Kris's Wine-Cork Board (Now Updated with Video!)

I was inspired to create this project by my best-friend's husband, who's a level 2 sommelier.  With all of the wine corks he had around, he made a simple (but huge) wall hanging to put over their couch.  I decided to try it out both as something decorative and something functional and this is what I came up with.


I used clear stamps for it all.  The letters (du vin=some wine) were stamped with acrylic paint with some Smooch for accents and the corner designs were stamped and then embossed in red.


This one was done a little simpler since it was going to receive some wear and tear.  The keynote product I used was Deco Art Triple Thick Glaze (Plaid & Krylon also make similar products).  Every one coat of this is equivalent to three coats of a traditional finish.  I LOVE IT!  It's also great on paper flowers to give them a great luster.

This is a simple project, but there are a few tricks to making it work, so the video for this project is now here!!

  1. Really nice! I've been collecting wine corks for a while to make a hanging with and haven't done it yet. Thanks for the reminder. This will prod me to do something with mine.
