If you remember my earlier Quick N Easy Prima Bead Hostess Gift project, I have another super quick and easy DIY project to share today that helps wrap that project up. And who doesn’t love to give and receive gifts in a pretty package? …ps…make sure you read all the way to the end for a chance to win a fabulous gift package!
This was probably one of the fastest projects I’ve ever put together. I used a fabulous raw burlap wine bag from Canvas Corp and dressed it up with some stunningly gorgeous May Arts Ribbon. I love the look of burlap in almost any form and I’ll admit I love the way burlap smells. Weird, huh? While the bag could have done a great job on its own, I decided that some shimmery ribbon from May Arts ribbon would dress it up for the holidays and make this a make it a complete hostess gift.
I used a 2/8” silver ribbon to dress the top with no sewing. I just glued it directly to the burlap.
For the bottom bow, I glued a strip of 1 1/2” metallic ribbon directly around the bottom. I used my super easy Craft-Dee Bowz to create this multi-looped bow. It took just a few seconds to wrap and tie the bow with an extra minute to fluff it out. Again, I just glued this directly to the silver ribbon strip. All together, I think it came out really great, but most of all, it was another Quick N Easy DIY gift project for the holidays.
