Today I want to share three easy crafts I used for our Thanksgiving decor, all inspired by red wine. The best ideas often come from re-purposing items you already have around the house and nothing says DIY like digging through your recycling.
First, I made place cards from wine corks, cardstock and letter stamps. Cut, stamp, and slice a thin slit into the cork and carefully slide the card into place.
Last week I designed another styled wedding session (photos coming soon!), and made these wine bottle candelabras for the Italian inspired tablescape. They worked out to be a perfect fit for our Thanksgiving table as well. All you need are empty wine bottles, a piece of burlap, taper candles, twine and an add-on of your choice. I used vintage keys from BHLDN.
With wine corks to spare, I created this simple display out of a trifle bowl and red pears. Easy and elegant.
So keep those corks and bottles next time you finish some vino and get creative with what you have around the house.
