Simple hostess gift idea!!

I've been doing this for years and it applies to all seasons....instead of just bringing a bottle of wine to a friends home as a hostess gift, why not wrap it in a tea towel?? can use different towels and embellishments for each season or time of year....a favorite fabric works great too!!
Here are just a few ideas for fall....

I used twine and burlap ribbon for these...

I chose raffia to wrap this bottle of red!!

The winter holidays are a great time to use this many options of what to wrap your bottles with....
