Do you save the cork when you open a bottle of wine? Every time we open a bottle, we toss ours in to a tall vase. We’ve been saving for years, and now that our cork vase was full (again) I decided it was time to do something with all of those corks – I made a DIY Wine Cork Monogram craft.

- Flat Wood Letter
- Krazy Glue “Craft”
After much debate, I decided on a 10-inch letter from Michaels that cost $3.99 (less the 40% off coupon I used!). FYI – It took 83 corks to cover the 10 inch “D” and 69 to cover the “P.”
When you are ready to start gluing, lay out a few corks at a time. I found it best to work in batches. I would lay them out on the letter how I wanted them, glue them and then move on to the next group.
Very Important Tip – Work from the bottom up. I started at the top and worked down, and when I got to the bottom I realized I didn’t have enough rom for the corks if I wanted to stay flush with the wood back so it would stand up. That’s why things look a little squished. If I worked from the bottom up, I would have just let the corks hang off a bit.
