The holidays are a great time for us to show our loved ones how much we care. What better way than with a handmade gift?! Here are some great DIY gift ideas for the wine lovers on your list.

It’s true, wine glasses are beautiful. If you’re an ambitious DIY-er looking for a project that will really make an impression, consider this gorgeous wine glass chandelier. Instructions here from Marc&Mandy.

Customized wine tote by simply sewing a seam down the middle of a basic tote bag… viola! You have a two bottle tote bag. This tutorial from includes customizing the bags with a silhouette cutting machine, but if you don’t have one, try making stamps out of corks and customizing the totes that way. Or simply use a pencil eraser for a pixilated, ombré look like this one shown on VandCO.

Missouri wine pairs well with DIY gifts from the heart (and hands)!
