I am going to be selling at t wine festival in September, so thought I would get out that collection of corks I have accumulated from the thrifts shops and my Broski’s house.

I added some beads, buttons and the altered washers I made recently.

Had to stop and make some more washers!  That and locate that large Ziploc bag of corks I have…

They have more to be done to them, but it is a good start.

I had seen a tutorial somewhere on the web to make these and thought I would give it a shot.  I had purchased the washers a long time ago at an estate sale for $1 for like a thousand.  After seeing the tute I thought I would give it a try. 

I used Mod Podge to put the text from a French book on the front and back of the washer.  After they were on the page (20 of them), I folded up the other half of the page after slathering the back with more Mod Podge.  I then took my brayer and rolled it over both sides several time to be sure they were tightly adhered to the page.

I then put Mod Podge Dimensional Glaze on top to give it a bit of depth.  I am working on some cork necklace for a wine festival I will be at in early September.  This will be on the top and bottom of the cork, so I only put the glaze on one side.  

I love how they came out!
