“Merry & Bright” Crafted by Carol for Terri O

Instructions:

1. Set wine bottle on a flat surface and place paper around it. Not all bottles are blown equally, your paper will probably overlap on small bottles and it might have a small gab with larger ones. Decide where you want to cut or tear the paper and do so.

2. If you are adding a  brooch, go ahead and carefully pin it to the paper and tape across the pinback on the back side of the paper for extra security.

3. Glue on paper.

4. Tear or cut paper for the throat of the bottle and glue on.

5. Embellish with ribbon.

Project time is about 10 minutes per bottle once you have chosen your paper and embellishments.
