Wine Bottle Tote Gift Idea

It’s December, and that means that your social calendar is probably chock full of holiday parties, Christmas cookie exchanges, and festive dinner parties. If that sounds like your December schedule, then you may want to try out today’s easy craft project!

No one likes to show up empty-handed to any of these little get-togethers, so we came up with an inexpensive project that will really wow your hostess and fellow guests.

These wine bottle tote bags. They’re not only adorable, but they’re very simple to make. Plus, we like the fact that you can make many of these ahead of time and have them stockpiled and ready for your long-list of upcoming parties.

Bottle-of-red-wineAll you have to do is buy a bottle of wine (probably the most costly supply for this project), dress it up with this wine bottle tote, and head on out to party it up!Plain-Wine-BagWe ordered these wine totes on Amazon, but we’ve seen these around various craft stores so just keep your eyes open.Stickers-on-bagCheers-StickersThen we used our new Silhouette Portrait to create the “Cheers” font. Like we said in this post, we’re still Silhouette beginners so we’ll direct you over to their awesome Youtube channel for tutorials. For this project, we wrote out the word “Cheers” in a few different fonts and then printed it on premium vinyl. We thought about just using regular paper but figured that a sticker would give us the cleanest lines when we spray painted.

If you don’t own a cutting machine you can use stickers to write your message or create your own shape. Krylon-Spray-PaintDIY-wine-bagCheers-Spray-PaintedFor the final step, we stuck the words onto the tote and sprayed a light coat of spray paint over and around the sticker. After letting the paint dry, we peeled it off, and boom…those boring totes were instantly personalized and ready to par-tay.Cheers-Christmas-GiftNow, all we need to do is pick up a few new bottles of wine and we won’t have to worry about buying hostess gifts all season long. I think we should cheers to that!
