Pregnancy sure has turned me into quite the little crafty gal. Other than the years I spent in Girl Scouts, I think it’s safe to say that everything I have ever made myself has occurred during the past 9 months. Right now I am up to 2 Burlap Wreaths, a Pregnancy Scrapbook, and now… a Wine Cork Monogram.
I started collecting wine corks after we got married and until now, they’ve done nothing but sit in various vases around my house. I credit Pinterest for my inspiration, and about 10 blogs for explaining how to make my pretty little H. If your last name begins with H – you are in luck! Here is how I did it…
2. Glue another cork to the top. Easy, right?
3. Keep gluing corks together until you reach your desired height. I used two rows of 9 corks. Make sure the long part of your H is not crooked by stopping to check it frequently. I took my whole H apart the first time I did it because it looked like drunk.
4. After you’ve made your two long parts, attach three corks to the bottom and the top of each part. Then connect the long parts with 6 corks that are the same size. I used A LOT of glue here because I was afraid it would fall apart. So far its holding together pretty nicely.
Clearly there were more than 4 steps, and I apologize for the lack of pictures, but my pregnant belly got in the way.
