New Use for a Wine Cork

If you’ve read a wedding magazine or blog in the past year, you’ve probably seen this idea already – but I love it too much not to share it here. Using old wine corks as place card holders is a charming re-purpose for all kinds of gatherings – even a small dinner party. It’s simple enough to DIY (the steps are all laid out here) and a great way to show off the corks you’ve been saving from all those “special bottles” over the years (side note: does anyone else do this??).

If you’re not in the mood to make your own, you can buy a set of generic ones here. They’ll look like this:

Or, you could take it one step further, and order some customized ones via Corkey Creations. Talk about a specialized business! They’re pretty affordable, and probably the way to go if you’re looking to do this in large numbers for a wedding reception.
