How to easily wrap a wine bottle

how to easily wrap a wine bottle

I learned a really cool technique for wrapping bottles at the momtrends event. It was so perfect and so easy that I had to share it with you guys!! The best part about it is that you can do it for the holidays, dinner parties, birthday parties you name it!

1) lay the bottle flat on its side, make sure there is at least an inch left on the bottom and 2-4 inches on the top

2) tape wrapping paper to one side and roll tightly, when you reach the end of the wrapping paper use 2 pieces of double sided tape to close.

3) on the bottom of the bottle cut slits into the one inch of extra paper.

4) tape pieces down individually.

5) stand the bottle up and smooth the edges into a “v”. Turn the bottle around and tape the pieces closed (with double sided tape)

6) make sure the top is even and fold it over, toward the front, tape.

7) use hole puncher to punch 2 holes. Even centered.

8) grab ribbon and you can choose to get fun here, tie a bow, tie a knot. The simplest way is to cut your ribbon ends at a diagonal so you can slip them back into the holes if necessary.

9) wala! You have got a perfectly wrapped wine bottle.

..or you can just throw it in a decorative bag like I always do!! I’m so lazy when it comes to wrapping. I love what you did here and I may even try it because it truly looks so simple…and a lot better then a bag!! Very clever.

I totally pinned this, because I always have trouble wrapping wine bottles and usually just buy the wine wrapper sleeves when in doubt, but you made it look so easy and I may need to try. Thanks Nellie!! πŸ™‚

Hahaha!!! This is awesome Nellie. Like Allie, I usually use a wine bag, but is there ever one when I need it? I’m always having to make a quick stop at the store to find the appropriate one. But I have plenty of wrapping paper at home.lol. Never even thought about wrapping.
PS. You know I’ve been looking forward to Thursday’s post since you hinted at it πŸ™‚ Great PR

Love this! It’s super cute… and looks better than the quickie job they normally do at the liquor store.

If anyone is kind enough to buy me a bottle of bubbly don’t even worry about wrapping it! I love to wrap gifts, so this is a good alternative to just putting the bottle in a gift bag or wine box.

Me too! thats why I love this method so much!

I take the lazy way out and put it in a decorative bag! I am challenged enough by wrapping boxes!

Good to know on those days I’m in a bind with no gift bag on hand.

We take to parties a lot but we normally just hand it over sans wrapping. Classy, I know!

Seriously, so genuinely helpful! I am going to get my dad and his wife a nice bottle of wine for Christmas and now I can actually wrap it! :)-Ashley

…and now you will slap an address label on that wrapped wine and send to my location. Yes???

I will overnight it Josie!

This is brilliant! I have totally wrapped bottles of whiskey before. If that sounds strange, my dad LOVES Crown Royal and every Christmas, someone has to get it for him so he can have a bottle at his little bar. Usually it comes in a purple box but I’ve had to wrap it before when it was loose and it did NOT look like yours.

Nellie December 8, 2013 - 10:08 pm

That doesn’t sound strange at all, it actually makes gifting for him a ton easier!

This looks easy! I always find something hard about a project that looks this easy online. I could definitely see myself bringing more gifts like this in the future to friends’ houses, but now I don’t have to just slap a bow around the neck! Haha! I’m going to pin this for later. πŸ™‚

Thanks Brittnei! I love this fun way of wrapping wine bottles.

What a great idea – I usually buy the little wine gift bags or cylinders but this would be more convenient and cheaper – thanks for sharing!!!

Nellie December 8, 2013 - 9:45 pm

No problem, I think its a fun twist for sure!

Ilene December 5, 2013 - 7:04 pm

I never thought to hold punch the top and fit a ribbon through it. Looks so pretty that way!

Reply
Nellie December 8, 2013 - 9:42 pm

I think that is my favorite part actually!

Leslie December 5, 2013 - 10:41 pm

That is so cute! Most likely we’ll be giving our parents wine for Christmas, so I just might be using this tutorial instead of using the same old wine gift bags. Thanks for the tip!

I don’t bother wrapping a wine bottle. My wrapping skills are minimal! I end up just getting one of those wine gift bags and call it a day. Looks easy though!

Nellie December 8, 2013 - 9:41 pm

ha I hear you, I am a fan of wrapping so I would do this all day πŸ˜‰

This looks easy and fun but I want my bottle unwrapped and ready to be tapped dry lol. I saw the post this morning on instagram from people at the wrapping event wrapping a bike never saw that before.
