Monogram Cork Letters

Monday, June 27, 2011

I first saw this idea pinned via this site on Pinterest and I knew that it was something that I had to do. This project was very easy and took a small amount of time to complete. I started off with a few pieces of cardboard letters from Hobby Lobby a B for Brendan and a L for Lauren. I then fired up my glue gun and was ready to go.

From there it was easy, I was given a large amount of corks from the fabulous Maegan of Chesterrific so I had lots of corks to work with and I just started to glue away. After all the corks were glued on the letters I had completed cork monograms! Thanks Maegan for the corks :)

Mandy Sellers said...

This is really cool! Did you cut the corks so they were uniform in size, or did they just come that way?
