Domestic Project-An idea for wine corks

Drinking all that wine has finally paid off!  I had originally planned to collect enough wine corks to cover a wall in a room in the basement that will eventually be a wine cellar.  BUT, this week I was in a pinch.  I realized that the curtain hold backs I had bought just weren't looking the way I had envisioned.

I started walking around the house looking for something to tie the curtains in the center rather than hook them onto the holdbacks.  Then, I had a total Martha Stewart moment. Ok, maybe it wasn't that brilliant but this idea was FREE!

Anyways, like I said I was walking around the house when I looked at our dining room shelf and saw our big vases of wine corks. Bingo!

Here's what you need:
-10 to 12 wine corks per hold back
-a shoe lace or ribbon
-power drill
-drill-safe surface

It was really quite simple.  I just drilled a hold in each wine cork and strung them along a shoe lace and tied it around the curtain. Like this:

It's amazing how I can be so satisfied from such a simple little crafty project.
