Wine Cork Valentine Heart


Sometime over the past couple of years I saw a heart made from wine corks that I liked a lot. I would show it to you but I can't find it. So you'll have to make do with seeing the one I made today.



First I got out my wine corks and picked out the ones with pink or red ends.

Then I cut a heart out of cardboard. I just refreshed my cardboard collection when I cleaned up the basement last week. 

I covered the cardboard heart with corks - via the glue gun.

Then I put some leftover Christmas ribbon around the base of the corks.

And voila!



Just so you'll know - every one of these corks is at least pale pink. I couldn't get all the color in the pictures for some reason.


 

I'll probably put this on the front door for the week of Valentines Day but for now it's hanging out inside with me. It's kind of pretty. I like seeing it.

Have a great day ya'll!

Make something wonderful today!

My wine cork heart and I will be partying here this week:

Such a cute idea! I have friends and family save their wine bottle corks for me and I'm always on the lookout for new ideas to use them. -- Jan

Very nice, Karen. You come up with some great cork ideas. I really should try to do a project. Heaven knows we have enough corks to float a battleship around here.

Shannon Conner said...

Awesome project! I wish I liked wine so I could make one. :/

That is so nice! I like this idea-That's a lot of corks! --how long did it take you to collect those corks? Did you have someone else helping.
Something funny...I'm not a wine drinker, but a few years back (about 6) The Honey and I decided we'd have 1 glass each evening. Well, we didn't like it. We tried several.
(about 5) ...yes, guess how many corks I have in my collection?!

...five. just the five.
