Celebrate with Nikki ::: MUMMY Bottles!
Today's craft is one of those "anybodycandoit" simple crafts that looks GREAT, but only takes a short amount of time. Those are SO my kind of crafts
and I am guessing YOURS too! So if you are behind on the Halloween planning, no worries! Nikki has you covered! Take it away Nik!
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++Have a Halloween party coming up?
Or need a fun hostess gift for this spooky season?
Why not wrap up your wine bottle in mummy bandages?
inexpensive, and so, so easy.
Bottle of wine
approximately 1/2 yard cheesecloth/mummy wrappings fabric
low temperature glue gun
scissors or rotary cutter.
Start with a bottle of wine. I'm always happy when I see Bogle
Vinyard's Phantom (an old vine zinfandel, petite sirah, and old vine
mourvedre blend) hit the shelves. How perfect for Halloween!
Cut strips of the cheesecloth. Mine were about two inches wide, but
you really don't need to be precise. We're trying to evoke an ancient
mummy here. Not something that's been precicely engineered.
Use a dot of LOW TEMPERATURE hot glue to tack the end of a strip of
fabric to your bottle. I specify the low temperature glue gun because
there are a lot of holes in this fabric, and the glue WILL seep through
the fabric when you stick it on. You do not want to get high temp hot
glue on your fingers. Trust me. Owwww.
Then just wrap up the bottle. When you reach the end of a strip, just
use the glue gun to tack down the end and start another.
beverages for a Halloween party. And if a bit of red wine drips on the
bandages as you're pouring, so much the better.
