I fell in love with the beach and sand dollars in Southern California. However, I live in Northern California. Wine country. I’m not a heavy drinker, but I don’t know anyone, myself included, that doesn’t enjoy touring wineries. I prefer sweet white and dessert wines and don’t like reds. The menu selection is a little bit smaller and usually I volunteer to be the DD for my friends. I also enjoy going to different gift shops and seeing all the wine bottle toppers and charms. During Christmas I enjoyed seeing all the decorations. My roommate even made some Christmas tree ornaments out of wine corks. And then it hit me! Why not make wine clocks?
Using a cigar cutter, I cut the tops off of wine corks. I can use red or white ones pending the design/colors of the clock. Sometimes I like to use red for 12, 3, 6 & 9 and white for the rest. I love how the red wine stains the corks and think it gives the clock a little bit extra.
I started with a couple of basic designs and encouraged friends and family to come up with their own slogans. I had several Christmas orders for friends all over the country. You don’t have to live in Ca to enjoy a glass of wine!
