I hope everybody had a nice Mother's Day. I sure did. I truly am blessed with my two boys- who are growing up incredibly fast- and my darling hubby- who is my best friend in the whole world.
Today I got out my collection of corks- I believe I have a lifetime supply! It looks like I have a problem, but really I have picked them all up at yard sales and thrift stores.
I have been wanting to try to make a cork covered letter. I've seen several different types on Etsy. I used a chipboard letter that I got at Hobby Lobby.
|I added this little snack unbrella to the bottom. I can't decide if I like it better this way or plain. What do you think?|
|I'm planning to give this letter to a friend and I wanted her to be able to hang it. I used my glue gun and attached a tab from a soda can. I've already tried it out and it will work beautifully to hang the letter.|
Thanks for stopping by and God bless.
EDIT: I kept looking at my letter "P" trying to decide what was missing. Finally I figured it out! Here is a pic of how I fixed it- I cut up thin layers of wine cork and glued them to the edge of the letter. Now you can't see any of the chipboard beneath, and the whole letter looks like I made it from cork.
|I think it looks better this way.|
|You can see the edge a little better from this angle.|
