I have been saving the corks from various events and celebrations for years, not really knowing what to do with them, but also not having the heart to throw them away. Then inspiration struck. Little DIY champagne cork ornaments for a special kitchen Christmas tree.
For each ornament I used a screw eye. (Honestly, just got these out of Hubby's garage, so I have no idea what size they are - sorry!) Screwed them in to the top of the champagne cork, tied a sweet little ribbon, et voila, c'est tout!
Simple as can be, but love hanging them on the mini tree while reminiscing each accomplishment, life event, or fun little brunch with friends. I can only imagine that as the years go by we will have to get a larger tree, but for now, it's perfect, and still have room for more.
