champagne cork {name card holder}

champagne cork name card holder

This little idea might just take the cake for simplicity.

Are you looking for a creative way to be sure that Aunt Pat doesn’t sit next to Drunk Uncle at your holiday dinners?

Or maybe you want to be sure mom is closest to the kitchen to manage food replenishment and you’re closest to the bar, for obvious reasons?

Last year I showed you a neat way to use sea shells and coral to make some sea inspired name card holders.

Just take a 2-3 inch piece of wire, twist one end around like I showed you here, stick the other end in the champagne cork and call it a day.

Looks like you’re only prep work is drinking enough bottles of champagne!!  So hop to it. 😉

    Ooo, we could host a dinner party for a hundred (or more) of our friends using this project!! The hubs and I have collected our champagne corks since we first popped a cork together 8 year ago… lots of corks! Great idea… think I’ll have to host the fam and friends for the holidays now. :-)

      That is one of the cutest traditions I’ve heard. What fun mementos of the memories. Are you looking to do projects with them … or just keep collecting? Of course now I’m trying to think of other champagne cork ideas. :)
