Is it only me, or do others feel like a mere hostess gift needs a little something extra to make it personal? I usually try to write a short, funny poem to accompany a gift that may come up a bit short. Instructables, has a simple, quick tutorial to make a necklace out of your favorite wine cork. I see it working like this: You buy two bottles of wine, pop the cork on one for the necklace, have a few glasses while you craft your handmade gift of vino jewelry, and then wrap the unopened bottle with handmade necklace looped attractively around the neck of the bottle. Any hostess would appreciate this personalized touch.
