What To Do With All Those Wine Corks

There are so many cute wine cork crafts on Pinterest, but this one really caught my eye.  It was described as an ornament, but it could also be a necklace, a gift topper, a party favor, or . . . a pull for a ceiling fan.

 

 

I used a cork from my favorite local winery, Oliver Winery.  They have a wonderful soft red, and their sangria is to die for.  The charm is a fleur-de-lis, and the brown buttons and turquoise bead are from my craft stash.  I used black hemp for the cord.

Next time I’ll use a larger charm, and probably silk cord instead of the hemp – it was a little hard to work with.  And maybe I’ll open my wine with this uber-cool electric wine opener.  Is it just me, or does this look like the one everyone was using on Real Housewives of Orange County this past season?

 I’m linking this up to Oh, How Pinteresting, The 52 Weeks of Pinterest Challenge, Works for Me Wednesday, Whatever Goes Wednesday, and The Mommy Club Resources and Solutions.

      1. haahaa! I couldn’t get but laugh at that one because I was thinking the same thing! But…probably better wine than the super cheap stuff I’ve been drinking so that I have a more impressive ornament ;)

        1. If I find a pin on Pinterest for creative things to do with empty boxes of wine you can bet I’ll be posting it – it’s “budget wine” time around here, too ;)

  1. LOVE this idea! I hadn’t seen that one yet … headed to Pinterest now to find and pin it! :-) Can’t wait to read more of your posts and check out your Pinterest boards, too. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Hi! Thanks for sourcing me! That looks great! I hope you had an easy time making it. Besides all of the ones I made last year for Christmas ornaments, I also made one for myself with a a crystal. I hang it from my rear view mirror and it is super cute!
