Wine Cork Key Chains

Wine Cork Key Chains

IMG_1544

Take one cork, stack descending size washers of different colored metals to the top and bottom, and screw in an eye screw. They also look great if you simply use a screw on the bottom instead of dangling the bead. Then attach a key chain and you’re done. If you want a bit of extra strength glue the washers together.  Within just a few minutes you have some great stocking stuffers!
