Wine Cork Initial on a Canvas


This pretty canvas sign, with a wine cork initial, was a fun project that my daughter Megan made for an update to her bedroom. She had saved a bag of wine corks from a catering job and looked around on line for inspiration to make a DIY project that would incorporate these corks. This project and especially this font style for the initial caught her eye and although she had no clear instructions, she was able to figure it out with trial and error.

On a canvas, arrange the wine corks ( approximately 90) in the initial shape and font desired. With a hot glue gun, begin to glue the bottom and sides of the wine corks. Keep gluing until the initial is completely attached to the canvas. This will be heavy, but don't worry - the glue will adhere well to the fabric frame. Attach a ribbon and bow to finish. Allow the glue to dry completely before hanging.

This would also look great in a kitchen or a bar area. For Megan's wine cork coaster project look here.

Happy Wednesday!

  1. How cute! That looks really nice. I was just pinning a whole bunch of wine cork ideas the other day. I'm inspired :)

  2. Hi Vicky... This is adorable! Hate to admit it but I have enough corks to do the alphabet twice! Have a great day!

  3. I love this! I think I will have to try this! Thank you for visiting and for your lovely comments.


  4. Oh Megan is very clever I Love this. B

  5. I love all of the cork crafts out there! I was thinking it would take me years to drink all of that wine. But I have asked my sister, who owns a banquet hall, to start saving them for me. Your daughter did a lovely job!

  6. A girl after my own heart! Loves wine corks TOO! I have so many thru the years and would love to create this project. Hello new friend. I am also a empty nester right along with you.

  7. That is fantastic. I may have to start saving wine corks to make something like this.

  8. I love this! I pinned it and as soon as I drink a few more bottles of wine, I'm giving it a try!

  9. Oh, you have just given me a great idea for a gift idea! I've been saving corks for awhile awaiting a project. I want to do a "W" so it will be quite similar, just upside down and a little more spread. Thanks Vicki. Ann

  10. Super idea, Vicki. I have a big bowl of wine corks ready for a project. Just not sure where I would hang this.

  11. Too cute and creative! I would love for you to link up at my party. Just follow the link...


  12. Love this idea, I am doing a little bit of a French/Paris theme in some of my rooms. Thanks!

  13. This is such a great idea! I want to do this for our coffee (in the morning) and wine (in the evening) bar area. Thanks for sharing the "how to" with us. I saw your post over at the Liz Marie blog party.

  14. What a cute accessory for any room! This looks like a fun mother daughter project. I can't wait to do crafts with my little ones (once they get a little older) Stopping by from Inspire Me Please Weekend Blog Hop.

  15. What a great use of corks! This is so cute, thanks for sharing! Would you consider sharing this and any other projects you may have over at my Pinterest Party?


  16. Now I know what to do with all of the corks I have been saving. What a wonderful idea!

  17. So cute!

    It's wonderful to have you at Seasonal Sundays.

  18. So cute! I just bought a bag of wine corks at a damaged goods store. They were labeled Pottery Barn. Planning on using it in a similar project. Love how hers turned out! Thanks for sharing it with SYC.

  19. What a clever and creative ideaa. I love it. Thanks for joining Inspire Me. Hugs, Marty

  20. Super cute! I need to make something like that.

  21. I haven't been inspired to use all my saved wine bottle corks until I saw this project of your daughter's over at Stone Gable. Love it! I'm going to make one for MY daughter, and I know she'll love it too! Thanks!

  22. Too cute Vicki! Thanks for sharing this at my party this week! I am featuring this post on my Facebook page and pinning it to my You're Gonna Love It board on Pinterest too :-)

  23. LOVE this! Now I'm going to have to empty out my wine cork "boot" and make one! Thanks for sharing!


  24. I love it!! The ribbon looks perfect with it. You did a fabulous job. Just pinned. Thank you so much for sharing at A Bouquet of Talent this week. Have a wonderful weekend.
