Now that the weekends here though I'm ready to have some fun and get some things taken care of. My to do list this weekend is lengthy, but I will check it all off by Sunday night. For starters, this tree must come down!
Here's a project I finished up over the break. I had been collecting wine corks for some time now and wanted to actually do something with them.
photoshoot. The A is from our wedding reception centerpieces, and the burlap was leftover from the runners. This project was practically free other than the craft board (under $2).
First I cut the wine corks in half lengthwise with a steak knife (be careful!), this took the most time and I finished it over a couple sessions.
Next I cut the craft board to fit under the frame, then hot glued the burlap to it. I started to lay out the corks how I wanted them and placed the frame over top to make sure they fit snug. Going through the corks and seeing the one from Biltmore Estate and a few Moet made me smile to remember the special occasions those wine bottles were opened for.
After I had my desired layout, I started to hot glue, row by row. Last was affixing the "A" to the corner and finally gluing the frame to my board.
How was your first full work week of 2014?
Do you have any wine cork projects that you've finished or would like to do?
