Handmade Holidays: Festive Bottle Stoppers

I’m kicking of a new series: Handmade Holidays to share some crafty ideas for making DIY presents this year.

First up, some festive bottle stoppers! I bought plain, unfinished bottle corks in the kitchen section at Target and colored in the stopper with a silver metallic Sharpie, followed by a light brush of glue and matching silver glitter. Once they dried all you need is a drop of super glue to hold an ornament in place on top of the stopper! These took under an hour to make, and cost less than $10 to make the whole set — I think they’d look great tied to a bottle of wine for a hostess gift during the holidays!

    LOVE! They would look great as a part of a holiday bar during a cocktail party. Can’t wait to give them a try.

    This is SO CUTE! I rather enjoy wine (ahem) and and my other bottle stoppers don’t have any of the pizzaz of these. Too cute!
