Wine Wrapping Basics

Materials You'll Need:

  • Wrapping paper
  • Paper tissue (optional)
  • Scissors
  • Double-sided tape
  • Ribbon, string, or twine
  • Embellishments (optional)

Step-by-Step Guide to Wrapping a Wine Bottle

Step 1: Measure and Cut the Paper

You'll want to start by measuring the wrapping paper needed for your bottle. Place the wine bottle on its side and roll it along the paper until it's fully covered and make a small additional overlap. Make a mark and then cut the paper accordingly. For the height of the wrapping paper, you should aim to have about 3-4 inches of paper added to the bottle's height to cover the neck of the bottle.

Step 2: Secure the Paper Around the Bottle

Next, you'll need to use the double-sided tape to secure the wrapping paper around the bottle. Place a strip of tape along the edge of the wrapping paper and peel off the backing. Carefully wrap the paper around the bottle, making sure it's tight, smooth, and straight. Press firmly to secure the end of the paper with the tape.

    Step 3: Finish the Base

    Time to secure the base of the bottle! Push down the excess paper into the bottom of the bottle, creating even folds. Work your way around the base, pressing down each fold and smoothing them out. You can add a piece of double-sided tape to ensure the folds stay in place and keep the paper tight around the bottle's base.

    Step 4: Wrapping the Neck of the Bottle

    The neck is where you're going to give your bottle that beautiful finishing touch. Start by using your fingers to gently press the paper down to form a collar around the neck. Work your way around the bottle, creating even and neat folds. The goal is to create a pleated, fan-like look. Use a small strip of double-sided tape to keep the pleats in place.

    Step 5: Add Ribbon and Embellishments

    This is where you can get creative and show off your personal flair! Begin by cutting a piece of ribbon, string, or twine long enough to wrap around the neck of the bottle and tie a bow. Wrap the ribbon around the bunched paper at the neck of the bottle and tie in a simple, elegant knot or an eye-catching bow. For an extra special touch, add other embellishments like tags, wine charms, or dried flowers to complete the look.

Use holiday-themed ribbon or twine to make your gift extra festive and truly stand out.
