Wine Cork Menu Board

I saw a cute menu board posted on Pinterest a while back.  I knew I wanted to make one, but wanted one to fit into the wine & red theme of our kitchen. After lots of contemplation, I decided to use some of my wine works to make my menu.  I originally wanted them cut long, but I didn't communicate that to my MR when I asked him to cut them.  Opps!  So instead of doing one row with flat corks, I did two rows of corks cut in half.  I actually think it looks better this way.  

Here is the frame I started with.  I put the glass in the frame and hot glued two rows of corks onto the glass.  Then, I used scrapbook paper as the background.  After that, I used a Sharpie to write the days of the week on the glass.  I'll use an Expo marker to fill in my dinner choices. That way it will be easy to wipe off.   I decided to buy a frame holder to place on the counter instead of hanging it on the wall. This will definitely be a statement piece in our kitchen.
