Wine Cork Bracelet

Well, it's not exactly Tiffany's...


but I'm thinking this little bracelet is a lot more fun!



In all the turmoil this week of moving my craft room, I found my stash of wine corks.



Now here's how you do the next step. You go into the kitchen and grab a big knife and then your husband comes in and tells you that you're going to cut your finger off and takes over. I love when things work out like that! Oh, and then you go grab more corks because he's cutting them crooked.



I used the smallest little screw things (technical term) and screwed them in both sides of the cork piece.



And then started linking them together with the rings.



When you get it to the size of bracelet you need, add a clasp.



That's it, so simple!
Stay tuned, necklace is coming next.

I'm joining these awesome parties this week.

I have so many wine corks (don't be judging me, lol) that this might just be on the list of projects to tackle, lol.

Now I know what to do with the corks I've been saving. I've seen trays made out of them, but I like this much better. All I have to buy are the screw thingies! Thank you for such a great idea! Happy New Year!

LOL. Now THAT is cute!! :-) It's been so much fun getting to know you, Terri. You've got great ideas and I know I'll enjoy 'A Creative Princess' in 2012. Hope you have a wonderful new year. Thank you for being a faithful reader and commenter on Cranberry Morning!! :-) I'm going to work at getting that Etsy store up pretty soon.

How clever! I love that you had to get your husband more corks because he was cutting them wrong. I would so do that!:) Thanks for linking up to our first party girl.
