Have I had too much wine, you ask? In fact not. By heredity, I have been cursed with the Asian affliction of poor alcohol metabolism. It is a factual genetic mutation and you can read about it on Wikipedia here and on Wise Geek here, if you want an explanation on why most of your Asian colleagues were flushed red in the face from a sip of wine during the office holiday party last month. For that reason, I’m no big wine drinker at all, despite what the evidence says in the above picture or in my craft room (a never-ending stash of wine corks).
I loved this project because it took no more than five minutes to complete and I got to use my drill. Yes, it’s as simple as that. Carefully drill through the center of your wine corks (better if you have a drill press), and slip over a pen. But please — no drinking and drilling.
