Wine Cork Lampshade

Ease Factor: 5 stars

  • Corks, corks, corks
  • Start with a lampshade you’re not using, if this is your first go round. (No sense in fucking up a good lampshade.)
  • Make sure your glue gun is ready to go.
  • Personally, I’d start from the top, but you can start wherever the hell you’d like.
  • Glue the side of the cork that you want stuck to the shade.
  • Keep going until you’re done.
  • Light that baby up and bask in its beauty!

  • Gather wine corks.
  • Take one or two with you to your nearest Dollar Tree/Store.
  • Find a frame to comfortably fit your cork(s).
  • Grab a hot glue gun/glue OR superglue.
  • Make sure all pieces fit comfortably BEFORE you glue them in. (Make adjustments as necessary.)
  • Glue the back of the frame, insert the pieces and VOILA!  You have yourself a lovely trivet that you made ALL by yourself!
  • Pat yourself on the back because this is probably the  greatest thing you’ll do all year, slacker.

Wine Cork Garden Markers

Ease Factor: 5 Stars

  • Get however many corks you will need for your plants.
  • Get a pack of toothpicks or skewers.
  • Stick the toothpick/skewer in the cork.
  • Use a Sharpie to mark which plant you want.
  • Stick it in your plant or gift it (lets face it, you don’t really have a green thumb anyway).

Ease Factor: 5 Stars

  • C’mon you already know what I’m going to say by now.
  • Soak the corks in alcohol for a week.  I’ve always used acetone alcohol, but I’ve heard of people using isopropyl alcohol.  Both are highly flammable, so I’m sure they both work equally as well.
  • Within the week, get yourself some cheap candle holders to put the corks in.
  • Once you’re set up, light’em up.
  • Since you’re probably an alcoholic, you’ll have enough corks to brighten your world for a lifetime ;o)

Wine Cork Frame

Ease Factor: 5 Stars

  • OK, so this last one is corks and glue at its simplest.  It could be much more depending on what you want to put into it.
  • Use paints, markers, feathers, glitter, etc, if you want to be creative. (Drink a glass of wine and smoke a bowl to get those creative juices flowing!)
  • Start gluing the corks wherever you’d like.
  • That’s as much as I’m going to tell you.  It can’t get more easier than gluing and looking at a fucking picture.  (Sorry, the ADHD is kicking in.)
  • Lastly, ENJOY YOUR BEAUTIFUL CREATIONS!!!  Show them to anyone who thinks you drink too much and tell them to Fuck Off.  You’re a gotdamned genius!
