Wine Bottle Gift Box, You Can Buy One, or You Can Make One

Wine Bottle Gift Box, You Can Buy One, or You Can Make One

When you give someone a gift, the wrapping is part of the gift just as much as the present inside it. Normally one should never judge a book by its cover but sometimes one should and this is one of those times. Wine does not start to taste better when the box it is presented in is nicer and more expensive, of course not, but it does give it that little bit extra.

You can buy a gift box for wine bottles in all sorts of places, ranging from a wine shop you normally visit or a vineyard store. There are multiple colors you can choose from and even when it comes to designs and materials you will not run out of options.

Design or make your own

Are you a creative person maybe? If you have experience with art work and know about designing then why not create your own wine bottle gift box? When the thought of putting a box together has you buying a designer one then buy one that is already made for you? A tip would be to go to your local wine store and buy a few of the wine boxes that are not decorated yet.

You have a wide choice of materials when it comes to gift boxes for one bottle. There are the ones made of wood but also plastic, fabric, cardboard and even metal. Some decorating tips would be to use a wooden one and paint it, maybe with some rustic scenes or a portrait. An other option could be to go 3 dimensional and glue things like flowers or other items on the box.

Even if your on a budget and you can only by a cardboard wine bottle gift box, you can still paint it to make it more personal and even glue things on it.

If your not only good with design but also with your hands then design the whole gift box from scratch, choose you own material and create something really personal around the bottle of wine you are giving as a present. There are metal containers for wine bottles that you could also use, or maybe create your own from sheet metal.

Maybe you have these wild ideas for a lovely gift wrapping but are not creative enough to make it happen on your own, then you could ask a friend who is a bit experienced to help you out by being the hands to your mind.

Wine should be enjoyed and indeed the wrapping will not make it taste better then it already is. But the joy of unwrapping it, knowing that the gift giver has gone to all that effort just to create something special will make drinking it very special. And just think about all the fun you will have beforehand when you are in the middle of creating the wine bottle gift box.

When you need some ideas or some tips do a search online to find some arts and crafts sites who can show you some new ways of creating the perfect wine bottle wrapping.

The Joy of Pillar Candles

The Joy of Pillar Candles

Pillar Candles

Pillar candles or column candles are beautiful. The simple design fits well with the décor of any room of your home. These candles make excellent gifts and center pieces. Pillar candles are easy to make and the supplies are inexpensive. This makes pillar candle making an excellent project, hobby, or money making project. Pillar candles burn for hours, ensuring you will get hours of enjoyment from your endeavors.

Molded pillars candles are one of the most common types of candles we can make. What I like about pillar candles is the fact that they can be made into any shape or size. Pillar candles are so easy and cheap to make and they can be made from simple household items such as sheet metal, aluminum, plastic, latex, and or silicone. The largest selection is typically available in sheet metal. Sheet metal and aluminum molds are generally very durable and should last for years with very little maintenance.

Most pillar candles have decorations on them that are embedded within the wax of the candle. These candles can be burned in a number of ways. The use of a candle holder is highly recommended to catch wax, stabilize the candle, and reduce the risk of fire while the candle burns. Some people simply burn pillar candles on plates or trays, but there are also candle holders specifically designed for pillar candles. Some of these candle holders use deep bowls to firmly seat the candle, while others are flat, with spikes which are designed to impale the candle, holding it in place.

Many pillar candles have more than one wick in order to help ensure it burns evenly. I bought one of these types of pillar candles from a local store and it had three wicks.  The traditional shape of a pillar candle is round, but they are available in a variety of other shapes as well. Square and hexagonal shapes are also becoming more common, as are pillar candles with designs etched into the side.

Though pillar candles can stand on their own and, therefore, do not need a candleholder in order to keep them upright, it is still necessary to use some form of heat-resistant candleholder to hold the candle. These holders are meant to protect the furniture underneath from becoming damaged by hot, dripping candle wax. In addition, the heat resistant property of the candleholder ensures your safety as it prevents fires from occurring.

Pillar candles are attractive and available in a variety of colors, shapes, and scents. In addition, there are a wide variety of holders available for pillar candles. Therefore, you are sure to find a candle and a holder that is just right for you!
