Leftover Champagne, corks, wire cages, bottles all can be reused! This post links to various recipes using Champagne, and DIY projects for corks, cages, and bottles. [Pictured: hooded wire cages (a.k.a. muselets) from the tops of Champagne bottles made into mini-chairs good for use as place card holders.]
Here are my Club Little House items, ready to be painted, distressed and sent on their merry way. I should probably mention that I didn't buy these chairs. They are made of popsicle sticks from my own pattern. It took about 10 sticks for each chair, plus three flat toothpicks for the supports on the chairback.
