Christmas Wine Bottle Cover


Before you head to your next Christmas party, consider some holiday hostess gift ideas. Sure you can give a bottle of wine, but why not create a Christmas Wine Bottle Cover to go with it? This is a fun and festive way to say thank you.

Christmas Wine Bottle Cover


  • 1/3 yard fabric
  • Ribbon
  • Wine bottle
  • Scissors
  • Pins
  • Sewing Machine with coordinating thread
  • Iron & Ironing Board
  • Measuring elements
  • Fabric marker or chalk


  1. Measure your wine bottle. Most of my wine bottles are 9.5” to 10” in circumference (3” diameter) and 12” tall. These instructions are written for the aforementioned sized wine bottle. If your wine bottle is a different size, please adjust accordingly.
  2. Cut your fabric. Cut one piece of circular fabric with a 4” diameter. Cut a second piece of rectangular fabric 12” wide by 13.5” tall.
  3. Finish the top edge. Using your iron, press the top of the fabric (side that is 12” wide) 1/4” and then 1/4” again. Top stitch in place. When you have completed this step, your rectangular fabric should measure 12” X 13”.
  4. Sew sides together. Holding the right sides together, sew the long edges (the side that is now 13” long) with a 1/2” seam allowance.
  5. Sew the bottom. With right sides together, pin in place the circular bottom fabric to the bottom of the wine bottle cover. Turn inside out so that the right side is now visible.
  6. Insert wine bottle. Finish by tying a ribbon around the neck of the bottle.
  7. Optional: Add embellishments and/or grommets at the top to turn the cover into a wine bag.

I really like this idea because giving a bottle of wine is great, but a dressed up or hidden bottle is excellent. You let people open it up to see what year and what flavor it is, so they are opening a gift not just receiving one. Great holiday post!
