Crafty Bottle Stoppers

The holidays are coming and many bottles will be opened. I thought this very simple craft would help to decorate your table or counter top. You could make a few to take as hostess gifts to your holiday parties too!










What You Need
Cork Stopper (available in various sizes at craft stores)
Your Choice of drawer pull ( screw should be attached)
Glue
Pencil

Let's Make Them! mark the center of the top of the cork with a pencil. Dab a little glue onto the bottom of the screw, and twist it into the cork at the mark. Depending on the pull type, you will either leave enough exposed screw to pass through the pull or thread the screw through the pull first.
Taa Daa! How simple and clever is this!
p.s. thyme and rosemary olive oil ( in photo) make great gifts.

If you make these I would love to see your photos!
