My goal was to create a few simple pieces that would work together to make a cohesive, warm & cozy Thanksgiving table. Each project was designed to take less than an hour. I first made the Wine Glass Charm, then a Holiday Votive, and last week I showed you how to make a Thanksgiving Table Runner. In continuing with our theme, here’s a simple way to add decor and mark your wine bottles.
- Thread & sewing machine
- Leather cord
- Leaf Template (Google “leaf template” and choose 1!)
- Crafter’s Glue or Craft/Button Thread & Needle
- Cut 2: 3 ½ x 3″ pieces of burlap for each wine bottle
Cut 2: 9″ strips of leather cord for each wine bottle.
Sew a seam all the way around your burlap, just to keep it from unraveling.
Fold top over ½” on each piece. Sew a seam close to the edge.
Thread leather cord through top of each piece of burlap.
Cut 1 leaf out of felt. If desired, hand embroider “Merlot” or “Pinot”, etc., as appropriate on leaf.
Attach leaf to outside of burlap by either a) using Crafter’s glue OR b) hand stitch it together.
Tie leather cords together on the sides and slip over wine bottle.
Project 4: Complete! Bring on the food.
