Wine Cork Votive

I Love Wine.

A couple of weeks ago a girlfriend and I went to this cute wine bar... very sheek and modern! On our table was this adorable wine work votive, of course I was inspired and wanted to make my own!

So this is the original one. I wasn't to fond of the bells (seemed to holiday'ish)...

...and ta da! Here is my edition! Instead of using the bells I just weaved ribbon inbetween.

I guess you could use a collection of wine corks, I am too picky and had to have them be all the same. I just used flower wire to assemble and purchased a clear votive at target for $1.

Which do you like better? The bells? Or Ribbon? What would other ideas could you use?

Leave a comment, tell me what you think...


  1. oooh i like i like! and of course you would have to have all matching corks :) haha but i like the bells too though! maybe you could put something like a small decorative pendant in the middle of each instead of bells? either way it's cute :)

  2. cute!

  6. Great improvement with the ribbon! I am thinking i need to save some corks! and find some green ribbon:)

  7. That is pretty nifty. I'm not very crafty, but I think even I could do this. Ohhh idea...instead of wine corks use flowers and then waa-laa you have instant teacher gift. Bet my girls would love making that.
