Time To Pop Some Bottles!

Good Morning Y’all!

Are you ready for the fastest craft ever? You may think I’m kidding but I’m not! I seriously have the fastest, easiest craft ever for you today; champagne/wine cork ornaments.

I made two of these ornaments for one of my dear friends using the champagne corks from her mimosa brunch bridal shower. It’s a great way to take something that would typically be discarded and turn it in to a sentimental gift for someone who has recently celebrated a milestone such as a bridal shower/bachelorette party/wedding, engagement, birth, or graduation! And the best part is it only takes a couple of minutes from start to finish with minimal mess; you can’t beat that!!

Materials:

  • Clean, dry wine or champagne corks from your special occasion. 1 per ornament you’d like to make.
  • Mini short shank screw eyes. I found mine at Michaels in the picture hanging supplies area of the framing department.
  • Thin width ribbon in the color of your choice.

Instructions:

1) Start with clean, dry corks.

2) Screw one short shank mini screw eye into the top of each cork. This is easier than you may think. These mini screw eyes screw into the cork very easily using no tools and just slight downward pressure as you twist it in. Easy peasy.

3) Thread a length of thin width ribbon through each mini short shank screw eye and tie in to a knot.

4) If you desire, write the event details/date on the cork in sharpie. I chose to write just the date of the bridal shower on the top.

And there you have it! The easiest, fastest craft I’ve ever done! I won’t say I told you so but… πŸ˜‰

XOXO,

Cait
