If you’re looking to up your game on your standard hostess gift, bring along a little something extra with that bottle of red.

A DIY wine stopper is one of the easiest and most impressive gifts you can bring along. In fact, once you master the technique the sky is the limit in terms of what you can pop on the top. Here are 10 of our favorite DIY ideas.

  1. Wooden Geometric Wine Stopper at The Merry Thought: You can stain this simple stopper any color you like, or go classic with a deep wood grain for fall.
  2. Crystal Bottle Stoppers at Camille Styles: These DIY crystal stoppers make a luxe addition to any bar cart.
  3. Toy Car Bottle Stoppers at Grown-Up Shoes: If you have a child of a certain age, chances are you have plenty of cars around your home. Put a few of them to use for more grown up purposes.
  4. Trophy Wine Stoppers at Country Living: Another way to put some of that childhood memorabilia to good use. Make these from your old sports trophies or scour thrift stores for vintage ones.
