Here’s a cheap and creative way to dress up a hostess gift this holiday season!

Do it yourself wine bottle sweaters for the holidays! We got this idea from a catalog that featured wine bottles snuggled up in some cute “ugly” Christmas sweaters.

What you need: felt, thread, buttons, hot glue, a sewing machine, and whatever other decorations you can use to dress up your sweater (pom poms, ribbon, etc.). Oh, and of course a wine bottle that needs some outerwear. We had some fun using all of the different stitching options on the sewing machine to decorate the red stripes on the gray sweater. Be creative!

Vicky Barone Wine Bottle Cover Template

Here’s a PDF template you can use to get your sweater to fit just right! It’s sized so that you can do the stitching on the outside where it is visible (we think it’s super cute like that!). If you’d like to hide the stitching, you can extend the template a quarter of an inch or so, but be warned that the felt will be very bulky when you flip it right side out after it’s sewn.

These are great to have on hand to fancy up a bottle of holiday spirits you might be sharing with friends and family this season. They also look great on the kitchen counter as Christmas decor if you can’t seem to part with them!
