With all the Wine and Champagne Corks I got for free from Walt Disney World’s Epcot France Pavilion I decided to come up with some stuff to make with them, and I started thinking about the times in my life when I had Champagne. And how all those time were around celebrations. I also got to thinking how I used to save the corks because I wanted to remember that day, or that moment, but as life moved on, I always ended up tossing them, because there really wasn’t any one way to keep a cork or two.
Well when looking at these Champagne corks I realized how I could have saved those memories all these years. How I could have built up a collection of charms built on those special moments in life.
What better way to forever keep a memento of a special moment then to make a necklace or charm out of it? Imagine a necklace with the cork from the Champagne bottle from your wedding day.
It literally takes less than 2 minutes to make one of these cork necklaces. So let’s get to it:
Step One – Cut about a 1/4 of an inch of the Cork off
Step Two – Open Pinch Bail, Put Cork in open space. Pinch Closed
Step Three – Write with Sharpie on the back the date or event that you want to remember
Step Four – Mod Podge the top and bottom of cork, starting with one side and waiting for it to dry before doing the other side.
