How to Make a Wine Cork Pendant - Super Cool Gift Idea!
Wine cork crafts have become popular as a great way to upcycle something that tends to be thrown out. There are so many cool pieces you can make and this particular one caught my attention as you wouldn't even know it was a cork. Check out the video below:
This is where you can get super creative. You can use printable images from royalty free sites, or you can go through your photo album and scan some older photographs and make them wallet sized when printed, or use a collage of black and white pictures or even scan some of your own artwork and print on paper. The supplies she used can be purchased online. You can get screw hooks without having to make your own as she did and of course all kinds of charms online.
You can get the eye hooks online or at a jewelry making or craft store. They can just screw into the ends of your wine cork and be secure. For added security you can add some glue as you screw it in just to make sure it is safe. Personally I am not too comfy with pliers so for me the screw in ones work the best.
Adding the Charms You could take apart retro necklaces that have seen better days. You could upcycle old brooches, or use that one earring you have left because you lost the other one. You can really make unique pieces of jewelry that are not heavy to wear and are simple to make. Adding the piece of bling underneath just gives this piece a bit of sparkle and something to anchor it, as the cork tends to be lightweight. Or you can also find charms and bling online:
Wine cork crafts are so unique. You can make them for gifts, or you can sell them online or at craft fairs. All you need is some imagination and a few supplies.
So next time you open that bottle of wine, grab the cork and put it away. You never know what will inspire you next! Check out other WINE CORK CRAFT IDEAS and get creative now.
