cork-mania.

we've been collecting corks ever since we moved in together and a few weeks ago i thought it would be a good time to put those things to use and make a cork board!

we still have a few more bottles of wine to drink before it's done (ha, i'm not complaining), but i'm already liking where this is heading.

it's so easy to make! here's what i did...


1. went to michaels and purchased a wooden frame, plywood for the back of frame (not pictured here) and red paint. total cost - about $5.50


2. paint frame.


3. take plywood (measure and cut to the size of the frame if needed) and hot glue edges to the back of the painted wooden frame.


4. spread out your corks and start arranging them on the board in a pattern. i placed two vertical and two horizontal corks in a repeating pattern. 
*i first did a dry-run of each section before i hot glued them to the board.



and there you have it. like i said we still need a few more but that shouldn't be a problem. we like our wine. and the bonus? this entire thing cost me about $5. well, if you don't count the bottles of wine we had to drink. heyyy, i'm sure some of them were gifts.
i eventually want to hang this in our hallway and display some of my instagram pictures on here!

do you guys know how to print instagram pics?? i hear there is a website or something?

If you don't wanna buy that many new corks, some Italian restaurants (or any restaurant that serves wine by the bottle) will keep their corks, and if you ask really nicely, they might be able to spare you a few. The chances are higher if you ask a place you like to eat at often ;) Just found your blog, by the way! It's really cute, I'm glad I found it through Friday's Fancies. :) Hope you're having a good weekend!
