Cork Art for the Cork Dork

Valentine's Day is approaching. Who cares, right? We don't celebrate Valentine's Day, so that makes it a perfect opportunity to surprise Greg with a gift! Hehehe... That said, buying a present for him has always been a great challenge for me. One might think what can be the challenge buying a present for a guy, just get a bottle of booze. Well, Greg is a wine professional... in fact calling him a Wine God wouldn't be much of an exaggeration! Therefore gifting him with a bottle of wine can't ever be an option for me, as I know nothing about wine.
Since I had a hard task in my hand, I thought I'd better start looking for a unique present as early as I can. After a little search online, I found this image with a link to Etsy. It was going to be the perfect gift, as it was related to wine and love. So I followed the link and saw that it wasn't available any more...bummer! It would have made the perfect gift.
Giving a second thought, it looked easy enough to do, so I decided to give it a try. I grabbed some wine corks, a hot glue gun, a pencil, white acrylic paint, a black foam board to use as a background and a frame to display the cork art.


After printing the label, I pinned it to the cork art. But I wanted to display it in a nice frame. The frame I found at Put & Take was the perfect fit, but it needed a redo. You can find the details of that redo on our blog post: Ornate Frame Makeover
Once I completed the frame's redo, I placed the cork art in the frame and secured the back using a point driver. Here is the finished cork art for the Cork Dork.
I love it! Not only is it a great wall decor, but also a perfect Valentine's Day or anniversary gift!
