materials

  • Fabric, in two complementary patterns (Liberty of London Cotton Lawn Print Cotton Fabric #74653369, $36.95 a yd., bandjfabrics.com; B&J Fabrics Cotton Broadcloth Print Fabric #74648569, $15 a yd., bandjfabrics.com)

  • Fabric scissors

  • Bottle

  • Hot-glue gun and glue sticks 

steps

  1. Cut out a rectangle of fabric, with short sides long enough to wrap all the way around your bottle and long sides a little more than twice as tall as bottle. (We used a 14-by-28-inch piece of fabric to wrap a standard 750-milliliter wine bottle.) On a flat surface, lay fabric vertically, right-side down. Lay bottle on fabric so there are about 3 inches of excess below bottom of bottle, and about 13 inches above top. Wrap sides of fabric around bottle; secure with hot glue.

  2. Pleat fabric onto bottom of bottle, securing with hot glue, until it fits snugly around bottom and bottle sits flat.

  3. Twist excess fabric on top around top of bottle several times, covering bottle completely. Bring the length down and around bottle's neck, slipping the end under wrapped length to secure it. Trim end to desired length.

  4. Cut out a strip of second fabric for the tag; tuck into wrapped length.
