Wine Corks

So I mentioned yesterday that I tried a few new wines (future blog topic).  Then, I started thinking about wine corks.  I save all of mine.  Not sure why.  What in the world am I gonna do with all of them? (Not that I have a whole lot *clears throat*)  I found a really cute cork holder at a wine bar in downtown Acworth, GA.

This makes for a pretty nifty display.  Prior to this adorable find I just used a glass vase.  I also filled a couple of hurricanes with some corks and threw a candle on top.  Easy breezy decorative candles for my wine cabinet.

I found some other super creative ideas on this wonderful invention they call the internet that I would love to try out in all of my spare time.  This super fly letter “C”  for one.  L-O-V-E it.

I made a corkboard out of all mine. I don’t actually put pins in it, I just hung it above my wine rack. Everyone that comes into my apartment comments on how cool it is. It’s kind of like the dart board picture, just not as big. I’d need a drinking buddy to accomplish that. 😉 I LOVE the coaster idea too, though. Maybe that’ll be my next project.

I put mine in a cool shaped glass vase on top of a book shelf in my dinning room. I love the use of corks for decor! The letter idea is super cool. I think I need to drink more wine!!
