Hi there chickies - how goes it? I'm having the best time this week playing around. (I know. I play around a lot) Anyhoo...I did this tutorial some time back on the easiest, and quite possibly the coolest and unique-est diy wine corks made from drawer pulls. Since that time, I can't pass a drawer pull with the same "it's a drawer pull" attitude.
Additionally, since that time, said tutorial has been fine tuned and perfected. But first...
Thought I'd show you my inspiration - a cork which was made from an antique door knob. I love that thing. And I love my bestie for her sweet generosity. The corks on the side are just a few I've made. (At the risk of digressing too much, I really am not a drunk. I just love pretty wine corks.)
NEW TIPS: It can be downright difficult to screw the pull into the cork properly. First. Get a smaller cork (3/4" in diameter at the top). I got a bag of six corks here for $1.99.
As for screwing the drawer pull into the cork, use a small drill or even a nail to start the hole and have it centered.
That's it. Wine cork away! (but not so much that you appear to be a drunk)
What's your current obsession?
