During the holidays it’s easy to acquire a stockpile of champagne and wine corks. Most of us just drop these corks in the nearest trash can, but have you ever really looked at the detail of the brand stamps on these things? Some of them are tiny works of art!
If you are looking for a DIY project to start off the new year, here are a few ideas that incorporate your new cork collection. You may need a few more corks to complete these projects, you can purchase used wine corks online at Widgetco.
