I’d like to present to you my entry for the Popcorn Box Party 2016: a Wine Bottle Holder. I created this for Fall as a hostess gift you could use for Thanksgiving or any Fall themed party that you’re invited to. In my opinion, it’s nice enough to actually use as a decoration which means that it’s not going to get pushed back into the corner with all the other wine bottles.
I decided to enter the Popcorn Box Party 2016 because I’m actually an undercover crafter. I actually really enjoy crafting of all types but somehow it rarely makes it to the blog. When Laura sent out the call for I decided to jump right in and put it on the blog as a challenge to myself. I hope to actually share more of my crafting life with on the blog over time.
The Popcorn Box Party is really simple. Sixty different bloggers were sent the same popcorn box and a few materials to create their version of the Halloween Popcorn Box. As you can tell, I went a little different in choosing a more Fall themed project but there are so many different versions that people created, it’s really an interesting challenge to see how they interpreted the Popcorn Box Party.
First, I added a gold cardstock over the top to keep the popcorn stripes from showing through the burlap and glued the burlap in as a covering for the box. This was very reasonable. I only used $.50 of burlap; I purchased 1/8 of a yard and transformed the box!
To finish it, I embellished it with some items I had around the house. It was a quick project as well!
I was really pleased with the final product and can’t wait to give it away to a friend at the next Fall themed event I’m invited to.
