For those about to craft…we salute you.
I know what you’re thinking, “Kenzi, you partake in DIY crafts? Aren’t you the girl who openly wept last night when putting up a simple wall decal in fear of ruining it in a spectacular manner?” Yes, my friend. That was I. But I’m writing today to tell you that DIY crafts ARE possible for everyone (and the wall decal turned out amazing, so, joke’s on you).
If this is an accurate depiction of you when approaching a DIY project, know that we are going to conquer this together. If you are inherently gifted in the art of DIY crafts, follow along to make an almost effortless cork photo strip!
- Hot Glue Gun
- Hot Glue Gun Stick (Or Elmer’s Glue)
- Thumb Tacks
- Wine Corks (I used about 35 and got them from my wine-drinking friends and family)
- Strip of Wood (size is up to you! I used a medium-sized strip of balsa wood)
- Printed Photos
- Glass of wine (obviously)
Pour yourself a glass of wine. Look at you, you’re crafting! You’ve earned this.
Apply a thin layer of hot glue (or plain white glue) to the cork and place on the wood strip in any position.
After the glue has cooled (or dried), start putting your pictures on with thumbtacks.
Hang or prop up your new cork photo strip and take a picture of it with your phone. Then, immediately post the photo to all facets of social media, bragging of your newly established status as an artistic visionary.
You did it!! I have never been more proud of you. (Largely because I do not know you, eliminating even the smallest possibility of my being proud).
Show off your cork photo strip by posting to Facebook here or tweet a pic to @BrightCellars, and we’ll tweet out our faves!
