This year for Thanksgiving my sister-in-law requested I bring a bottle of wine to dinner. That’s easy enough, right? Well, I decided to make it a little more fun than just bringing a plain old naked bottle of wine!
Yes, my bottle is decked out in his finest Pilgrim Frock. It was super simple to make, and I think the finished product is pretty funny.
First gather your supplies (I used whatever I already had at home, so basically this was free for me): wine, scissors, glue gun, various felts, ribbons, and some sort of cylinder for the hat. I found out that the cap to the hair mousse I had was perfect.
Start by making the hat. Cut out three pieces of black felt: brim, sides of hat, and top of hat. Glue the sides and top to the cylinder.
The hat is done! Now on to the body. If I had had enough black felt I would have made the entire thing of felt, but I didn’t so I used some think black ribbon that I had on hand. First I made two large rings of ribbon (large enough to go around the bottle, but loose enough to be easily removable)…
Then I added a little detail to the collar and tried it on for size….
He is all ready for the party!! Are you ready? Are you cooking or just bringing something? Anyone else have it as easy as me? Sure I’ll bring the wine, and then I’ll be happy to drink it also!
