DIY Wedding Favors - Wine Bottle Stoppers

At Favors With Love we like to share ideas that we think might be useful to others. One inexpensive and heartfelt way to add favors to your event is to actually put the blood, sweat and tears into them and make them yourself. I really like the antique/vintage look of this one!


Materials:
wine cork
decorative drawer pull
craft drill
screwdriver
decorative metal initial (found in the scrap booking section of craft stores)
thin wire-edged ribbon
card stock
hole punch
oval punch or scissors
Steps:

1. Drill a hole in the center top of the cork; make sure the hole is slightly larger than the stem of the drawer pull.

2. Use a screwdriver to insert the pull until secure.

3. Punch an oval of card stock or cut an oval by hand. Punch the oval with a hole punch at the center top.

4. Attach a metal initial backed by the card stock oval to the wine stopper with either a thin piece of wire ribbon or a scrapbook metal curlicue. Curl the wire-edged ribbon's ends.
