How about a Christmas craft to get your juices flowing?

Have you finished your bottle of wine yet? When you do, wash it out very good and allow it to dry.. You can remove the paper around it while it’s wet or leave it if you wish.

Take a piece of burlap. Easy to get at any store. Fit it around the middle of the bottle and cut, leaving just enough to over lap the other end. Using hot glue, fasten the burlap in pace being careful not to leave lumps. I like to apply the glue to the very top and bottom of the burlap, so as not to leave lumps in the middle portions.

Take your favorite decorative Christmas ribbon and cut it to fit around the top and bottom edges of the burlap. Glue in place just as you did the burlap.

If you aren’t artistically inclined, take a Christmas stencil of your choice along with some fabric paint. Place the stencil where you want the picture to be on your burlap and paint it onto the burlap. This can also be done prior to gluing the burlap to your bottle.

You are ready to insert small battery operated lights inside your bottle and enjoy. I hope you all have a very merry Christmas.
