Wine Cork Initial

We had some open space on our wall in the kitchen. I will be getting married soon and my last initial will be an R. I had seen things like this on pinterest but I had no idea how to get started… so i winged it.

Here is what I used:

-1 exacto knife

-1 box cutter for the longer cuts

– a glue gun

– some corks to get starte

To get started I measured 24 inches from the bottom edges of the board. I then using a sharpie drew out a rough outline of the letter. I would recommend possibly printing off the size you want as I made some mistakes! When you’ve finished the outline carefully cut out the letter

To mount the letter on the wall I hung two angled nails at the top of the letter and in the crook of the R

Here is the latest progress picture of our cork initial:

The best part of this project is the work you need to do to make progress, A.K.A the wine you get to drink!!

Good Luck and enjoy!
