Hello there and welcome back to the blog. You know I love making gifts and that includes printables. Especially if they have been created for some great holiday wine!
I love giving and receiving wine and adding a fun holiday wine label just makes it that more interesting.
These wine labels are perfect if you are attending an event and want to give the host a nice bottle or, as I mentioned above just as a Christmas/Holiday gift.
There are two different themes to choose from –
Ugly Sweater and Buffalo check.
I hope you will check them out and get the free printable from the resource library!
Holiday Wine Labels
These are so easy. All you have to do is print, cut and adhere! Let me show you!
I have created a pretty short video if you like to watch instead of going through the written steps. You can click on the video below.
Step 1: Download and Print
So grab the free printables in the resource library and print them onto the Avery 8.5 x 11 shipping labels. This is what I use as sticker paper.
Here are the labels coming off the printer. My printer is just an Epson cheapie but if I change the paper setting to Photo Paper Matte I get really good results. They print a lot slower and I am sure it uses more ink but I want them to look nice when printed.
If you have a good printer you may not have to make these changes in the settings.
The wine labels print with 4 on a sheet to save paper. After they have printed you will want to trim them down.
Step 2: Trim the Labels
I like to use a paper trimmer or my paper cutter for this step. If you don’t have these then a scissor will work just fine.
This is how the Ugly Sweater labels come out of the printer.
Cut down the center first.
Continue by cutting across the center of the two halves and by cutting off the white edges.
Step 3: Adhere to the Bottles
Now you are ready to adhere them to the wine bottles.
I like to place my holiday wine labels on the back of the bottle. This way the recipient can still see what kind of wine they will be drinking. This is helpful if they don’t open the bottle right away.
I know I would like to know what kind it was. If the back label states the type of wine you are good placing it wherever you like.
Figure out your placement.
Peel off the backing of the sticker paper.
Line up one side of the label trying your best to keep it nice and straight. I like to use the existing label as a guide and just barely cover up that edge.
Roll the bottle along as you place the label down then smooth it out.
Continue this process for all of the bottles you are covering.
Step 4: The Finishing Touches
Even after the label was on it just seemed like some finishing touches were in order.
The buffalo check labels are very rustic so I added some jute twine to the neck of the bottle for those.
And some bright colored ribbon on the ugly sweater wine bottles.
I prefer knots as to bows but you can tie whatever you like, of course.
Then you are all done. They are ready to give to friends, neighbors, family members, party hosts and more!
