What to Bring to Your Next Party!

Create the perfect hostess gift with an elegant bottle scarf. Whether it's an end-of-the-year holiday gathering, a stuffy office party, dinner at the in-laws, or a housewarming party, this project is perfect for any occasion. Dress up gifts of wine, gourmet olive oil, or even a small perfume bottle with these handmade touches of flair.

Even after the bottle is empty, these gifts can be used again and again for years to come.

Handmade = Thoughtfulness

Your hostess will be impressed with this simple and affordable gift, and although it looks like you put a lot of time and effort into it, you can complete it in a couple of quick and easy steps and only needs a little drying time.

I love whipping a few of these up at one time and then adding different accent colors with dry brushing techniques to customize each one.
