I created this wine package to give at holiday times to close friends and as hostess gifts. To make them, I went to the grocery store and picked out a bottle of wine, choosing a bottle color that would match my label – and of course a wine that I liked too! Then I soaked off the original label overnight in warm soapy water, dried the bottles and put my personalized labels on them. I also peeled off the plastic hood and replaced it with a color to match (be sure you do this before you put the new labels on). I had ordered more labels than I would need, so the extras I cut in strips and placed on the neck and back of the bottles for added decoration. I also had matching coasters made and put about 6 of them in white organza bags and tied them to the neck of the bottle.
Our friends loved them! At first, I think they didn’t want to open them because they were so pretty! Everyone at the parties we went to picked them up and thought they were so unique, they wanted to make some themselves.
In the past years I have made other holiday labels for wine, using different styles. The wreath style is nice, but it was all consumed last year so I don’t have a picture! Next year, I will make one with our photo.
