It's no secret I like to drink wine. OK, I really like wine. It's something I inherited from my daddy's side of the family. My uncle makes his own in the basement for crying out loud! It's only natural I love the stuff. I have to tell you a funny story. I ran into the corner store with my little guy to get him a juice before a road trip. As we walked toward the back of the store, we had to pass the wine display. My sweet child looked up at me and so innocently asked if we were getting me my "juice" too. Ha! Now that makes you a little uncomfortable. OK, back to Pinterest. I collect wine corks. I keep all of them. I like to use them as a display in the kitchen, but now have found I can be crafty with the excess that I can't fit in my vases on the shelf. I came across a handful of pins with the idea to glue used corks onto a letter. As any southern girl will tell you, we LOVE monograms! We have been known to monogram anything we can get our hands on...sheets, towels, wine glasses. You name it...we monogram it! So as you can see, this had to be a great idea. Let me share my new found craft:
What you need:
a flat wooden letter (I got mine at Michael's...don't forget your coupon).
80-100 corks (don't judge me)
hot glue gun
I didn't have a method or layout for my corks. I "free handed" gluing them onto the letter. Your final product should come out something like the picture below.
As you can see, it makes cute wall art out of something most people throw away. So, not only are you crafty, you are saving the earth one bottle of wine at a time. Cheers!
