Supplies You'll Need

1. Wrapping Paper

Choose a wrapping paper that fits the occasion and your recipient's taste, whether it's a festive design, a unique pattern or a simple, elegant color. Make sure it's sturdy enough to handle wrapping a bottle, as flimsy paper may tear.

2. Scissors

You'll need sharp scissors for precise cutting of the wrapping paper and ribbon. Blunt scissors can cause jagged edges and make the process more difficult.

    3. Double-Sided Tape

    Double-sided tape is ideal as it creates a seamless finish on the wrapping paper without any visible adhesive. If you can't find double-sided tape, regular clear tape will do.

    4. Ribbon

    Choose a ribbon that complements the wrapping paper and is wide enough to create a statement bow. Satin or grosgrain ribbons work exceptionally well.

    How To Gift Wrap A Wine Bottle

    Step 1: Cut the Wrapping Paper

    Place the wine bottle on the paper, ensuring it's long enough to wrap around the bottle with a 1-inch overlap. To estimate paper height, measure to the base of the bottle's neck and add 2 inches. Cut the paper accordingly.

    Step 2: Wrap the Bottle

    Place the bottle on the paper with its bottom aligned with the lower edge. Wrap the paper around the bottle, keeping it centered. Secure the paper with double-sided tape along the edge of the overlapping paper.

    Step 3: Pleat the Paper at the Top

    Starting at the seam, make a small pleat (around 1 inch) and continue pleating around the bottle, evenly spaced and angled towards the neck. Secure each pleat with double-sided tape to maintain its shape.

    Step 4: Fold and Secure the Top Paper

    Gently press down on the pleated paper so it hugs the wine bottle's neck. Fold the excess paper at the neck down inside the pleats, covering the bottle's cap. Use double-sided tape to keep it in place.

    Step 5: Add Ribbon and Bow

    Wrap the ribbon around the bottle, positioning it over the pleated paper, and tie a knot at the back. Create a statement bow on the front and trim any excess ribbon to your desired bow size.
