We drink wine and many of the bottles come with corks. Our last name begins with the letter “H”. I had a wooden “H” that I recently purchased from JoAnns. Naturally I thought….what could I make and quickly decided to make a monogram “H” using wine corks. Genius!
I gathered all the corks and we didn’t quite have enough.
…I vowed to drink more wine. ;)
I didn’t want to corks to stick out their entire length so I had my hubby cut them in half. Of course that resulted in twice as many corks but still not quite enough so…
…I will have to keep my vow to drink more wine. ;)
The letter “H” was plain wood so I painted it white and started hot gluing the corks on. I didn’t start with any pattern or anything but by the time I was nearly done I had this….
Ehhhh….not so much. The corks on the right are a little wonky and the corks on the left are lined up a little neater. I also am not happy with the white that shows through. Hmmmm…..
So I decided to paint the “H” brown to see if that helped. I removed all the glued on corks, painted the “H” and then began gluing the corks back on. I also am putting them four across instead of three.
I think it’s looking better….what do you think?
You will have to stay tuned to see the finished project. :)
Stay awesome!! ~lisa
