Champagne Cork Magnets

When we got engaged, and when we were on our honeymoon, we opened bottles of champagne.  I have long been trying to figure out what to do with the corks that came from those bottles, and last weekend, I finally figured it out!

Make magnets, of course!

This tutorial really is so simple it doesn't even need a tutorial...

You need corks, of course...  ;-)

You also need a hot glue gun, and some magnets.  But -- a word to the wise:

Pay attention to your magnet strength.  These were much too weak to hold my cork onto the refrigerator -- which meant an extra trip to the craft store.  *Annoying*.  ;-)  Try to find something a little heavy duty for your keepsake magnet.

These were just the ticket!  Heavy and strong.  Woop!

You just need a thin layer of hot glue, then firmly hold the magnet to the bottom of the cork for a minute or so.  And then...

Proudly display your custom creation.  :-)

love, maria
