Awhile back, I shared a cork wreath that I made. My brother-in-law is a winemaker and gave me two HUGE bags of unused wine corks that they wouldn't be able to use, knowing that I might be able to use them for a crafty project. I've had this idea for a little while and finally was able to do it yesterday. Here is a quick tutorial (there's not much to it - it's that easy).
* Wine corks
* Hot glue gun and glue sticks
1) Once I determined which letter I wanted to do, I laid the corks, standing on end, and started placing them in the shape of the letter.
2) Start from the bottom and glue the corks together. Just keep them laying there in the placement you wanted and make sure to grab them in order and start gluing them to each other.
3) And keep gluing...
4) And you're done!
Easy peasy! Such a quick and cute project and it really didn't use that many wine corks. So, start saving corks - just don't drink that many bottles of wine all in one night! :)
