Guest Blogger - Chameleon Girls - Wine Cork Cork Board

We are so excited to be visiting Someday Crafts.

At Chameleon Girls, you never really know what you are going to get.

We are a lot like Chameleons because

Some days you might get


Dreamy Caramel


Book Lamp

But one thing for sure, whatever we do, we always have FUN!

Today we are sticking with crafts and going to show you another
fun, easy, simple and useful idea
or an amazing gift for that hard to shop for person who has everything.

Cork Board

How many of you have a collection of wine corks?

Wine corks are pretty and quirky.
Like this one in the center.

Gund Lach Bund Schu
Gun Lock Bun Shoe

It's OK if you don't.
You can order them off of Ebay, or ask your favorite cafe or bar if they have any they are tossing out.


Wine Corks

Hot Glue Glue
Glue Sticks (plenty)

Thick Cardboard to fit frame

First step is to figure out who is this gift for?
You or that special someone?

That's what I thought-

What room are you going to put it in?

Now gather all of your corks and place them two by two on the cardboard in frame (do not glue yet).

No, it's not Noah's Ark.

Fill the entire frame with the corks.

It will get very tight and you might have one row going straight across or you might need to shave a couple, but don't worry they will fit.

By filling the frame first, you will know if you have enough corks and if you like your design.

If you don't have enough or don't like the design, we will show you another version.

Now for the tricky part-
Pick out each cork and hot glue it into place.

Tutorial of swirl finger nails coming soon...
and Sarah says sorry for her un-finished nail.

Second version

Stenciled Cork Board

With this version, you will need a sheet of cork board
and glue into place where you would like the stencil.

You can free hand a design or even add a monogram.
We when with a Fleur de Lis.

TA-DA you now have a Cork Board.

You don't want to use plain ol' tacks do you?

How about making
Glass Tacks

Come visit us at Chameleon Girls and see
what caper we will tackle next.
