At the end of the day, sometimes there is nothing better than a glass of wine with my husband. It’s a relaxing ritual we do to reconnect and spend some quiet time together talking after the kids are asleep. Sometimes we just sit in silence on the couch, snuggled up with a glass in my hand and others we are excitedly updating each other on what happened earlier that day. I love this ritual and it’s often my favorite part of the day. In today’s tutorial, I’ll walk you through how to make the experience even more amazing with a DIY Crystal Wine Stopper.
I absolutely love the crystal trend lately. I’ve used them in other projects like this DIY Crystal Cuff and the Crystal Statement Ring in the past and don’t plan on stopping anytime soon. Honestly, I don’t think there is a single room in my house that doesn’t have a crystal of some kind in it. Why should our wine be an exception?
These DIY crystal wine stoppers make great hostess gifts, Christmas gifts, or thoughtful mementoes. You could easily make several within an hour and keep some for yourself, and give some to a friend.
You could buy pre-made crystal wine stoppers but personally, I’d rather DIY and save the money. Below are some of the inspiration crystal wine stoppers we can mimic.
This project is seriously SO easy and takes less than 10 minutes. Here’s some shoppable (aff.) links to gather everything you’ll need.
When I say this project is simple, I truly mean it. I almost feel silly posting a tutorial!
A quick note before you get started: Be sure to use the E6000 glue in a well-ventilated area. This glue is incredibly strong but also has a strong smell that could make you light headed. Once your project is dry, the toxic smell will be gone and you will be left with a durable bond that should hold up to regular use with no problem. In the meantime, open the window!
Squeeze out a small, pea-sized glue bead onto your cork. Press the crystal to it and rotate to spread the glue throughout the top of the cork. Balance the cork standing up to dry. Let it set overnight to be sure it’s ready to use.
In between uses, hand wash with soap and water. Don’t put it in the dishwasher because the cork may get damaged.
I hope you guys really liked this little DIY. As always, if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to let me know in the comments below!
