A Craft For The Uncrafty!!

hellllllllo lovelies!

How about this for just about the easiest craft ever?

If you consider yourself a bit on the un-crafty side,
this one is for you.

Just drink a bottle or five of vino, save the corks and write the names of your herbs on them with a Sharpie, then push wooden or metal skewers* and…….

you have fun herb makers!

My basil is trying to take over this little section of the deck. I can’t wait to make some pesto when this gets a bit bigger.

See my updated post about wine cork herb markers here!

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Hi! Did you have a problem getting the Sharpies to write on the corks? It's like the cork keeps sucking all the moisture out of my Sharpies, and drying them right up (before I can even finish "Basil"). Love these, though, really want to make a bunch!

Hi Julie! I haven't had that problem....I wonder what it could be! I have made them every year for 4 or 5 years and use wine corks that I've saved. Maybe my red wine has some kind of chemical effect on the cork that makes it easier to write on?!

I am loving your blog and this idea is darling! I'm going to use it for a wine and cheese party I have coming up - how perfect will wine corks be as cheese markers!? Thanks for the idea!
