Wine bottle art – Christmas

Hi all,

It’s beginning to feel (or maybe  even look) like Christmas where you are so I was inspired to make another wine bottle decoration.

Green bottle for Christmas 2014

Supplies you will need:

  • Green wine bottle
  • Red burlap (5 1/2″ wide)
  • Printed burlap ribbon (2 1/2″ wide)
  • Tan jute
  • Christmas pick (holly berries/leaves for this bottle)
  • 1/2″ wide Scrappy Tape*
  • Tombow glue
  • Hot glue gun

Putting it all together:

  1. Wash the bottle in soapy water and remove any labels.   Let dry.
  2. Using the red burlap, measure enough to go around your bottle and overlap in the back about inch or so.
  3. Using the Scrappy Tape (see below for more information on Scrappy Tape)  place it on the short edge of the red burlap then adhere the burlap to the bottle.
  4. Put Scrappy Tape on the other end, wrap the bottle tightly and secure overlapping the burlap.
  5. Measure a piece of the printed burlap ribbon to fit around the bottle and overlap about an inch.
  6. Put the Scrappy Tape on the short end and then starting at the back of the bottle center the ribbon on the red burlap
  7. Put Scrappy Tape on the other end and wrap tightly around the bottle and secure to the back.
  8. Next wrap the tan jute around the top of the bottle as shown. For this I used the Tombow glue. Start even with the back seam of the burlap and wrap securing it at the top, again at the back of the bottle.
  9. Heat up the glue gun and while it is heating up figure out the placement for your Christmas pick.  Cut off excess wire if necessary.
  10. Using the glue gun use a fairly generous amount of glue and attach the pick.  Allow to dry for a few minutes.

Quick and easy and fun to make!

*What is Scrappy Tape?

Scrappy Tape comes on a roll of 30 feet in various sizes ranging from 1/8″ to 1 1/2″.  This tape is a paper thin, double-sided tape and it is very strong. I use it on cards, scrapbook pages, and 3-D projects when I want to have a strong hold on the project I am working on.   It is sold online at scrapbookpal.com. I have all the widths because they were sold in a bundle for an awesome price a few months back!  You might think what would I use 1 1/2″ tape size for but I have actually used that quite often for panels on cards where I needed extra hold.  You can also just use it for your every day projects as well.  30 yards can go a long way!
