Gnome Wine Bottle Gift Wrap


Welcome to the November Pinterest Challenge Blog Hop hosted by Alexandra @ EyeLoveKnots  If you aren't familiar with the Pinterest Challenge, it's a monthly event that challenges us to not just be pin hoarders, but to make it happen by creating a few of the pins we love! This month's challenge is Creative Gift Wrap!

Gnomes are so trendy and popular right now. You see them everywhere! And it's very fashionable to give wine as hostess gifts during any season but especially for the holidays. But who wants to show up with a plain wine bottle for a festive occasion?  Why not present something you've made that would be the talk of the party and a wonderful conversation piece just by combining the two trends -  by gifting a wrap a wine bottle as a gnome! 

A gnome wine bottle gift wrap is the perfect solution to a plain wine bottle gift and only takes about 10 minute to put together using a pair of socks. I was inspired to make one by this pin. It's a fun way to give two gifts in one - a pair of socks, one sock for the gnome hat while tucking the second sock into the sock hat for support, and of course, the wine!

Materials Needed:

·         Thick Christmas socks w/cuffs

·         A bottle of wine

·         DT Microfiber duster/mop pad

·         Round wood ball

·         Hot glue 

·         Scissors

·         Rubber band


1. Begin by cutting the backing of the microfiber pad (fur) to the width of your bottle, shaping into a beard with scissors.

2. Glue the fur to the bottle using a hot glue gun - holding it in place until glue dries.

3.  Stuff one sock with the other sock rolled up.


4.  Gather the tip of the stuffed sock and wrap a rubber band around the sock tip creating a ball. Adjust sock to shape and curve slightly at the top of the bottle.

5. Then pull the sock down over the neck of the wine bottle stopping at the beginning of the beard - making sure the heel is in the back.

6.  Glue wood ball onto the center of the fur for the nose. 

How cute is this! And created in ten minutes or less!
