Project 1: Wine Cork Memo Strip
Start Date: January 1, 2013
Finish Date: January 1, 2013
Total Time: 25 minutes
Difficulty Level: Super Easy
Total Cost: $0
Hot Glue Gun
Run a thick bead of hot glue where you want your cork to be placed.
Place the cork on the glue, making sure to bump it up to the cork next to it. Try to center the cork as best as you can. Corks vary in size.
I used nails that were thin enough to hide between two corks, yet long enough to go through the project and into the wall. I used three nails, one each, placed three corks from the top and bottom, and one in the middle. You are going to be using this to tack photos and messages. You don't want it to fall off the wall every time you use it! Just place the nail between two corks and hit it into the wall. I used the opposite end of my hammer head (what it that called... the side that you take the nails out with) to get between the corks and push the nail until it was barely visible.
I made sure to have the brand of wine showing. I like the fun names and pictures on the cork to showcase my taste in wine! (See the nail between the French Lick Winery and Simply Naked corks?)
I use this to tack little reminder notes such as dentist appointments cards and J's school schedule. I love it :o)
Now, drink up so you can make this project!
Hint: If you don't drink wine, or haven't been saving your corks, you can buy wine cork vase filler at Target. This project would make the perfect gift for a wine lover!
