Thanksgiving Hostess Gift: How to Gift Wrap a Bottle

A wonderful thanksgiving hostess gift is wine, sparkling cider, or sparkling grape juice. Looking for a creative way to wrap the How to Gift Wrap a Bottlebottle before giving it as a gift? I purchased little girl’s tights (size 7-10) at the Dollar Store. One leg, of the tights, is the perfect fit for holding a bottle of wine or sparkling juice. Add a ribbon, bows, and other embellishments for an elegant hostess holiday gift.

Materials Needed:

  • Little Girls size 7-10 Tights
  • Bowdabra
  • Bowdabra Bow Wire
  • Beauty 1.5? Satin Ribbon
  • Orange 7/8? Satin Ribbon
  • Tangerine 7/8? Satin Ribbon
  • Saffron 5/8? Satin Ribbon
  • Small Pinecone
  • Raffia or something similiar
  • Wine or Sparkling Juice


1. Begin with a wine bottle or sparkling juice bottle and inexpensive tights.
