How to Throw the Perfect Wine and Crafting Night

Picture this: It’s Friday night, you’ve just ordered takeout, and you’re cracking open the first bottle from the newest Eater Wine Club box. Now what? Move your hand away from that TV remote, because we’ve got a better idea for how you should spend your evening. With the help of our friends at KiwiCo, we humbly suggest that there’s no better pairing for a fresh bottle of wine than a hands-on, creative activity like crafting.

Whether you do it alone or with a group of friends, crafting is a great way to help you decompress, practice mindfulness, and tap into your inner kid. For a fun and relaxing evening, pair your favorite wine option with a grown-up art project from KiwiCo, known for their creative, hands-on projects for kids and kids at heart. As a gift to yourself, we suggest trying KiwiCo’s Maker Crate line: a monthly subscription (sound familiar?) that comes with one DIY craft project and all of the instructions and materials needed to complete it. It doesn’t matter if you’re a first-time crafter or an experienced artisan — you’ll discover new artistic tools and techniques while also creating something beautiful and functional.

Read on for our suggestions on how to pair some of KiwiCo’s most popular crafting crates with the wines in your May box.
