DIY {Wine Bag and Tag} with FolkArt and a Michael’s Giveaway

{Northern Cottage} stenciled wine bag and tag

I’ve partnered up with FolkArt for this latest project….They sent some goodies from their new paint line FolkArt Multi-Surface Satin Acrylic Paint which works on lots of surfaces (fabric, glass, wood, metal, etc.) 

So cool to have one go-to paint rather than needing separate paints for each surface and it's dishwasher safe and machine washable, too – that sure expands the crafty possibilities!! They also sent along some new stencils from Handmade Charlotte.  Both the paint and stencils are available at Michael's.

**Keep reading…you’ll have a chance to win a $100 gift card to Michaels and a gift pack of this amazing FolkArt Multi Surface Paint!!


This Upcycled Wine Bag and Tag are made from a men’s shirtsleeve and a laminate counter sample from the home improvement store. 

{Northern Cottage} just for you wine bag and tag


  • Men’s long sleeve shirt (hubby won’t miss one spare shirt!)
  • Scissors or rotary cutter
  • Sewing Machine (or hand sew if you like)
  • Handmade Charlotte Stencil (tons of cute options but I fell in ♥ with this arrow stencil to use first!)
  • Folk Art multi-surface paint
  • Folk Art clear chalkboard paint
  • Sponge stencil brush
  • Twine
  • Tag (I used a leftover laminate counter sample from when we did our kitchen – I knew I kept them for a reason!)

Cut a sleeve off the shirt a little longer than the bottle you’ll be gifting, sew the bottom/cut-side closed leaving the cuff intact for the top.  Place some cardboard into the sleeve (so it doesn’t bleed through) and stencil the arrow (sooo cute!) several times on the outside.  Be sure to dab off extra paint from the brush before you stencil so you get a crisp clear result.  Let dry. 

Next, paint your tag with black Folk Art multi-surface paint, let dry a few hours and then coat with multi-surface clear chalkboard paint (which I think might be the coolest thing since sliced bread!), let dry an hour and do another coat.  Let cure for 24 hours.  Remember to condition the tag by rubbing a piece of chalk across the surface.

Insert your bottle (wine or sparking cider perhaps?) and tie the top with string, twine and add your tag!
