Cork Message Board; made from Vintage Platter & Wine Corks

I found a unique vintage platter that (unfortunately) I was unable to clean up well, so I decided to use it for another purpose!  I combined my love of Barefoot & Sweat Pea Wines into a cork message holder.  I simply glued on the wine corks in a random order, added some ribbon to match the middle corks & to fill in the gaps (as I didn't want to cut any of the corks in half).  The last step was to add a strong picture frame holder onto the back...This was my first try at such a project - so, I look forward to your comments.


Pattern or design used: My own design - Urban Iron Art & Newtiques

I am a lover of wine corks so you won me over right there, but combining the green, black, and blue mixed with the natural was an unexpected and pleasant surprise.The ribbons are a beautiful finishing touch. Very well thought out and executed...great job!

Take care,
