I stuck them on to a bought wreath using a glue gun. The wreath was made of wicker and spiralled round which help as I followed the spiral with the corks.

“Daddy, we’re running out of corks, you need to drink more wine.” Well I wasn’t going to darling but I’ll force down some more claret if it helps you to finish your weird robot thing.

Well, I read a practical use for old corks in a newspaper gardening column.

Use them as supports for flower pots to keep them off the ground thus avoiding frost damage.

But won’t this damage the corks…:grin:

Put them in a glass jar, fill up with white spirit, close lid. Soak for a week or so. Pour spirit in another jar with new corks and repeat process. Use soaked corks as the best firelighters ever.
