Wine Cork Initial on a Canvas

 

This pretty canvas sign, with a wine cork initial, was a fun project that my daughter Megan made for an update to her bedroom. She had saved a bag of wine corks from a catering job and looked around on line for inspiration to make a DIY project that would incorporate these corks. This project and especially this font style for the initial caught her eye and although she had no clear instructions, she was able to figure it out with trial and error.

On a canvas, arrange the wine corks ( approximately 90) in the initial shape and font desired. With a hot glue gun, begin to glue the bottom and sides of the wine corks. Keep gluing until the initial is completely attached to the canvas. This will be heavy, but don't worry - the glue will adhere well to the fabric frame. Attach a ribbon and bow to finish. Allow the glue to dry completely before hanging.

This would also look great in a kitchen or a bar area. For Megan's wine cork coaster project look here.

Happy Wednesday!

  5. I love all of the cork crafts out there! I was thinking it would take me years to drink all of that wine. But I have asked my sister, who owns a banquet hall, to start saving them for me. Your daughter did a lovely job!

  9. Oh, you have just given me a great idea for a gift idea! I've been saving corks for awhile awaiting a project. I want to do a "W" so it will be quite similar, just upside down and a little more spread. Thanks Vicki. Ann
