Easy DIY Wine Bottle Gift
This easy DIY wine bottle gift is nice and elegant and can be displayed almost anywhere in the home. You don’t always need to gift the most expensive bottle of wine, a nice bottle and a thoughtful DIY wine holder that you make yourself will be received very well. This wine bottle gift is a perfect housewarming gift, wedding gift, or gift for another special occasion or holiday. Let’s head to the workshop and make this easy DIY project.
Easy DIY Wood Wine Holder Gift
- One 14″ piece of 2×6
- One 20″ piece of 5″ wide burlap
- Wood stain
- Foam brush
- Paper towels
- 2 Feet of twine
- Upholstery nails
- Gorilla super glue (or any all purpose glue)
- Optional: Paint for monogram
Begin by cutting your 2×6 to 14″ and sand the wood thoroughly using an orbital sander, or a piece of sand paper. This will be the base of your wine bottle gift, wine bottle holder.
Choose a drill bit slightly bigger than the width of the twine yo’re using.
Drill two holes at the top of the board, one near each corner. These holes will be where the twine is fed through your wine bottle gift.
Select a nice wood stain for your wine bottle holder gift and apply the stain using a foam brush. Apply the stain evenly and allow it to sit on the piece for several minutes. The longer you let the stain penetrate the wood, the deeper and richer your color will be. You can apply more than one coat of stain to reach your desired result. Just follow the instructions found on the container of your wood stain.
Now that you’ve allowed your stain to dry, it’s time to string your twine through the wine bottle holder. String the twin through so you have one clean line of twine across the front of the holder. (I suppose that means you need to pick a front and back side)…
The last step is to wrap the burlap around the bottle of wine. Not too tight though, you need to be able to slide the bottle in and out of the burlap. Fold the excess burlap over, using glue and upholstery nails to secure the burlap in place, as seen below. Your wine bottle gift is almost done!
Now your wine bottle holder should look similar to this.
Optional: Add a monogrammed letter. Stencil or paint a letter below the wine bottle to personalize it!
