How to wrap a wine bottle in 5 easy steps


Yes, you can just pop a bottle of wine into a gift bag and call it a day…or you can wow the lucky recipient with a beautifully wrapped bottle that will make Martha Stewart proud. Let’s do it! 

The materials: You’ll need wrapping paper, a bottle of fine wine, scissors, clear tape, a ribbon or bow for decoration and a sprig of your favourite greenery.


The method: 

  1. Lay the bottle on the wrapping paper and roll it until the paper overlaps itself. Cut the paper, leaving an inch or two of excess on one end.
  2. Place the bottle on the cut paper and roll it, ensuring the paper overlaps nicely. Secure the seam with clear tape.
  3. Twist the excess paper at the top, like a candy wrapper, and secure it with tape.
  4. Tie a ribbon or bow around the bottle’s neck for a festive look. Pop a sprig of lavender, rosemary or any of your favourite greenery behind the ribbon.  
  5. Make sure the wrapping is secure and looks neat. Adjust the ribbon and any creases for a polished appearance.
