Patricia Vilanova Harris- The Annual Champagne Chair Contest by Design Within Reach (DWR) always brings out the most creative attempts as to what can do with a cork and a bit of wire. The rules are simple yet strict: Using only the foil, label, cage and cork from not more than two Champagne bottles (sorry!), contestants need to create an original miniature champagne chair.
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.]
