DIY |burlap wine bags

{ burlap wine bag }

I had several yards of burlap left over from my wreath project. So, I tried to come up with a little project to use what I had a left over. I came up with burlap wine bags. Not only was I able to find a use for the burlap, but also I thought these would make great Christmas gifts. Plus, I already had all of the supplies on hand. Here’s what you’ll need…

  • burlap
  • ribbon
  • paint
  • cardboard (for stencil)

I made a few stencils out of cardboard (the thinner the better – I found that manila file folders worked best).

After using a wine bottle to measure how much fabric I would need, I ran a few simple stitches to form a sleeve.

I used the stencils to paint seasonal words on the burlap.

{ joy. }

I folded over the excess fabric at the top of the sleeve to make a large hem.

Then I ran one more stitch about a 1/2 inch from the hem stitch – this created a little pocket so I could create a drawstring. I snipped the front of the drawstring pocket so I had a place to string the ribbon. After running a ribbon through the pocket (the first try wasn’t so easy!) it was finished.

    • Hi Katie, I made my own- just found a font I liked and printed onto heavy duty card stock, then cut the words out using an exacto knife. Hope that helps! Good luck!
