Oh, put a cork in it!

A quick addition to my post about upcycling glass jars/wine bottles. I found a couple super fun ideas to re-use all those wine bottle corks! Check it out!!!

 Wine Cork Serving Tray, large
Wine Cork Serving Tray
Draw letter on tray with white chalk.
Cut corks in half with craft knife and glue ends down to the pencil outline on tray, using the wine stained part of the cork.
Glue remaining corks on their sides to fill the entire base of the tray. Cut corks where necessary to fit. Let dry.
Using paintbrush, apply black acrylic paint to the ends of the corks that form the monogrammed letter. Let dry.
Hang on the wall for a place to pin messages or use as a decorative tray.
Tip: Use computer to find font of choice for letter monogram. Print out and enlarge to use as a pattern to guide drawing of letter onto tray.
