Do you need a cute, quick Halloween hostess gift (or something for a friend or neighbor)? This is the EASIEST idea (seriously, it takes less than 5 minutes). Just keep in mind to pick up a pair of striped children’s tights when you head to the costume store this month!
You will need:
– a bottle of wine (you can use any you have on hand, but if you want to do a Halloween themed variety like Vampire or Nevermore, that’s even more fun)
– a pair of child’s striped tights (any costume store should have them, I got this pair at Joann’s) *TIP: I like to buy these when I see them on sale and save them for the next year*
– a piece of ribbon, approximately 8 or 9 inches long
– a gift tag (I used one we sell in the store, but you could also trim down a plain index card or cut a shaped tag out of cardstock)
First, open the tights and use the scissors to cut off each leg.
Then place the wine bottle inside the leg of the tights.
Tie ribbon around the neck of the bottle and affix the gift tag. Trim the tights approximately 1-2″ above the top of the bottle, and turn the ends under towards the inside (to make the edge look more finished).
Simply sign the tag and leave this on the porch of a friend or neighbor for a spooktacular surprise, or take this to a Halloween party as a hostess gift. It’s seriously cute and takes less than 5 minutes. Seriously. That’s my kind of project!
