As soon as I saw it, I fell so in love with this DIY from Cora of Miles, Papa and Me that I knew I had to make my own. Looking around my apartment, I noticed that I have lots of different kinds of bottles with cork stoppers, so I decided to make three different kinds! It’s a simple project, but it makes such a statement. Imagine having an entire table filled with crystal-topped decorative bottles at your New Year’s Eve party this year. I’m getting so excited just thinking about it.
The guy on the left is a wine cork – I just don’t have a wine bottle to put him in right now!
Crystals (I got mine from Mineralistic in Philly, but there are plenty of places to buy them online if you don’t have a crystal shop near you!)
Cork stoppers (preferably ones that fit into bottles you own!)
Paint (I used acrylic paint from A.C. Moore)
A hot glue gun
2. Use hot glue to adhere the crystal to the cork, with the flattest side of the crystal facing down.
3. Add more embellishments if you like! I had some dried plants at my desk, so I glued some of them to one of my corks.
That’s all there is to it! Now just make a hundred more and you’ll be all set with décor for your holiday party. :)
