Holiday Project: Wine Bottle Koozies

13 November, 2015

Wine Koozie Holiday Gift

For the Love of Vino

Today the Commonthread team would like to discuss something very serious with you. Please read carefully.

There has been an epidemic out there during the chilly months. One that often gets overlooked as we jump from one holiday party to the next.

And that issue is: cold red wine.

Wine is the consummate hostess gift, but nobody appreciates a chilly bottle—not even the wine. Which is where you crafters come in.

Protect your bottle of red with this Wine Bottle Koozie project. An elegant hat and scarf will do the trick to keep your vino from feeling the chill as it goes from your car to your friend’s house. Stylish. Sweet. Hilarious.

Your wine will thank you.
