Hey there…I hope y’all are doing well. I was super fortunate and had a couple of days off with Honey Bee – a rare treat. If you follow Jenn and I on Instagram then you saw just a tiny glimpse of highlights. It was a whirlwind of a trip – we drove country backroads and saw some amazing sights…beautiful farm land, lots of vintage houses, roadside vegetable markets and lastly the ocean. We then ventured to the lake where we met up with some wonderful friends and spent time catching-up, laughing, toasting and creating new memories!
Now I’m refreshed and ready to get back to my projects – like this one for DIY Wine Cork Hot Pads 🙂
Those of you that know me – or follow along our blog know that I love wine. I usually keep all of my corks and display them in my kitchen and dining room or make crafts with them. Now, before you take me to a meeting you need to know that each week my Honey Bee and I go to our favorite neighborhood Italian restaurant. Our favorite server gives me a bag of corks each time we visit. I am always grateful that at the end of our meal she presents me with my bag of treasures.
A few years ago I was browsing Pinterest and saw these super easy and functional hot pads made with wine corks. Unfortunately, I can’t find that feed. I am creating from memory of how I think the hot pads were made and my apologies to the creator of this craft.
Now, keeping it real – this is usually what I place hot baking dishes and casseroles on:
Pretty sad, right? Time to get busy. I went to the Home Depot and bought some clamps. They were located on the same aisle as PVC pipe. They were very inexpensive – the medium size were $1.00 and the large size $1.50
What is your favorite craft project using wine corks?
