DIY Wine Cork Art

 Tiny little worlds are all the rage in gardening today. Anywhere a contained garden can be created. Cooking, coffee or tea tins are perfect for the kitchen. Fill with potting soil and some delicious herbs. Light bulbs or glass terrariums are perfect for tiny seedlings just starting to sprout. But so are wine corks. These recyclable items are the perfect fit for starting your contained garden, indoor or out. You can even add a magnet and give them a start on the fridge. So many ideas for planting these days. Today CCB Crew Member, Lena of Bruksflickan designed a wonderful wine cork container garden using recycled wine box inserts, wine corks, Tattered Angels Naturally Aged Paint Kits and some great imagination…So lets get started….

I love recycling. I’m working on a cruise ship and i take lot of trash home like wooden wine box, wine corks, rusty scrap etc. Today I did this small window decoration for small plants.
Materials Used

Tools Used

  • Drill (power or hand power)
Step One

Using Tattered Angels Naturally Aged Granite Precious Stone Paint System, randomly age and distress two pieces of old wine box inserts. Let dry between coats. Add as much color and distress as you want, the choice is yours.

Next insert a small thin nail into the bottom of each wine box opening, set aside. Then attach two eyelet screws to the tops of each wine box opening, set aside.

Step Six

Add hardware chains to each eyelet screw to turn your piece, so that both pieces connect. Add more chain to the top of the first wine holder so you can hand it up.
