyway.

  3. How cute and festive! I have a party to go to tomorrow and this just may be my hostess gift! Thanks for the idea!

  4. Why am I just now finding this amazing blog?!! I found you through a search for home staging tips. I’ve gone through several of your posts and I can’t get enough! Thanks for posting such realistic and budget friendly home decorating and project ideas.

  5. Your wrapping looks so amazing that I wouldn’t want to open it… but I would probably cave:) I am definitely going to hop over and check out My Colortopia, sounds interesting to a color fan like me. Have a fabulous time on your trip!!

  6. thanks so much for sharing about the snipping tool! I was unaware of it and I’m sure I will be using much in the future

  7. Thanks for sharing this great idea! Cute and simple, makes a great presentation. Thanks for sharing where to get the labels. Also introducing me to the snipping tool.
    How did you resize the tag after you snipped it from the others? Mine came out as a page.
    Again love follow your blog.

    1. Hi Linda – The default on most computer/printer configurations is usually a whole page. The software you use to print is where you would change the setting on the size you want the image printed. I use Photoshop Elements when I print images. When I click “print” a new window opens up where I can choose what size I want to print an image. If I didn’t do this – it would print out as a whole page. Take a look around your printer software program, you will probably find something similar.

  8. So cute – and thanks for the link to those adorable tags. By the way, I LOVE the snipping tool – have been using it for years for all kinds of things!

  9. Stopping by from TT&J- love the idea to make the hostess gift super cute- thanks for sharing. I love the way the chalkboard label pops on the pink paper. Sounds like the meeting you are headed to will be lots of fun with the awesome ladies you mentioned.

    1. Hi,We had lunch on the covered outdoor porch one day and it was very enjoyable. Another time they served our tasting upstairs on the roof terrace. I have seen it set up for a wedding, too – I know it was a beautiful event. We haven’t hiked along the Etowah, though, and I would love to do that on our next trip.
