DIY Valentine's Day Wine Cork Hot Plates ~ FAIL

Don't forget to stop by and Like my Facebook Page and Follow me on Twitter!

Create a few wine cork hot plates for the Valentine's Day dinner you're planning to cook for your sweetie! ..... well, that's how this post originally started. Unfortunately, I didn't think this one through. :( Below are the steps I took, with notes as to where I went wrong, and hopefully these tips will help lead to a better outcome when creating your own hot plates. ***UPDATE ~ check out how I fixed things here
This is a quick simple project that only requires a hot glue gun {don't use hot glue! Try using super glue!}, a few wine corks and a few designs (hearts, X and O).
I used my stained red wine corks to fill in the heart template and then started gluing them together.
Once completed I tied a ribbon and twine around the outside.
I had a few wine corks leftover... ok, I literally have bags of corks waiting for the next project.... so I made an X and O too.
And they were ready to go!
Start planning that dinner for your sweetie!
And then I used them.... and I realized when hot glue reheated... it melts. Therefore ruining my hot plates. {Try super glue!}
