Love Potion

Since many people fall in love over a bottle of wine, it must be a love potion.

door knob (mine just happened to be an old porcelain one)
cork (#6 for soda bottles)
gorilla glue
rub ons
StazOn ink pad
permanent marker
clear spray paint

sand paper (optional)
wire brush (optional)
rubber stamps

Clean the shank on the door knob with sandpaper and a wire brush. Spray with clear spray paint to prevent rust. Wet the cork and squeeze a tiny bit of Gorilla Glue on the end of the door knob shank.
Clamp together for an hour or two. Remove from clamp.

Use rub ons, rubber stamps with StazOn ink and/or a permanent marker to write your message on the door knob. Spray with clear spray paint to protect the label.

Place the stopper on your favorite wine and serve it to your sweetie on this day of love.

Genius! A vintage door knob wine cork, who else but you could have come up with this one? An antique key might look great hanging around the neck of the bottle....Thanks so much for sharing on Craft Schooling Sunday!

Thoughtfully Blended Hearts said...

Such a great project...finding a white porcelain door knob should be a real task!!! Any suggestion for a different type of doorknob???
Have a beautiful day!!!

Lori Deming said...

Adorable!!! These would make great Christmas gifts.

thanks for sharing.


Gail said...

It is surprising how many of these porcelain door knobs are lurking in antique and junk shops, but it's not as easy as picking one up at HD. You really only need a smooth surface so any door knob would do but they sometimes come with flanges, etc that are not useful. I would recommend a large drawer knob.They have large wooden ones that would be perfect with a coat of paint.

Tiff said...

I love this project! It would make a great hostess gift along with a bottle of wine!

Desert Shelter Girl said...

Great project! I think this would like good also on a drawer pull.

Nikki said...

OMG, seriously, I could not love this more!!!! What a brilliant idea! Thanks so much for linking it up to gettin' crafty on hump day! I really appreciate you all sticking with me with the new text linky :)

Jayna Rae said...

WAY cute! I would totally make one if I drank wine enough to need wine corks.


great idea really creative

Piorra Maison said...

Nice. Looks fantastic. great idea.

Betsy said...

This is a great idea! I used to be known as "the doorknob lady" so it would be perfect for me, I'm a wine lover too. Good idea to clamp those two together.

Amanda @ Ninth Street Notions said...

very cute idea. Just love it. And thanks for mentioning the clear spray paint to protect it. I would have wondered what to use. Come check me out sometime if you want at Ninth Street Notions.
