Ok. Ok. I don’t really mean lushes (we stopped that right after college). JK!!!
BUT, I am glad that they like a glass of wine or two – or in my old roommates case, doesn’t mind cleaning out our neighbor’s recycling bin on Tuesday nights because she knows THEY drink a lot.
You see, I’ve started crafting and DIYing for the wedding! We are t-minus 95 days until the wedding week! Which means – our living room now looks like a craftastrophe (I wish I could take credit for this word but it comes thanks to my intern supervisor last year). You know that moment where you look around and think, “Woah. What have I done.” I’m almost there. Almost. You see. I realized as the items piled up that 1) it would be expensive, and 2) I don’t want to go crazy.
So I’ve picked only a few DIY projects (5 to be exact). The rest, welp, they didn’t make the cut or are being professionally done.
First up, Table Numbers!
I saw these really cute wine cork place card holders and thought, “Oooooooh! How neat with our farm fall theme!”

Perfect as pie via Ruffled.
And then I thought, “Wait. Id have to saw the bottom off. Or get a slit in the middle…by…hmmm.” Too much. I knew this might turn into one of THOSE projects.
So I then decided to nix that idea. I mean one for each person – with a guest list that just hit the 200 mark – I said noooope. But what about for each TABLE. I mean even if all of them came would only be 20.
From that was born our table number holders that are AH-MAZING if I do say so myself:
It started with corks – lots of them. My bestie Bonnie is a wine expert, so I knew she’d help out – and instead she supplied about 80% of them. Most I’m sure she didn’t drink herself….maybe. The rest was thanks to my roomie Nancy who was brave enough to dumpster dive at our neighbors home.
Next I glued the corks in rows of two. Let them dry over night. Then glue three of the rows together to make a little six-pack! KEY TIP: Don’t glue the FULL length of the cork – you want the paper Table Number to fit in-between them. If you glue it shut …. well it won’t hold the paper.
A huge thanks to my friends – and their love of wine. So far I have 14 tables done….now who’s gonna help me get to 17. I’m still looking for 18 corks!
