Tis the season when we get invited to holiday parties or cozy dinners with friends or relatives to celebrate the season. When attending these events you most likely will bring a hostess gift of a bottle of wine.
If you do plan on bringing a bottle or two of wine, here are two very simple, yet cheery ways to give the gift of a bottle of wine that don’t even require gift wrap or a gift bag.
All a wine bottle needs to make it have “present presence” is a little bit of pretty ribbon tied around the neck and a gift tag… and for holiday giving, perhaps a few jingle bells that will make the gift of wine sound just as festive as it looks.
How to Tie Ribbon and a Gift Tag Around a Wine Bottle
I used velvet ribbon for my hostess gifts of wine. Any ribbon can be used, but 1/2″- 1″ wide ribbon works well.
SIMPLE RIBBON & GIFT TAG: Cut a piece of ribbon to approximately 12″ long. Tie loosely around the neck of the wine bottle. Punch a hole in the top of a gift tag and thread it on the ribbon, then tie a knot in the ribbon. Trim ends of ribbon.
RIBBON & JINGLE BELLS: Cut a piece of ribbon to 10″ long. Use florist wire to tie jingle bells to the end of the ribbon or if ribbon is narrow, thread it through the top of the jingle bell and tie a knot to attach a bell to each end of the ribbon.
Wrap the ribbon around the neck of the wine bottle and use two rolls of clear tape, two dots of hot glue or a glue dots under each end of the ribbon to attach the gift tag.
