Cork-aholic

Yes, it's true, I love corks. I love their texture. I love their color. I love their wine stains. I love their branding.  I love corks.

As you can imagine, with a love as passionate as mine, our cork collection is getting a little out of control.  Last night while waiting for some paint to dry, some string to harden, and some stain to darken, I made a spur of the moment decision to tackle some cork art.

I may be so bold to say I love corks even more when they are heart-shaped.  Now, to just figure out how to hang it on the wall...


Don't forget to check out my Linky Party page to see where I regularly party.  I'm also linking to Today's Creative Blog today

Lovely idea! My husband and I LOVE wine and I have a nice little collection of corks just sitting in my pantry waiting to be turned into something awesome like this!

Love it! Very cute. I just made something from corks recently too. :) They are such easy, little things by which we can remember good times.

I have a bag of a zillion corks and I'm always looking for fun ways to use them. I made a cork board with an old window here:

I love the heart idea - I may have to steal it. :o)

Inspire Me Heather said...

That's fantastic! I made a cork board once too - just used as many corks as I could find and glued them onto a corkboard. Your projects here are great by the way!!
