Cork Stick

How many of us have multiple wine corks laying around the house or know someone who would give you theirs? This next idea is a great way to use the cords and make something beautiful out of them. It's cheap, fun and very useful. It's also a great idea to give someone as a gift! 

For this you only need 4 things! 
1. A yardstick
2. Press-in Picture hooks
3. About 50-55 corks (depending on size)
4. A hot glue gun or tacky glue (hot glue works best)

The rest of this is simple! 

First, add your picture hooks (you know the one's that go ^^^^^^^) to the back of the yardstick. They should simply just press into the back of it. I used 3 - one on top, in the middle and at the bottom. 

Next, begin glueing down the corks. Roughly 50 corks should fill the yardstick up. 

Finally, pin your favorite pictures, to-do lists, recipes and more on your new and fantastic, slim bulletin!!
