How to Make a Wine Bag Your Host Will Love

Heading out to a BYOB, or need an easy gift? Carry your wine in style with this cute DIY Red/White Wine Bag!

Giving wine is an easy, thoughtful gift. Why not present your bottle of wine in a unique package? With some felt and fusible web you can make your very own "White"/"Red" Burlap Wine Bag! The best part about this project is you get to pick your favorite font, cut it out of felt, and adhere it to a wine bag!

I went with a block font type since it had a nice clean look and was easy to cut out of my felt. I ended up doing 'White' on one side of my wine bag and 'Red' on the other, which covers all wine bases. This DIY wine bag would make a great wedding shower gift, or even a thoughtful housewarming gift!

How would you customize your wine bag? Let us know in the comments below.

Here's what you'll need:

  • Burlap Wine Gift Bag
  • Red Felt or White Felt (depending on the type of wine you will be giving)
  • Fusible Web
  • Scissors
  • Iron

Step 1: Pick out the font your want and print it out. Cut out your letters individually. Lay your letters on your felt and cut your piece of felt so it fits all of your letters.

Step 2: Place your piece of felt on your fusible web and trace it. After you trace your felt, cut it out.

Step 3: Put your iron on the recommended setting. Place your fusible web (Sticky side down) on your felt. Place your iron over your fusible web and keep it there until it is glued to your fabric. Let your fabric cool.

Step 4: Once your fabric is cool, remove the paper backing.

Step 5: Place your felt so the fusible web is facing down. Trace or pin your letters to your felt. Cut out your letters.

Step 6: Place your felt letters on the lower right hand side of your bag with the letters going up the side.

Step 7: Iron your letters to your bag.

You could also customize a wine bag using a different phrase and any font of your choice!

You could also use your wine bag to tote your favorite wine to a BYOB restaurant in style. No more plastic bags to house your wine!
