TIPsy Tuesday - Wine Cork Monogram

This craft time may have taken a couple of TIPsy Tuesdays to make.  This is craft time for adults and a little home decor beauty.  I saved up corks for a while and made this monogram especially for Leslie and Michael's home.  I know they would appreciate it and many of the corks were from mine and Leslie's favorite wines!  This is a pretty easy tutorial, so have fun with it and maybe... a glass of wine (just no driving).

What you'll need: hot glue gun, monogram wood chip board (easily gotten at any craft store), hammer, frame hanging hardware, pencil, ruler, wine corks

I started with laying the corks out and lining them up to figure out how best to fit them.  This is a bit tedious and difficult at times when you feel like you are playing a never ending game of "Dominoes".

Next I hot glued each of the corks down to the board.  I left all the corks on the board while I carefully glued them on. 

When all of the corks are glued on, flip the board over and find the center at the top of the board and carefully hammer on the hanging hardware.

Ta Da!!! Then hang on your wall!! (Yes, I know it's pictures of Jarret and I and it is not our monogram, it's a gift for Leslie)

You'll notice I laid one of the corks down... I absolutely fell in love with it and thought this is the perfect cork to display for my fierce, wine lovin' friend!

Have fun TIPsy Tuesdayin'!!!
