I read recently that the most popular wedding season has now changed from summer to fall. Given the amount of fall weddings we have seen lately, I can believe it. Last weekend, the hubs and I had one of these fall weddings to attend. It was for my cousin/good friend from college, and I was pretty excited for the festivities.
Usually, if I don’t have time to shop, I opt for the always popular gift card as a wedding present. However, a friend of mine showed me a Pintrest Wine-Bottle-Poem-Basket that she used as a wedding present recently. Inspired, I decided to attempt to be crafty myself. The results turned out pretty amazing, if you ask me!
To create this gift, you need a few things:
– a basket (got mine at Michael’s)
– some filler (also Michael’s)
– ribbon (sensing a Michael’s theme…)
– variety of wine (any wine store, I picked ones with pretty multi-colored tops)
– poem tags (downloaded here… I’m not that creative!)
I printed the tags on colored card-stock because I didn’t have a colored printer. If I had fun scalloped scissors, I would’ve/could’ve used those for a prettier edge to the tags. However, I couldn’t locate my pair, so a regular straight edge worked just as well. I tied the tags to the bottles of wine using the gold ribbon, filled the basket with the filler, and arranged the bottles.
I added this decorative accent for some extra sparkle.
Voila! Instant beautiful wedding gift.
