I don’t always craft, but when I do, it involves wine. For my best friend’s 21st birthday, I was pin-spired to create a pineapple wine bottle. A few months ago, I saw a creation on pinterest made with Ferrero Rocher chocolates and a mason jar, and thought it would be cool to do something similar with a wine bottle. With the help of my mom and boyfriend, we came up with an even cuter and more realistic version, that I want to share with you! It makes a cute centerpiece or gift!
- 1 “chubby” wine bottle
- 2 bags of Hershey’s almond kisses
- faux greenery from a craft store
- hot glue gun
- Cut/ pull off all of little white Hershey Kiss labels from the chocolates
- Cut off all of the leaves from the faux greenery. You want to have a variety of lengths of leaves – short, medium, and long.
- Warm up the hot glue gun and start gluing the leaves on at the base of the neck of the wine bottle. From there, add 2 more layers of leaves to mimic the top of a pineapple. (TIP: stagger the leaves in order to cover up any gaps, leaving a uniform look.)
- Glue on the chocolates, starting at the base of the wine bottle. (TIP: Make sure you glue them far enough from the edge of the wine bottle so they do not break off!)
- Let the glue cool and set, and be sure to package it carefully when travelling!
Chocolate + wine, what more could a person want?
This fun project has inspired me to create other fruit wine bottles, so stay tuned for new craft ideas! If you want to try this out, please share it with me! I’d love to see it 🙂
