Father’s Day right around the corner! Have you found your dad a gift yet? If not, I have an easy, last-minute idea for you: DIY Father’s Day Trophy Wine Stoppers. I’m a big fan of edible (or drinkable) gifts, especially when combined with something fun and useful that will last once the rest of the gift is consumed. In this case, I took a bottle of wine, wrapped it with a custom Father’s Day label, and turned the cork into a clever wine stopper that lets your dad know he’s the best!
To make the wine stoppers, I took apart some childhood trophies. This is a great way to give new purpose to something sentimental, that you and your dad may share great memories from! If you don’t have a box of old trophies lying around, you can also check your local thrift store.
Disassemble the trophies by unscrewing the top from the base. The trophy top should have a screw built in, as a stem.
Next, drill a small hole in the center of your cork, about halfway down. If your cork already has a hole from where the corkscrew went in, that works just as well. Screw the trophy top into the hole you pre-drilled. Use a little superglue to secure them together, if necessary.
Wait for the glue to dry, and just like that you have a shiny new wine stopper! You can make a bunch of these, or just choose one trophy top to go with your dad’s favorite bottle of wine. Either way, it’s a fun way to let him know he’s your #1 this Father’s Day.
