I originally saw this wine cork idea here. I thought it would be perfect for the outdoor shelf I built a couple of months ago. There aren't many materials needed for this project: wine corks, a wooden letter, and a glue gun. However, it took quite a while to collect all the corks I needed.
I found the wooden W letter at Michael's.
After giving it a light sanding job, I spray painted it dark brown.
I started by arranging the corks over the entire letter, making sure I spaced out the plain corks and the stained corks. Once I had them in place, I hot glued them one at a time. Totally easy!
