More than a year ago, our neighbor dropped off this bottle of champagne. Not only was the gesture a kind one, but I thought the gift looked unique and fun. Wanting to recreate the same presentation, but unsure how to, I didn’t open the bottle. Finally, I asked Andria if she would show me just what she did. She came by that evening and took less than a three minutes to help me through the steps. Pretty amazing that something so easy can look so festive.
Of course, it would be perfect for ringing in the New Year but think of all the other occasions to share. Celebrating a birthday, anniversary, new job, a promotion, new house or as a thank you, are just a few reasons.
Champagne & Flutes Holiday Gift
What you will need:
- Bottle of Champagne
- 2 long-stem champagne flutes or plain flutes
- Tulle in your choice of color, about 3 yards
- Faux flower, bow or streamer
Since I didn’t photograph the steps as I made this project with the champagne and fancy flutes, I had to search for something else to demonstrate the how-to. Sparkling grape juice and a pair of vintage glasses from the china cabinet to the rescue. Just remember, long stem flutes work and look the best.
Cut a piece of tulle about 9-feet long. Fold it in half to find the center and wrap it tightly around to neck of the bottle several times. There isn’t one way to do this, you just want to securely anchor the glasses to the bottle.
After a few wraps, tie a square knot.
Position one of the glasses upside-down and diagonally in the front of the bottle.
Make several wraps with the tulle around the stem and neck of the bottle in various directions. Be sure to use both pieces of the tulle so one side doesn’t get shorter than the other.
Keeping the tulle taught, position the second glass in the same manner, wrapping and securing with the tulle over and around the stem and bottle neck. It helps to have two pair of hands to accomplish this but I did it by myself without mishap. Tie once again with a square knot (right over left and left over right)
Finish with a bow and/or a flower or curling ribbon bow.
Pretty easy, right?
