Halloween Copy Cat

I have a new 'blogger friend". Jane at Mamie Jane's is very clever and I am copying one of her creative ideas. I needed at hostess gift for an upcoming party and didn't want to show up with just an ol' bottle of wine, so as I was "bloggin' around" I saw this clever idea on Jane's blog. You must go see what she created!

Jane gave credit to Karen at the Graphics Fairy for the graphic. So I ventured to Karen's blog and downloaded the skull graphic and printed it on fabric:I trimmed it and frayed the edges:
And wrapped it around a wine bottle with a string of jute:
I stamped BOO on a scrap of paper. layered it and tied it to the top:
DONE! and it was that quick, too!

I was going to label it BLOOD WINE, but maybe next time.

Thanks to both gals for making this gift an easy one to make!

Cheri is hosting Do it Yourself Day...there are some great ideas posted!
