Make your own fun DIY wine gift basket with a Cricut Joy! Personalize coasters, DIY wine charms, wine glasses, and more!
This post is sponsored by Cricut. However, all opinions and projects are my own.
If you’ve been following me a while, then you know I have a love for wine. I know a lot of others do also, so today I am going to show you how to make a few easy but cute items to put together a DIY wine gift basket for almost any occasion using my Cricut!
I made everything for this wine basket with my Cricut Joy. I love that I can stick it on any counter and I like to think I make less of a mess when I use it (not sure my family would agree, ha!).
I started brainstorming different types of wine gift baskets you can put together for the wine connoisseur in your life and here are a few I came up with:
Wine Basket Ideas
There are a ton of fun items to put in a wine lovers basket depending on who you are giving it to. Here are a few ideas:
- Wine Picnic Basket – perfect for couples. Include a picnic basket, blanket, paper products, wine glasses, sunscreen, wine, nonperishable snacks. If the couple has kids, include a voucher for free babysitting!
- Wine and Cheese Basket – Fill with different kinds of cheeses, crackers, olives, chocolates, and of course wine.
- Wine and Chocolate Basket – Include a few bottles of wine, white and red, and different types of chocolate that sample well with the wines.
- DIY Wine Basket – my favorite type of gift basket!! Making personalized items that the recipient will use more than once and that they will cherish since they are handmade is my go-to.
Think birthdays, bridal showers, weddings, Christmas, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, teacher gifts, etc. Anytime you have a wine drinker on your list, they will always love and appreciate wine (I speak from experience being a wine lover!)
A wine gift basket DIY with a Cricut doesn’t have to end with just these projects. You could also make a cute wine dish towel, a funny wine sign, a wine cork shadow box, wine lover’s DIY shirts, homemade wine stickers, a tote bag with a funny wine saying, a custom wine bottle label with printable vinyl, etched wine glasses, funny wine magnets…
With a Cricut cutting machine, the sky is really the limit on your creativity and what you can add to a gift basket. Well, let’s get started!

DIY Wine Coasters
I absolutely love how these DIY wine coasters came out! There are so many cute wine phrases in Cricut Access it was actually hard to pick.
These funny wine coasters were easy to design in Cricut Design Space. I searched “wine” in images and found 4 sayings that I liked.
Also, if you are new to CDS, make sure to check out my series of Cricut Design Space 101 tutorials to get started.
You can access this project in Cricut Design Space by clicking here!
Insert a circle and size it to 3.6 inches and then duplicate it so you have 4 on a new canvas.
Delete off the extras. Repeat for all four wine coasters.
I changed all of mine to purple so I could see what they would look like!
After you click on Make It, make sure to pick On Mat material. Choose your mat size and make sure to turn on the Mirror setting!
Select Infusible Ink transfer sheet for your setting and place the transfer sheet ink side up on a Cricut Joy mat. Follow the on screen prompts to cut out the coaster transfer sheets.
If you need a more in depth tutorial of these steps make sure to check out my full tutorial on how to make infusible ink coasters.
I weeded out the wording with my fingers.
I always like to check the Cricut heat guide so I know exactly how to layer everything and press the wine coasters. I preheated my EasyPress 2 to 400F.
Wipe off the coasters with a lint free cloth and then lay the transfer image face side up. Center the coaster over with the right side facing down.
Tape everything in place with heat resistant tape.
Place a piece of butcher paper over and press for 240 seconds with no pressure.
Let the coasters fully cool down and then you can remove the transfer sheet to check out the vibrant funny wine coasters!
So perfect for a DIY wine gift basket!
Custom Wine Glasses with Vinyl
But I wanted everything to match in this DIY gift basket, so I used a permanent vinyl the same color (wild aster) as the Infusible Ink to make some funny wine glasses from plain glasses I got at the Dollar Store.
Again I found a few wine sayings in Cricut Access then cut them out of vinyl with my Cricut Joy. This was not a smart vinyl, I just cut the regular vinyl roll and added it to a Cricut Joy mat.
Weed off the extra vinyl. Apply transfer tape over the funny wine saying, scrape it down well and then peel it off it’s backing.
Make sure your wine glass is clean. I always like to clean it with rubbing alcohol so that the vinyl adheres better.
Center the vinyl with the transfer tape over the wine glass (or use the hinge method as I did here) and place it down. Make slits with scissors on the edges of the transfer tape to help with the curved surface.
I just press it down well with my finger and then peel off the transfer tape.
Easy peasy! I made two to add to the wine basket DIY. If you are giving the wine gift basket to someone right away, make sure to tell them to not get the vinyl wet for 72 hours so it adheres really well!
DIY Wine Charms with Holder
Next up is making some easy DIY wine charms with a cute little tag! Again, you can access this project in Cricut Design Space here if that’s easier than designing it yourself.
In Cricut Design Space, I inserted a square and unlocked it to make a rectangle that was about 6 inches long x 2.75 tall.
Then I inserted a circle and made it pretty small, then duplicated and spread them apart by 0.4 inches, aligned them, and then attached them together.
Then I duplicated them 5 times so I had a total of six sets (for 6 wine charms.)
Then space them out so they cover the length of the rectangle. Then I selected them all and Aligned them to the to and then Distribute Horizontally.
Then I Welded all the circles together so I could slice them out at one time. Then I selected the rectangle and the circles and clicked on Slice. Remove the extra circles that were sliced.
Next, I added a text box and chose a Writing font and typed in Wine Charms. I found a few draw only wine glasses in Cricut Access and added those too.
I changed the Pen color on all of them to Gel and then Purple. Select the writing, drawings and the rectangle and Attach (lower right hand corner) them all together.
On the next screen I choose On Mat and used a 4.5 x 6.5 inch mat.
Follow the onscreen prompts to insert the gel pen first. Then the Cricut Joy will pause and you’ll swap the pen out for the blade housing.
Making Wine Charms with Vinyl
The charms themselves are quick to make. I found this pack of charms used for stamping at my local craft store and ended up using the middle size.
I couldn’t quite decide on a theme so I just chose a bunch of cute images in Cricut Access.
Since we will be cutting these out pretty small, you don’t want anything intricate. Silhouettes are best! I made them all a little less than 0.5 inch in size.
Since I wanted everything the same color, I actually cut the wine charm decals out at the same time as the wine glass decals and weeded the extra vinyl off.
I cleaned the charms with a lint free cloth. Then you can either your fingers to peel the image off the backing and place it on metal charm if it’s only one piece of place some transfer tape on it and apply.
Here all six charms done. Then I added them to wine glass hooks and on the card.
Cricut Joy Wine Card
Last but not least, I used my Cricut Joy to make a cute wine card. I have quite a few full tutorials on making custom cards with the Cricut Joy so make sure to check those out if you need more details!
I found a wine card image and also a cute draw image for the inside of the card. When having the Cricut Joy write inside a card, you need to move the wording to the center of the card in the Prepare screen.
The card image itself usually will come in the exact size and centered where it needs to be on a 4.25 x 5.5 inch card.
Choose card insert for your setting. Since this writing goes on the inside, I flip the card and place it so the inside of the card is on top of the card mat.
Once it’s done, remove the card and place the written side under the card flap so the top of the card is now on top.
Follow all of the on screen prompts to swap out the pen and blade.
When it’s all done, unload the mat and pull off the card. The majority of the cut out pieces should stay stuck on the mat (if it’s still pretty sticky!).
Insert one of the included cardstock inserts (I love the matching purple color!) into the corners. Sign your name and the cute wine card is done!
Now it’s time to put the DIY wine gift basket together!
Grab a basket or plastic bucket. I used my shredder to shred paper to add as stuffing since I didn’t have any.
I had made this cute Infusible Ink wine bag before so I put a bottle of wine it – and it matches my color scheme! Woo Hoo!
I ended up wrapping the wine glasses in bubble wrap because I didn’t want them to break before I gave the wine gift basket as a gift.
I love all of the items in this gift basket for a wine lover, I might need to make one for myself!
