I've come to realize that I love to use common items for purposes other than what they are intended for. Case in point: I love jam and jelly jars as drinking cups. I wish i ate more jelly....
Another really cool Idea i've recently come across is to Make a cork board from wine corks! how fun!
Actually, these are sewn together (holes were pierced in the middle and they were connected by thread). However, that seems tedious and painful. I can't imagine cutting through cork to be any easy feat. (i recently cut up cinnamon sticks for a class project and i was ready to bust out with a power saw). Therefore, I would personally cut them using an exact-o knife, butcher knife, whatever, and then just superglue them to matboard or cardboard backing.
As part of my Apartment Renovation (to be posted SOON) I want to take this empty bottle of jack daniels I have and use it as a flower vase. I love the black and white writing and the square shape of the bottle.
I want to put in some vibrant red-orange daises!!! So chic!
if anyone else has any other ideas - PLEASE share! I'd be interested to know!
