The easiest of the two wine "projects" that I undertook is what we now lovingly refer to as our "cork-hids" (rhymes with "orchids"). I found a large glass vase at Michaels and bought some fake reeds and orchids to put in it. Then, I filled it with all of the wine corks that we had saved. It started pretty low, but we add the cork from every bottle that we've drank (we've even taken them from restaurants and have written on the important ones). I love the way it looks and it's a great reminder of
Someday, I want to make bulletin boards and trivets with our corks, but we'll wait until the cork-hids are filled up first.
That's 3+ years worth of wine corks...
Tomorrow, I'll post my first real tutorial of the wine label wall art for anyone else who wants to create something beautiful out of their wine memories!
The reeds give some great height to the blank wall
