Sticking with the theme of easy, ‘Do-It-Yourself’ hostess gifts, the easiest of all might have to be the monogrammed wine bag. You’re most likely going to take wine to a party anyways, so why not make your bottle the most festive of the bunch?! The host will be so impressed and appreciative of your thoughtfulness–and you’ll win at hostess gifting.
- Plain wine bag [I used these]
- 3″ Letter stencils
- Painters’ tape
- Acrylic craft paint
- Paint dobber or sponge brush
First, I slid a legal sized envelope in the wine bag to prevent the paint from bleeding through the bag onto the other side. You could also use a folded piece of paper or whatever you have lying around the house. I then positioned the stencil where I wanted it, and secured it in place with some tape.
I then dobbed the paint over the stencil a few times to ensure a solid coat. If you don’t like the ‘stenciled’ look of the letter, after you pull the stencil off, you can go back with a small paint brush and fill in the spaces to make a ‘full’ letter.
