Saw it. Pinned it. {Drank it.} Did it. - Wine Cork Magnets

Hey, hey, hey! Lone Ranger here! I say that because my lovely co-host, whoiscurrentlyonvacationinbeautifulnaplesfloridaratherthanhostingthislinkup, has taken the week off for her birthday. Fine. Pssh. Whatever, Katie. We don't need you anyways. (Kidding! You can come back now!)

So're stuck with lil' ol' me for today...hope that's okay with y'all?

Let's get started with this week's Saw it. Pinned it. Did it. project, shall we?!

This post inspired by:

Also inspired by wine. Lots of it.

Let me preface this by saying today's project was so easy even Oakley could have done it. Yes, that easy. But per usual, she was busy playing or modeling or something of the sort so I was left to finish out the project for us.

Like a tiger, Oakley. Like a tiger.
Ok. Nevermind. Like a ridgeback?

Not ONLY could this go down as the simplest thing ever but dare I mention it only consists of 3 ingredients?
Hot glue gun | wine corks | magnets

Unless you're oddly slow...or drunk (hey, it's possible?) know where I'm headed with this.

We're going to make magnets out of wine corks, people.

Step one. Drink 4 bottles of wine and grab a couple of knives. 

Step two. Cut your corks in half, hotdog style; careful to not slice your hand open. The last thing I need is a letter from your attorney suing me over a Pinterest project...

Step three. Drink more wine. 

Step four. Hot glue magnets onto the backs of your halved wine corks.


There you have it: wine cork magnets!

Flipping genius, right? Too bad I can't take the credit for this one.

  1. This is an adorable idea! Might have to steal it from you! = )

  2. what a cute idea (and excuse to down several bottles of wine!) and Oakley's little skin wrinkles are beyond adorable.

  3. Adorable!!

    I appreciate that you used the term 'hot dog style' because I did the other day and my husband looked at me like I was crazy.

  4. Love this project! My favorite part is step 3: drink more wine :)

  5. "drink 4 bottles of wine and grab some knives" .. seems legit :) Super cute !!

  6. so friggin' cute. and looks so incredibly easy. i love it!!! :)

  7. Love these! They turned out so cute & seem pretty easy to make! Would go perfect in a house warming basket with a couple bottles of wine!

  8. This is an awesome idea! I have started to save wine corks figuring I would use them for something...Pinning this idea!! Thanks for hosting the SPD link up! xoxo, Lindsay

  9. THIS IS AWESOME!! they came out amazing!

    I want to make these now. Especially because in order to make them ya gotta throw back a few bottles :)

    oakley is giant holy swear word. She is so cute


  10. Love love love this idea! Super cute. Definitely pinning so I can remind myself to make these.

  11. Oh hell yes. This is my kind of craft. If you don't drink, you don't have all of your materials. Yes ma'am, you're so smart!

  12. I love it! So cute, cute, cute. Definitely gonna copy this one sometime soon!

  13. Super cute!!! And I def have enough corks to do this!

  14. SO cute! Although I'm not sure 'drink four bottles of wine and grab a knife' really belong in the same sentence!;)

  15. i LOVE this! I saw one tutorial that said to soak the corks in hot water to keep them from breaking apart. But yours seemed to have stayed together quite well! I will be doing this later :)

  16. Love this! I was trying hard to finish my wreath last night to participate but it just wasn't happening. Since it's "seasonal" or themed, I guess I'll have to pretend it's not old when I post it in time for the 4th of July ;)

  17. Love this one! I will have to down a few bottles before I can do this, but I accept your challenge!

  18. Btw...drink wine, grab knives? I really and truly LOL'd at that ;)

  21. This is really adorable. dangit. I need to do this!

  22. Oh my! Can't wait to make these. And your puppy is beyond words... so stinking cute.
