Everyone enjoys a fine wine. Indeed, in some form or another, vino has been part of our shared human history and culture for many thousands of years. Of course, once you’ve finished that bottle of fine port or sherry, you’re left with an empty bottle and a left over cork. What to do? Well, in former times when the budget wasn’t so tight and your economic options were less restricted, you could have simply chucked the whole kit and caboodle away, and forgotten all about them. Nowadays, however, things may not be so rosy, and there may be a reason to save and recycle such formerly ephemeral and useless items. And, it turns out there is a reason: wine cork crafts!
Home crafting is the hottest new trend. It’s partly due to the ugly economic downturn we’ve seen in the past decade. However, there’s also a renewed optimism and pride in the capacity of average Americans to create their own home crafted goods. So, don’t throw that wine cork out! Let’s make some home crafted goods that will wow your family. Let’s knock your friends’ and neighbors’ socks off in amazement (and perhaps a bit of friendly jealousy!).
