It’s Christmas Time
It seems we’ve only just taken off our sunglasses and put the summer’s after-sun lotion back in the cupboard, and now autumn is rushing in, reminding us that winter is already on its way and it won’t be long before it arrives.
We can almost smell the scent of freshly-baked biscuits, and hear the crackling of the fire and the snowflakes quietly drumming at our windows – and we can hardly wait!
To get in the mood for the coziest time of the year, we are gearing up the Christmas decorations and are fetching the candles, garlands and fairy lights down from the attic.
And because decorating is so much fun, we’re also fetching our scissors and glittery foil and are turning the pretty, white fürst von metternich chardonnay bottles into a christmassy diy eye-catcher for this year’s living room christmas decorations.
That's how it's done:
Fancy making our DIY idea yourself? You will need:
4 empty Fürst von Metternich Chardonnay sparkling wine bottles 0.75 ml (cheers!)
1 A4 sheet of heavy paper, 200g/m2
Self-adhesive glittery foil
Our printing template
Print the template in colour on a sheet of firm A4-sized paper and use the scissors to cut out the letters and the tags.
Using your pencil, trace the outlines of the four letters on the back of your glittery foil. Make sure that you trace them as mirror images so that they are the right way around when you attach the foil later. This doesn’t matter so much for the M and the A, as these are identical from both sides. However, the S and the X are slightly different, so you will need to place them the wrong way around when tracing them.
Using your scissors, cut out the letters on the glittery foil.
Remove the labels from the sparkling wine bottles (they come off very easily) and attach the letters.
Use the hole punch to put holes in the centre of the tags and tie them to the necks of the bottles using the white ribbon.
And you’re done!
Now all you need to do is put some pretty wintry branches into the bottles and your DIY Christmas decoration is complete.
