DIY Cork Crafts for Winos
Hi. My name is Julie and I'm a wino...and if you're one too, you probably have tons of wine corks gathering in your kitchen junk drawer or collecting in a box somewhere, right? And you're saving them for a special wine cork craft project, except you don't have any ideas of what that project will actually be...you just know that you don't want all of those corks going in the trash. Well, my cork stash is beginning to overflow and it's time to get crafty and turn them into something creative! I the searched the Internet high and low for unique DIY ideas from fellow winos and found some really fun (and easy) projects. I might try out one of these over the weekend...but we'll see if I'm still feeling motivated by then. Do you have any of your own wine cork craft ideas? Please share!
Cork Memory Board - details on how to make this fun work of art found here
Wine Cork Rubber Stamps - Love this idea! Details on this project here.
Wine Cork Clock - Make your own or purchase this one on Etsy (and tell your friends you made it :)
Wine Cork Journaling - make memories out of your corks by jotting down the date and who you shared the bottle of wine with! Display them in a decorative bowl and take a walk down memory lane every now and then by reading through the corks, triggering happy memories of good times and good wine. (Note to self: do not "journal"each time I've enjoyed a bottle with myself...that could be depressing. Ha Ha !). This fabulous idea came from the blog Mintage Home.
