Imitation=Flattery: Wine Cork Letter (Trivet)

What to do with all the wine corks that I collect?  I was sure there was some cute craft out there where I could put them to good use. 

I saw these adorable wine cork trivets

However, they wanted you to sew them together.  Why do that, when you can hot glue them?  I ended up making a K for my 'K Wall'.  Yes, K is a very important letter in our house.

VERDICT:  Very cute and easy.  I think the sewing would be necessary if it was something you were going to use all the time as a trivet.  The hot glue however is perfect for something I'm just hanging on the wall.  And a hint, it looks great if you use wine that was actually in a bottle instead of buying them from a craft store.  It adds so much more color and variation.
