Repurposed Wine Cork Valentine's Day Stamps
- Wine corks
- Foam hearts
- Hot glue, glue gun
We found the foam hearts used for this project at our local dollar store. Most dollar stores as well as craft stores will have something similar you can use.
1. Begin by adding a dab of glue to the back of the small foam heart, press it to the top of the wine cork.
2. Repeat this step adding one or two more hearts directly on top of the first. You want to layer them so they are raised up from the wine cork.
Note: For ours we used the smallest hearts in the bag. You can try using various sizes so you can get varying sizes of stamps. Just apply the hearts as we did here, using a little more glue.
3. Mix and match hearts to create the stamper portion of the stamp. Once your glue is dry, your stamps are ready to use. Be patient, because if you try to use them too soon the hearts will slide right off.
4. Press your wine corks into a stamp pad or paint and press to paper. Lift and you will see the heart imprint take shape.
These repurposed wine cork Valentine's Day stamps are perfect for decorating valentines and cards, or just for some craft time with your child. Either way, give them a try and see how fun a few wine corks can be!
