Justin and I drink a lot of wine. We like to get the cheapy bottles at Trader Joe's for $3-4. Sometimes when we're feeling snazzy we'll go for the $6 ones.
What we're left with, over time, is a LOT of wine corks.
I always get these ideas to be really crafty and clever with them, and there are so many things on Pinterest that I could do, and it makes me feel much more handy than I really am.
I'm really not that crafty. The most impressive thing I've ever done in that capacity is paint our nightstands.
|not bad for an amateur, right?|
So instead of making bathmats or wall murals, I jazzed up an old serving tray we had laying around.
Pretty neat, huh? All I did was hot-glue the corks onto the tray, then poured Modge Podge all over it. It took a few days to dry out, and it made the room smell pungently of glue, but still, it worked!
I feel so creative, like maybe all along there was a Martha Stewart hidden inside me.
I mean, just look at my craft.
This might be the start of something, readers.
