What you'll need:

  • 1 shadowbox picture frame with stand
  • Hot glue gun
  • Dozens of wine corks
  • Sharp-edge knife
  • Marker
  • Paper
  • Push pin

How to:

  1. Remove the glass from the picture frame, leaving the cardboard back.
  2. Glue 2 corks together vertically at the sides. Repeat, making multiple sets.
  3. Wedge a set of 2 into the top corner of the picture frame.
  4. Place another set of 2 next to the first set of 2, facing the opposite way to create a pattern (you can glue the corks into the menu if you need better placement!)
  5. Repeat step 4 until the whole picture frame is full. You may need to cut a few sets of 2 in half vertically to fill out the whole frame, depending on the size you're using.
  6. Write out your cocktail menu on a piece of paper,
  7. Fasten the menu to the cork picture frame using pins.
  8. Sit it upright and place on your bar!
