French Wine Charms – Made from Cork – Update Tutorial

A winery was selling cork wine charms. 
I had all the supplies on hand to make my own.

French Stamps!

French “grenouille” all in fun! The frog stamp does not come with the set.

My uncle Jacques calls himself a French Frog.

While I was at the winery they had these red bottles.

It makes the wine stopper look extra special.
I did a post on how to make them. It’s on my sidebar.

I adore the color ‘RED’ in the winter months!

To make the wine charms you will need:
nontapered # 9 corks
earring hoops
jump rings
wood and silver beads
StazOn inkpad

To cut the corks I used a bandsaw. You could use a hacksaw. Then I used a belt sander to smooth the corks. A hand sander would work just as good. Drill a hole in the cork with a small drill bit.

You can buy the French stamps on my sidebar.

Happy Crafting!

XO, Dee

  1. The charms look great! I immediately thought of your wine stoppers when I saw them. Paired with the a stopper, these charms would make a nice gift with a bottle of wine.

  2. Dee, I really like your wine markers . I am enthralled with all these cool stamps, too. I'd like to purchase some Frenchy script so I can "get my craft on." I am not very talented in that area. LOL. I have a TON of wine corks that I found at a yard sale- no I didn't drink 300+ bottles of wine! so I should attempt some wine stoppers, as well. You are such an inspiration!

  5. A rabbit after my own heart. I know what you mean about red glass. I love to put candles in reg class hoders for the Winter. Mysterious and cosy all at once! The cork wine charms are gorgeous. A set looped over a special bottle of wine and two glasses would make a lovely Valentine.
