Wine Cork Centerpiece (Numbers or Monogram)

I saw an amazing wine cork monogram done by Popular with the Poplins. I thought what a perfect idea to do for my mom's surprise 60th birthday party. A few things I learned: 1) it takes a LOT of corks to do these big #'s I thought 250 would be plenty turned out only covered the 0 and one line on the 6. I believe it took me around 375 to do both #'s. 2) Instead of buying them off Amazon (WHICH was actually the cheapest I found) you can go to Total Wine and More and get them FREE. Bring a bag to the store and they will fill it up with all the corks you want ... YES FOR FREE!!! Oh yes I wish I would have known that in the beginning and saved me $64! OR put a SOS on Facebook I found that a TON of my friends are wino's and have a bunch ... LOL!


What you need:
Corks (I bought 2 packs fo 250 for $32 a pack)
Wood Letters or Numbers (Hobby Lobby $12.99 Each)
Hot Glue Gun and a TON of Glue Sticks

I took my glue gun and put a glob at the end of the cork (I used the wine stained side up to give the piece some character). I started on the inside and worked my way out. It doesn't have to be perfect put them together with little gaps I found looked the best. It's going to take some time so make yourself comfy!



I must say even though they were a bit spendy to make I LOVE them!
Next time I'll hit up the FREE cork route and it would ONLY cost under $30!

Thanks for Stopping by!
