I collect corks from wine bottles.
It's just what I do. It's fun, and a way to keep track of all the neat bottles you've drank without saving the actual bottle.
My boyfriend's mom also collect corks, and had A LOT saved up. She had planned on making me a corkboard with them, but with moving and whatnot, she never got around to doing it.
Sooo, she gave me the stuff to do it! :)
I wish I had taken pics of everything step by step - but I didn't. :(
P.S. You can actually stick thumb tacks into the corks, so it really can be used as a corkboard.
Wanna make your own?
Here's what you'll need:
A coffee table tray (got mine at World Market)
Plenty of wine corks
Super glue gun w/ glue
It was a bit time consuming, (only an hour) but it was fun. I don't get crafty often, so it was enjoyable for me to see the finished product of something that I actually sat down and made.
I've already got a couple people in mind that I would like to make one for, so I guess I better get to drinking more wine! ;)
