Hostess Gift Idea: Wrap a Bottle of Wine Like a Pineapple!
‘Tis the season!
Wine always makes a great hostess gift, but how to make it stand out without spending tons of money on a pricey bottle… that is the question.
The answer? Design consultant and gift wrap guru Alton DuLaney has a clever tropical-inspired wrap. After all, a pineapple does symbolize warmth, friendship, and hospitality!
1. To get started, lay a sheet of yellow tissue paper flat. Then, using a ruler, draw angled, cross-hatched lines to create diamond shapes on the paper.
2. With the diamond-side facing down, spread green tissue paper on top, layering the corners of the paper. Lay your bottle on the green paper, and roll it up until the top of the bottle is covered.
3. Set the bottle upright in the middle of your yellow paper, and gather it around the bottle. Tie around the bottle’s neck with a piece of green ribbon and fluff out the ends.
Ta da! Your bottle of wine is now a tropical treat!
