Simply Sophisticated Wine Wrap ~ A touch of green on the wine wrap instantly transforms a plain jute bag into a seasonal decoration. Wrap the wine in the bag and hold closed with a rubber band. Insert eye hooks into corks and tie them on a piece of twine to add wine accents to the bag. Ivy wrapped around the neck is a beautiful finish.
