Heatwave Project

My new corkboard:

All it took was a two-day heatwave, 200 wine and 4 champagne corks from freecycle, six hot glue sticks, and a pile of bad 80s horror tv on DVD.

If you attempt one of these make sure you sort your corks by size and trim off any stray pieces left by the corkscrew.

Now I can tack up all my weird paper in style.

I've been collecting corks for some time now, but alas, the dearth of available flat space leaves the project undid at the present time. By the time i get around to actually doing it, I might be able to make about 30 of the damn things.

This has been on my undid list for about 7 years.
