“Uncork” Wine Cork Frame

I hope you all had a nice weekend!  I had to work on Saturday so my weekend was a fun but brief one day thing. However, we did manage to fit in an easy little DIY project that is perfect for a wine lover!

This project was so simple.  I found a set of these “Uncork” greeting cards at Michaels a while back in the dollar bin and fell in love!  We have had one of the cards on display on our bar/microwave cart in the kitchen ever since but we have been meaning to frame it. I remembered that I had a spare 5×7 Ikea frame ($2.99) that I bought ages ago and an extra wine-colored envelope from Laura’s bridal shower invitations.

I cut the envelope to size and mounted the Uncork card to the envelope using photo stickers.  You could put this in the frame and be done… super simple!  Or you could take it a step further like we did by adding halved wine corks to the frame!

Using a utility knife (or something similar), CAREFULLY (watch those fingers!) cut 7 corks in half lengthwise.  The fun part is acquiring the 7 corks… that requires drinking 7 bottles of wine! :)

Rough up the front of the frame a tiny bit with some sandpaper so your glue will stick better.  Lay out your pattern and use a glue gun to attach your corks to the frame. And there you have it, a wine-lovers frame with delightful vino-themed DIY art!  This project would only cost $3.99 but it was free for me since I already had these things in the house!  Can’t beat that price!

Speaking of all things wine, check out our Zinfandel grape plant’s progress.  Remember when we only had one purple champion grape?  Now they are all purple and looking great… like REAL grapes!  So excited! :)

    Cute! All of our corks around here are made out of wax for some reason. :( Love that you have actual corks!

      We have some of those too! Or plastic. But we save all of them so we have a giant basket of corks at our disposal when we want them :)
