Heres the gift I plan to give the hostess of the next holiday party hubby and I are attending.  This old sweater sleeve covered a bottle of wine perfectly - plus, it needed no sewing...whew!   Just cut off the sleeve from a too-small or never worn sweater, and slip over a favorite bottle of wine.  Fold down the top for a perfect cuff and add embellishment.
I picked green...cause I love green!  The more texture the sweater has, I think the cuter the sweater sleeve looks.
And, since Im hosting a couple of parties myself, instead of buying wine charms, I came up with a different idea.  Love them!
Have I mentioned I never throw anything away?!  This really is a door bell button...cute, huh?
Key from a motel...oops, must have forgot to check out!
Love my old metal cow tags...

artteachergirl writes: Cute, cute, cute!!! I'm partial to lime green so that wine sleeve would work great as a gift for me...hint, hint! Nah, but all the number tags and junky keys are just wonderful! Love it! Have a great Christmas! Posted: 3:09 pm on December 24th
