Dracula Wine Bottle Cape | Free Crochet Pattern

Last year, the idea came up for adding decorations to the wine bottles, and I started making wine bottle covers/wraps to dress them up a bit. So this year, I made a black and red Dracula Wine Bottle Cape. I added it to a dark bottle of Seven Deadly Zins, and it really adds a great pop of color and personality it my bar decor.

Bar decorations are always part of Halloween around here. We have a small bar in the corner of our living room that is always a focal point for guests, so I try to fill it with whimsy over the holidays. It’s fun to direct people to my favorite wine by adding, “It’s the one in the tuxedo,” or “Try the ghost! It’s delicious!”

    Kati: Just finished the Dracula Wine Bottle Cover. It is the cutest, ever. I’m loving your playful patterns and as soon as I make my daughter a Dracula bottle cover (she tried to take mine!) I’ll be working on the witch placemat. Thanks for the free pattern for this and for sharing your talent. carol Becht
