So I've been collecting wine corks for awhile wanting to do something cool with them, but apparently I don't drink enough wine cause I didn't have a very good collection. Anyway - while I was at walmart today, I spotted bags of corks. Seriously? Could I complete my project? I immediately knew what I would be doing this evening! So I snagged all they had, along with a couple other cool things I found (note to self: check that aisle more often) and headed home.
Grab your supplies:
Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive
Ribbon & Embellishments (if desired)
Xacto Knife (possibly)
Now, let the fun begin...
1. Position corks to achieve your desired shape. You can do more than just a square - think of items in your house that you could use as a template (clock, cups, plates, etc). You may need to trim a few pieces to get everything to line up properly. The xacto cuts through cork like butter, especially with a fresh blade - so be careful!
2. Glue pieces together and allow to completely dry.
3. Embellish as desired! I used items from Two Chicks Designs - Chick'n Noodles, Chick'n Feed & Chick'n Feathers.
Here is my finished project. Super easy, and had I not stopped to eat dinner, I would have been done in less than an hour. Now I have a cute little hanging cork board for my scrap area to post little reminders to myself!
I would love to see if you create something along these lines - so definitely come back and share!!
