4 Easy Ways To Gift Wrap A Wine Bottle

Have you ever wanted to give a bottle of wine, but felt a little “lazy” compared to giving other gifts? I don’t think it’s so much the actual gift, but the wrapping is usually not as fun when giving a bottle of wine or alcohol.

Here are four fun ways to dress up a wine bottle and make it feel a little more special. All of these ideas are all really quick to complete which is a nice bonus too!


1. Dress up your wine bottle (literally!): OK, I can’t be the only person thinking wine bottle in a little hat and sweater is freaking adorable!

You can make one Elf-type outfit for the holidays, a reindeeror something adorable like this if you don’t want it to be holiday themed. If you are a fan of A Christmas storyyou will surely love this!

All of these are easy to store in a gift wrap so they can be reused the next time they give a wine gift too.


2. Wrap the bottle in a tea towel: This is an easy way to wrap your bottle in a sweet tea or towel.

Fold your towel in half over the wine bottle, folding up the bottom right and left corners to meet the body of the bottle.

Then fold the right side up, then the left side, and gather the top fabric together a tape. Tie the ribbon and you’re ready to give a gift!

I especially love this way of wrapping the wine bottle, because you are not only giving the wine itself, but also the tea towel it comes wrapped!


3. Decorate the bottle with an ornament: This is another way to give two gifts in one! Add a pretty bow or ribbon, but also tie on an ornament or holiday decoration for it so they can use it on their tree!

Bonus points if you match the color of your wine to the ornament. I used one car ornament, but i love it here croissant and this sausage decoration.


4. Wrap the bottle with a paper fan: This method might look fancy, but it’s actually really quick to make and looks adorable.

Simply place your bottle on a piece wrapping paper with a little extra coverage at the bottom and a lot extra at the top. Wrap the paper around your bottle so it is covered and tape closed.

Fold the bottom paper up so the bottom of the bottle is wrapped and tape closed. Then flatten the top tube of the paper over the stopper with your fingers.

Fold your paper back and forth like an accordion in 3/4″-like sections until you’ve folded down to the stopper.

Wrap a string etc decorative wire from top to bottom, cut the fanned paper in half. Use a bit of tape on the bottom and back to keep the string in place.

Vent the top and use tape to tape the two halves of your fan together (use either double sided tape or tape from the back). Tie your string into a bow and you’re done!


I love how pretty and fancy the wrapping looks, but it’s quick to make so you can make several at once for lots of gifts.

Maybe add an accessory like one electric wine opener (Emma loves hers) or a fun wine glass. Happy gift!
