Tutorial on Making a Necklace from Champagne and Wine Corks


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:
