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?
