I recently put together a shoot for gift wrap inspiration with Jenny Liu Photography, MaeMae Paperie and Calligraphos Ink. Everything turned out so lovely and I’m so excited that it’s featured on Style Me Pretty today, so be sure to check it out. The first post is already up here!
I thought I’d share with your our DIY Wine Bottle Gift Wrap project that is so easy, and so impressive, you just can’t not give it a shot! This year, I’m really into reusing old sweaters that are either lying in my closet collecting dust, or ready for the take at my local thrift store. Here’s a GREAT way to use those sweaters to wrap a bottle of wine, that turns one gift into two.
Wine Bottle Gift Wrap:
1 old sweater (I scour the thrift stores!)
2″-3″ of Fabric
Sewing Machine, or needle and thread!
Ribbon, yarn, gift tags etc… for embellishment
1. Once sweater is washed, start by inserting the wine bottle into the sleeve of the sweater. The sleeve should start just below the top of your wine bottle. Mark the sweater with length of your bottle, pull out the wine and cut the sweater sleeve off.
2. Place your bottle on the small square of fabric and trace a faint circle around the bottle. Give yourself an extra 1/4″-1/2″ outside of the bottle. Cut out this circle.
3. Turn the sleeve inside out and pin your fabric to the cut end of the sleeve. Sew together. Turn right side out and voila!
4. To complete, thread yarn through the sweater, or affix ribbon.

LOVE this! such a cute idea!
Fantastic idea! I think I’ll use the leftover sweater “body” to make a cozy pillow cover… hmm… the possibilities!
I almost bought one of these on Etsy yesterday! I never thought to use the sleeve of an old sweater, and I’m sure I have a ton I could use! I’m totally going to try this project…Thanks! amanda 🙂

Beautiful! I am glad I donated all my old clothes recently but I’m wishing I kept a few sweaters for projects like these! I guess I’ll head back to Goodwill to buy some!

What a great idea. I’m going to try it. Very Eco Friendly
hmmm… were is my old blazer? -)
alright – this is a little crazy but…where are those WHITE scissors from? I spend my whole life searching for white scissors, and alas, you have found them – will you tell?
Hahaha! I love it. There are from a local fabric store here in the OC, called M&L Fabrics. They were actually on sale. I got them for something like $7. Can you believe it?
I absolutely love these. Can’t wait to go home and clean out closets to make some of these for next Christmas. Thanks for sharing this great idea!
Beautifully done – thanks for sharing! I write a blog about gift wrapping (http://www.thegiftedblog.com) and always love seeing other people’s creative ideas.
Thank you for sharing – I’m off to take a look at Style Me Pretty!
