We’ve all been there. You’re checking out some collection of amazing DIY projects on Pinterest and you start thinking “I can totally do that,” so you embark on a brave new craft project. A few hours (days) later you’re looking at the finished product, and the realization sinks in – your craft skills haven’t evolved since 4th grade. Don’t worry, because there remains hope. As an avid wine drinker you probably have a vase filled with spent corks, so why not do something with them? Below we gathered some inspiration for you, so open a bottle and channel your inner Martha Stewart. Even if you don’t have a crafty bone in your body you should be able to master these.
