What Would You Do With It? Wednesday: Wine Corks

Welcome to this week's edition of What Would You Do With It? Wednesday. This week we are featuring wine corks. I have a HUGE collection of corks from years ago when both Allan and I worked in the restaurant business. At one point, we talked about making our own cork board.  We also thought about stringing them to make curtains. The only thing we have actually used the corks for is printing:

Dane and I also printed this sweatshirt for our friend CA with corks.

Here are a few fun ideas I found on the web:

Isn't this little man adorable! I found him over at Crafters Love Crafts.

These boats look like they would be great to float! I found them over at Cool Mom Ideas.

Last week's challenge was to use pizza boxes. I'm still looking for some great ideas! Please feel free to stop back and link up at any time if you find some! 

For the full list of previously posted items and upcoming challenges, visit the What Would You Do With It? Wednesdays Page.

On to this week's link up! Corks- It's your turn!

Do you have a great idea or post that you can share using Wine Corks? If so, please join in linking up!

Here are the rules:

1) The post MUST use Corks

2) The post MUST be family friendly.

There are no other requirements. If you would like, I would love if you linked back to his linky party, but it is not required. I would hope that you will investigate the links shared and visit some of the other blogs, but I'm not imposing any "blog hop/linky" rules. Please, if you do find great ideas and photos... Give credit where credit is due :).

If you have been featured and feel inclined, my featured button is available to grab from the sidebar.

Next week, I will feature my favorite link up and I'll be posting about CDs/DVDs! Hopefully, I'll be on time!

Love the little boats! Wish we had water somewhere to float them in.
I use to make reindeer out of them when I was a kid. We don't have any on hand at our house right now, rats.

I've been collecting corks for a while, so I'm happy to see the artwork you made with them. I will definitely do that! I'll have to come back and see what else everyone is doing.
