Got corks? Get crafty
I’ve always considered myself a crafty person. I love DIY projects and making things out of random leftover goods. Recently, I decided to do something nice for all the people in the office here at Ponte. I looked up some random things on Pinterest and found some cute ideas, but finally settled on cork key chains. Unfortunately, I didn’t really like the way any of the websites I found explained how to make them. What’s a girl to do? Write her own explanation, of course!
I’m not exactly a “direction follower”; I guess that’s the artist in me. Then again, with DIY or any art project, one should feel out how it should be done and use their own artistic judgment. That’s exactly what I did with this project. After I made them I realized how many possibilities you could have with such a simple project!
This might possibly be the easiest DIY craft you will ever do. Feel free to follow my directions here, but by all means, put your own fun spin on it if you’d like.
Supplies that you need:
- Wine cork
- Key ring
- Eye Screw
- Optional— additional eye screw, beads or charms, string
Step #1: Take your wine cork and screw the eye screw into the side that already has a hole in it from the corkscrew. Be sure to angle your eye screw a little bit so that it is actually screwing into the cork or else the screw will just pull out.
Step #2: Screw an additional eye screw on the opposite side of the cork
Step #3: You could attach charms directly to the bottom eye screw, or you could tie string to the bottom eye screw and attach beads to create more of a dangle look!
Last step: Attach the key ring through the hole of the top eye screw!
And you’re done!
