I saw wine cork letters on Pinterest a few years ago and decided, “Hey, I’m going to make one of those!”
Not being a wino, I didn’t have access to a large number of wine corks so I asked family members and friends if they would save their corks for me. And they did! A few months later, I had enough corks for my monogram, but the corks kept coming!
Using a cardboard template that I made, I laid out all of the corks for the monogram exactly where I wanted them to go, then I fired up the glue gun and started gluing the corks together in the pattern.
