Simple Burlap Wine Bag

But if you’re gifting a bottle of wine, adding a little flair to the gift in the form of this simple burlap wine bag won’t go unnoticed! Burlap has such a great texture and look. Somehow rustic burlap will pair equally well with a bargain bottle as it will a fine wine. And, it takes just minutes to whip up this simple burlap wine bag!

Remove the bottle of wine, fold the burlap in half.
