DIY Wine Bottle Floral Toppers
Wine is an easy gift to keep in the house for last minute visits to friends and family. Creating a floral wine topper is a creative way to give your bottle more presence, and make it stand out from the others. These also make great wedding or party favors.
Choose to gift your personal favorite wine, for an added touch of thoughtfulness. I love this yummy (and inexpensive at about $12) Root: 1 Cabernet Sauvignon. It’s made in Colchagua Valley, Chile, by winemaker Sergio Hormazabal. This rich red wine is a mix of black currant, mocha and chocolate notes – an exceptional match with full-flavored cheeses, pastas, steaks and chocolate.
Go to a local craft store, like Michaels or AC Moore, and select an assortment of silk flowers and ribbon to create your toppers. Be open to experimenting with other items in the flower aisle, like faux fruits, olives, branches and leaves.
Tie the ribbon around the neck of the wine bottle in a double knot to secure it. Use a hot glue gun to arrange and adhere your floral pieces to the ribbon.
Let it dry and, Voila! You have a beautiful gift to present.
