STICK A CORK IN IT!!
Today's post is about an art project.
Read time: 5 minutes
Bonjour vous tous!!!
Looky at what I made -- A wine cork bath mat, obviously! Since the sun has been on strike lately, I thought it would be a perfect day to tackle a creative project I've been wanting to do for some time.
You see, I was on Pinterest. (Need I say more?) And I live in Bordeaux... and I have needed a new bathroom mat for a while. So, instead of going out and buying one, I decided to make one.
This was the result.
Plus, my sweet friends (who I lovingly call The Witches) collected wine corks special for more than a year.
I find this endearing and it warms my heart to know that my friends, who just may be winos, thought about me enough to save a little cork. It is the small acts that make a big difference! With my heart full of warm and fuzzy feelings (by the way, I was not drinking wine at the time) I just cut out a heart shaped pattern and starting gluing away.
In the end, it took me less than two hours to put together and I only burned myself once with the hot glue gun.

I found a tutorial on Pinterest, but in the end, I usually just follow my gut.
By the way, cork is waterproof and everytime we step out of the shower, our feet will get a little massage!
Until next time... take care of yourselves and remember: Life is too short to eat bad food!
Love -- Jenny!

Frenchified for Life
is a fabulous little lifestyle blog about truly embracing French life!
My intent is to simply inspire you to create something unique and beautiful in your everyday life. The French have this wonderful and annoying habit of seeing the world through rose colored glasses, might as well learn something from them!
That said, I lift my glass to you!
By the way, I mention the name Cachou (or The Cash) a lot, I'm referring to her...
