Wine Cork Monogram
So, I have this collection of corks waiting to be used creatively--I am privileged to have them sent to me from my cousin's vineyard in Sonoma County, CA-thanks, Allie! I love everything about them--from the stamped vineyard names on the sides, the wine stains on the tops, the different colors and smell of them. When a friend showed me this idea for using them in a monogram, I was happy to give it a try.
All you need are wine corks, a glue gun, and a monogram letter. I bought a wooden monogram at Michael's for around $3-it is nice because it already has holes in the back to hang on a wall, but I think you could also print a letter off on the internet, trace it and cut it out of sturdy cardboard too.
Here's how I did it-first I positioned all the corks so they would all fit onto the letters without showing any white. Then I glued one at a time on one side and the bottom and pressed it onto the one next to it.
Here's the finished product!
