Creations, Wine Cork Memento

This is a fun little craft project

Take a champagne or wine cork, a little paint, beads and wire, and make an ornament or a memento

#1 cork

You can even use washi tape


I made this one for DD & NG when they bought their house.   We celebrated with champagne and I saved the cork and turned it into a special remembrance for them

I thought they would hang it on their Christmas tree

Their address is painted on the bottom

DD hung it on the door of her glass cabinet in the kitchen


I made this one from the cork of a bottle of Proseco that HH and I shared to celebrate the beginning of our 27th summer at our beach house last month

I painted a white stripe around the cork and then painted anniversary on it.  You could use a sharpie marker for the text too~

The cork came with this brightly colored metal cap which I secured with glue. I made holes in the cork sides with an awl {or use a nail or drill} and after twisting the wire and adding beads to match the cap colors I stuck the wire into the holes with a dab of my favorite glue


I am going to hang it on our little beach Christmas tree

This black and white one is made with a button glued on top of a wine cork
