I’m not sure what the problem is as you can tie the ribbon around the neck of the bottle.

I will wait to see the pic.

You could do the labels like this:

Personally I think ribbon will look much better than that twine. Maybe it’s the top of the bottle I don’t like. I would go to the make- it -yourself wine store and ask to buy some wine foils in the color you want and put them on before you cover the bottle with ribbon. That way the top of the bottle will look finished.

These shrink tight with heat.

If there is something you can tie around  the neck of the bottle it will cover up the part where it is harder to wrap the ribbon tightly and smoothly.

I’m not suggesting a big bow like this- but see how it covers up that part:

Perhaps a paper or fabric flower?

I love julies1949 ribbon around the neck. Simple, doesn’t have to be exact and you can use your ribbon. Anything that requires less work while still looking good gets my vote.

@Lolasmomma: you could glue a flower on each side of the bottle to cover the area where the neck of the bottle starts.

You could also just use black wine bottles. Ask your local make-it-yourself wine store to order some in for you, or get a local bar to save some.

ETA I forgot all about stretch ribbon! It would be much easier to wrap smoothly around the bottle.

could you just glue it down? I had a similar issue when trying to clue satin ribbon around tapered candle holders. We ended up putting down dots of hot glue to kssp it flat.

What about doing something like this? You could stamp the table names on the burlap then just wrap and glue it to the bottle. By keeping the burlap below the neck of the bottle you avoid any problems with that area.

or you could get burlap wine bags and label them like these
