If you are going to a housewarming party, it is customary to give the hostess a thoughtful token gift, such as a bottle of wine. One way to make the gift even more thoughtful is to insert the wine bottle into a decorative bottle cover. You can make your own hand knit wine bottle cover using a few basic materials. Once finished, the wine bottle cover will make the wine bottle look artistic and homey.
