I love corks and cannot throw them away. I have been envisioning many crafts using corks – so a call went out to several family members in search of corks and wine labels. I am lucky that I have several family members in the wine industry! The corks have been accumulating – which is wonderful and the crafts have started. I have been in search of a picture frame with a wide wood frame and found one at the church bazaar!
Here is a cool link that shows you how cork is made: http://www.wineanorak.com/corks/howcorkismade.htm?utm_source=hackernewsletter&utm_medium=email
Old picture frame with a wide wood frame
Cardboard (only if there is not a back on the frame)
1. Clean the picture frame and put a base on the frame. I took some cardboard that was used in packing, thinner than a box cardboard, but either would work. Cut the board and then glue on with a glue gun.
2. I then took corks and arranged them in the frame – once done I then took then out and placed them by rows.
3. Cover the sides of the frame with cork labels – I used decoupage glue for this part.
4. Using a glue gun glue the corks onto the base. As you can see – I still had to position the corks so weird ways – you may have to cut some corks.
Hang and use!
