Arts&Crafts - Wine Stoppers
Around the holiday season, giving wine as a hostess gift is common and always very welcome. Why not up the gift idea with a fun wine stopper such as the trophy examples shown. Other toppers might be small china figurines, plastic toys, golf balls, billiard balls and glass dresser knobs.
  • DIRECTIONS TO MAKE WINE STOPPERS

  • ■ First, use a drill to make a 1/8-inch-wide hole halfway down into a new cork ($3.99 for 30; winemakingsuperstore.com)
  • ■ Next, twist off the top of a vintage trophy (typically a few bucks each at thrift shops and garage sales).

  • ■ Apply superglue to the underside of the trophy top's base and the screw that extends from it.
  • ■ Insert the screw into the cork and twist the pieces together until flush and a tight bond forms.

  • ■ Allow one hour of drying time before using your prize design.
