This idea originally came from my mum, who always likes to make a good impression with her gifts and often surprises people with their very own personalised wine! I have known her to make them for birthdays, as thankyou’s and even as a welcome present for guests staying at her holiday home in Dunster. (The house is an old police cottage and each bottle has a policeman label! You can visit the website for the old police cottage at http://www.holidaydunster.co.uk/)
Needless to say this project is very versatile. You can use personalised wine bottles as decoration on each table, mini personalised wine bottles as favours for your guests to take home, or if you are a guest yourself you can make one as a gift especially for the happy couple.
You can do this quickly to create multiple labels on the computer, or you can get a bit more crafty and make it by hand using stamps and patterned paper. Here are a few examples of what you can do.
So there you have it! I would suggest that you leave the back label on so that people can see what they are drinking, but other than that you can really create whatever you want.
