Corkboard In Progress


Here it is. Our craft project for the art room. As you can see, Jim needs to get on the stick and consume mass quantities of wine to help me complete the project. (He's watching The Coneheads as I write.) I'll be able to use it as soon as it dries. I'll add more corks later.

Oh my. Methinks you need to be on the search for wine corks or that board will take years to finish! LOLOL Unless you have been saving them for years and still have lots to add...? Seems as though I've seen wine corks in bowls at...antique stores? I wonder if there are any on ebay? No matter. I can't wait to see it when it is finished, Candy!

How many more bottles of wine to you need to consume to have enough corks to finish your project? Wish we all could help...consume the bottles of wine, of course.
Is it The Coneheads from the old Saturday Night Live?

Bag of 30 for 4.79. Not too bad! Here you go:

Cool, I like the idea of sticking to corks from wines you've consumed to use on the board, friends of ours used to collect all theirs in a big wine half-barrel.

Unfortunately many wines we get are using screw cap seals now, better for consistent quality but much less aesthetically pleasing, so I suspect it'd be quite a long term project for us to cover a decent sized board - the bags of corks idea sounds much quicker!

Autumn Leaves, thanks for the information on corks. If I have trouble being patient, I may go that route.

Celeste, yes, that was what he was watching. I'm amazed that you're familiar with the old Saturday Night Live. You're a woman of many surprises:) What country were you living in when you watched it? What language was it broadcast in?

Mim, it's so nice to hear from you! It makes me sad to think that they're doing away with corks in favor of screw caps. I don't think they have the charm of the corks...

We like wine with dinner, so after collecting for some time I have a couple of gallon bags full of corks! I stopped collecting them a couple of years ago when our favorite vintner began using synthetic corks.... probably more practical... but not at all collectible!
