I believe almost everything can be repurposed, it just needs to be nicely stored until I can figure out what that repurpose is.
The problem is, at some point I have to do something with all this "stuff" or I'll end up running out of room.
A container of wine corks just waiting to be repurposed
After searching the internet for ideas to reuse my corks in the garden I came across a cute and rustic plant marker on the Huffington Post. The project is from Artsy Vava. You need only 4 items and no crafting experience.
Wouldn't you know it, I had everything I needed on hand.
The natural holes in the cork make this job easy.
Wrap the twine around the top portion of the fork handle. I found it was easiest to wrap the twine from the bottom up. If you hold a small piece of the twine against the fork you can wrap the twine up, securing the end of the twine as you go. Finish off at the top with a knot.
Tie a separate piece of twine over the knot and make a bow.
Write the name of your flower or herb on the cork with a permanent ink marker.
My quick and cute plant marker
1 cork down, 1 full jar of corks to go. I guess there's always cork mulching. Check out my blog on Feb. 03, 2013, The Miracles of Mulching.
Be well and happy Gardening.
