Wine Corks and Roses, an Upcycling Project

I seem to have a weakness for collecting some strange things, for example, pretty glass jars and bottles.  I confess, I've been known to purchase store-bought jam for the jar. 


And corks... I can't resist snaffling an interesting cork.  I save them in one of my interesting shaped jars.  But let's be honest, there is no point in having these things if you don't use them. 


After gouging myself (for the um-teenth time) on a garden stake I got an idea.  Why not use them as cane-toppers?  


Simply cut the corks in half and carefully dig out a little hole for the cane.   Push the cork down onto the top of the cane.   Ta Dah!  No  more accidental garden impalements.

  4. Great idea, for I have also a collection of corks in the kitchen. And yes, those sticks in the garden are so dangerous.....I have gouged myself many times. I go for the corks now.
