Another Reason to Drink Wine

The Wine Cork Navy
Ever wondered what to do with all those cork toppers from the bottles of wine that were purchased from Harter House?  I have seen a multitude of projects from friends to find another use for wine corks from cork boards to keep messages and photos, to coasters for a coffee table.  Here is a fun project you can do with the kids that will keep them busy on a hot summer day.
Building the Navy.

Materials you will need:
Wine Corks (collect them in a baggy in your kitchen)
Hot Glue Gun
Craft Foam
Small Eye Screws

Step 1:  Line up 3 corks together and hot glue them in the form of a small square.  It doesn't have to be perfect.

Step 2:  Press and twist the eye screw into the front of your cork raft.

Step 3:  Using the craft foam, cut it into the shape of a sale and impale it onto a toothpick.

Step 4:  Press the end of the toothpick into the top of the boat.  Press a small dab of hot glue to hold the toothpick in place

Step 5:  Tie an end of the string to the eye screw.

Step 6:  Find some water (river, creek, stream, pool, bucket) and have fun!
