I was having the crafty bug today, I hadn’t made anything for a bit. Then it hit me I bought a shadow box months ago to make a wine cork holder. I am in the process of redoing my Kitchen décor and I wanted this for the wine theme I am going for. I really like it and it turned out great.
You can find shadow boxes for pretty cheap, I recommend watching stores like Hobby Lobby, Michaels, or Joann’s. They constantly have sales on frames and shadow boxes. I got this 10×10 one at Joann’s for 50% off.! I can’t stand paying full price at those stores when you know they will put it on sale the following week or you can always use their in store coupons.
This project was quick an easy, I busted out my Silhouette Cameo (greatest purchase ever!) and laid out how I wanted the font and picked a photo. I used my Cameo to cut the letters using vinyl paper, then used transfer paper to move the font from my cutting matt to the shadow box.
You will need to decide where you want to cut a hole in your shadow box so you can easily drop the corks in, I recommend the top or back if you are not hanging it on the wall.
If you do not have a vinyl cutter you could always use a stencil and glass etching cream that would work well too.
I found the idea on Pinterest (duh of coarse), its from a seller on Etsy. So if you do not want to make your own she sells them.
Here is her shop https://www.etsy.com/shop/HuggerOrangeDesigns?ref=l2-shopheader-name
I didn’t want to spend that much so I decided to make my own, this project cost me $15.
I can’t wait to drink some more wine and fill it up 🙂
