    DIY Cork Placecard Holders | Oh Lovely Day

    Today’s DIY is another from Hannah of The Homesteady, from her own wedding (which we’ll be featuring very very soon!). I thought that a nice simple DIY for the day after Labor Day weekend would be the perfect fit. These are easy to make and fun to collect, a great combination!

    My wife Kristie was all too excited to whip out the handsaw and create all 150 of our placecard holders—from wine corks! As far as collecting DIY supplies goes, we had a lot of fun amassing as many wine corks as we could. Our friends and family jumped at the chance to help our quest; my mother’s friends even pilfered a few from neighbors’ recycling bins!

    Using the handsaw, Kristie sliced off a sliver of each cork (on the long side) to keep it from rolling. Then, she cut a notch in the top of the cork, making sure to cut it at an angle and not straight up and down (this way, guests could read the placecards without having to bend down). I hand-stamped cards from Paper Source and we settled each one into its cork holder.

    This project added an extra handmade touch, and I know our guests appreciated it. My boss is keeping hers—cork and all—on her desk at work! 

    Don’t you love these for a rustic or vineyard wedding? They would also be perfect for a rehearsal dinner or dinner party. And if you missed it, be sure to check out Hannah and Kristie’s romantic countryside engagement session.

    •  Three things: 1. You've got one day left to enter my @mywildbird sling giveaway, so head over to my blog (link in profile) and tag your friends. 2. I was featured on @loyal_hana blog as part of their motherhood series, so if you want to give it a read and hear about my typical (hot mess) day or how I (don't) balance work and mothering head to their profile to find the link to their site. I pretty much live in their nursing-friendly clothes and was honored to be featured. 3. Charlie took this picture (and basically directed me for the shot) and it makes me really really happy   Putting the finishing touches on the boys' bedroom and had to stop to admire the magic that the morning light and their @babyjives mobile was making. ✨☁️⭐️❤️✨#charlieandcalsroomredo
       Can a person be your happy place? Because I'm pretty certain that Quincy is mine ☺️✨ #quincyrhys #thatdimpletho  This week was a rough one. I feel like I say that every week but this one really was. Today alone had me at my breaking point. All three of my kids seemed hell bent on driving me crazy. Quincy literally wouldn't let me put him down or leave the room without a major scream-cry fest. He rode around on the fuss bus allllll day. Tropical storm Calvin left destruction in his wake everywhere he went (if you follow me on snap/stories you got a little sampling but that was nowhere near the extent of it). At one point I went into a room away from my kids and sat in a chair and cried. Within three minutes one of them found me (of course) gave me a hug, and we were all better (except Calvin -- I think this is his permanent state ). This photo is my version of thinking happy thoughts. Bougainvillea vibes ✌️️✨
