After moving around for a few years, we’ve finally been in one spot long enough to meet people – which is great but leaves me with a much longer gift list this year. Pairing something delicious with a festive ornament seems like the perfect DIY Christmas gift for neighbors and friends. I’m sharing a free wine glass ornament sewing pattern courtesy of Sutter Home Family Vineyards – stitch one up and sling it over a bottle of their wine for the perfect present!
I think the sequins add a fun touch; they don’t take as long as you might think. I love ornaments for gift giving because they don’t take too long to make but still show that you took the time to make something by hand.
We were invited to a Christmas dinner with friends next week; I’m not always confident of things I’ve baked or cooked but wine is a sure bet. I made coordinating white & red ornaments to go along with each of them, of course!
I think they’ll be the perfect wines to enjoy while we exchange gifts and eat some holiday treats. We don’t indulge that often, so I appreciate buying from a family owned business and knowing that Sutter Home Family Vineyards has won lots of awards and been around for 65 years, so you know they can be trusted.
The beads and sequins really catch the light! Ready to make one for yourself? Curl up with a glass of wine and start stitching.

Step 1- Cut 2 glass and 1 wine piece for each ornament (I use freezer paper to cut my pieces, you can see more about that technique in this post!). Use coordinating sewing thread and push your needle up through the middle of the sequin, insert a seed bead on top.
Step 2- Loop back down and through the sequin’s hole again. Come up next to it and repeat for the next sequin, filling up the entire accent piece.
Step 3- Use a pin and center the sequined piece on the wine glass piece, blanket stitch around the entire piece, affixing it to the glass piece.
Step 4- Using coordinating thread, sew the bugle beads on one at a time around the edge of the wine glass piece.
Step 5- Layer the beaded wine glass piece on top of the plain wine glass and blanket stitch around half of the body. Pause to insert stuffing into the stem and base, and then continue stitching up to the top, insert stuffing and even it out, stitch closed.
Step 6- Stitch embroidery floss through the corner and knot it, trim, to act as a hanger.
