Also since we've moved we've decided to design our kitchen in a wine theme. We've been searching for unique wine themed art to place in our kitchen, but everything we love is out of our price range.
Finally I came up with an idea to make fun wall art with an old window box frame I had laying around and some corks.
The Final Product
The corks in the window box look so unique and it was very inexpensive. I had an old window box frame I wasn't using, but they sell them at Michael's, Joann's or any other frame shop.
Window box frames come in all different shapes and sizes, so you can find one that meets your needs.
We didn't have enough corks (yet) to fill the window box, but we were able to find bags of corks very inexpensively on EBay, but you can also find them at craft shops. The ones we found on EBay were used, so a lot of them were dyed red from the wine which adds a nice touch of color. We used approximately 150 corks for a 14 x 16 frame, but the number would vary depending on how you chose to position the corks. Eventually we want to transfer our own cork collection into the window box when we have enough....time to start drinking up!!!
You can position the corks however you want, we didn't need any glue to position ours.
It was such an inexpensive and east project and it looks great on the wall.
Happy Corking :)
