Tuxedo Wine Wrapper for Your Oscar Party

[additional-authors]
February 20, 2019

The nominees for Best Way to Present Wine as a Hostess Gift are: the paper or plastic bag it came in; a gift bag from the 99 Cents Only Store; a decorative bow on the neck; and this tuxedo wine wrapper. And the winner is … the tuxedo wine wrapper, of course. It’s what all the A-list wine gifts are wearing on the red carpet this season. 

What you’ll need:
White felt
Hot glue
Black felt
Red felt

 

1. At crafts stores, felt sheets come in standard 9-by-12-inch sheets, which is a perfect size for a typical wine or champagne bottle. Wrap a white piece of felt lengthwise around the bottle and hot glue together the ends of the felt. Fold down the top of the felt to create a collar, and hot glue it in place.

 

2. Fold a black piece of felt in half crosswise, and cut a triangle in the corner on the edge where the two halves meet, i.e., not the folded edge. This cut triangle will create the lapels for the tuxedo.

3. Wrap the black piece of felt around the bottle over the white “shirt” and hot glue the ends together to close the tuxedo jacket. Fold down the top of the felt as you did with the white felt to create the collar and lapels for the jacket. Snazzy!

 

4. Cut a bow tie shape out of red felt and hot glue it to the top of the shirt. By the way, you just won Best Party Guest.
