Here are my cast of characters. All unique, but will look loverly under the tree together.
Paper mulch is my new wrapping buddy.
Tree wrap...brown and white.
A long time favorite....twine. I cant seem to live without it!
My first gift wrap is the bottle. It doesnt have to be a wine bottle. Gifting kitchen oils and bubble bath is good too. Cut your paper mulch to fit your bottle.
Wrap the paper around the bottle. No tape required. After the bottle is wrapped tie on the twine.
Make yourself a little tussy mussy of greens and attach with twine.
After three minutes youre moving on to your next package.
Check out the following posts for more details.

The thought of wrapping can be daunting, but it doesn't have to be. Schedule an evening with some friends and get cracking! Have plenty of cool stuff on hand to get the job done right. This post and the following four will show you the look I'm going with this year....naturally beautiul. Note: If wrapping with friends save the wine for later in the evening!

shabbychick writes: Sue - what a great (and simple) way to wrap up a bottle (gotta get some tree wrap...I can see it could have a ton of uses...). And the little tussy mussy finishes it off perfectly!

Merry Christmas to you!!

The driveway is plowed but they forgot the sidewalk--since we are not living there full time but... we are going to do an old fashion Christmas and spend Eve day and Christmas day there! I have to get decorating!! Posted: 2:05 pm on December 16th

What a treffic idea wrapping packages in butcher wrap. I use it all the time and people laugh,just use christmas wrap. But since I was in the meat Business that was my favorite paper. Most of the time you can get it in 12in,15in,18in, and 24in so you have a variety.I even picked this paper up at Garage sales. So keep a eye out. Sue I love the way you did this step by step and as far as the wrapping, I always thought it was a challenge how to wrap that package. Most men dont like it but I do. Thank's for sharing Sue you always do great job.So GANG lets get with the wrapping.Have a great day.ROBERT. Posted: 7:45 am on December 16th
