Cork Monogram

Remember the wine wreath that I made last year? After my mom told me she wanted one too, I decided to take it one step further and make it into a monogram.

Then, I glued corks to it! I liked having the wine-stained sides up, but there were a few with dates or logos on the other side, so I made sure to check before gluing. I also recommend doing the whole process in blobs, beginning with the edges of one section first to create a smooth line, and fill in the middle. Place about 8 or so on the letter to test out placement before gluing. I had to glue and un-glue a few to make them fit, but as long as you maintain a straight edge, it will look professional!
