Wine Cork Letters


I have seen different projects using wine corks and have been collecting wine corks for sometime. I had finally managed to have enough to make a project and decided on making letters with it. And this is what I came up with.


I started placing the corks the way I wanted on a piece of cardboard, and once I was happy with how it looked, I just glued the corks in place.  After the corks were dry I cut the outline. But I think, it would have been much easier for me to first cut the cardboard first and then glue the corks after that. The edges would be much cleaner that way. Once the corks are already glued, it is little difficult to cut the edges. I guess you learn as you go. The 'B' letter was the first letter I made. For the next letter, which is when I have enough corks for the next letter that is, I will remember to first cut the cardboard out and then glue the corks.

For this project, you'll need:
------------------------------------
-Wine Corks
- Cardboard
- Glue

Here are few of the pictures I took while I was working on this project




And here's after I cut the cardboard out.

  7. Beautiful. We got a big metal letter, two Christmases ago, that you can fill with corks but even though we have everyone contribute the corks it's not even half full yet. I guess we're more of a beer drinkers, lol. Thanks for linking up at Thursday Favorite Things. Can't wait to see what you'll share next week!
