Drilling for Wine

You know what's boring? Lame wine stoppers. Is that a thing? Probably not. But you know what's fun? Drilling leftover toys to turn them into wine stoppers. Why do I have leftover toys as a woman without any children? Why are you asking me so many questions. 

But hey, maybe you have kids so you have leftover toys. And if you have kids, you probably love wine. It might be your favorite toy, actually. So let's bring together both toys through the holy matrimony of drilling things.

Man this really got off course. 

 Haha, look at that sad ass doorknob one. Forgot about that guy. Hahaha.

Disclaimers! 

I don't...know how to drill. Did you know you need "drill bits?" Or a "drill bit?" Weird. But where there's a will (9 bottles of wine), there's a way. 

You can use different kinds of stoppers, as I said above. I happened to have a legit wine stopper that I think was a gift? But it was ugly so I took it apart. And there's always the cork wine stoppers. Their lives are short but sweet, much like the toys we put on them and the wine we drink out of them or something. 

Um, be careful. With the whole drinking wine + drilling shit. Seriously, don't get hurt guys. 


One bottle down? Let's drill stuff!

1.) Acquire your toys! Spray paint your toys! GLITTER your toys! 

2.) If you're using a cork as your stopper, you need to drill a screw through the toy and/into the cork. And then you're done! huzzah!

 He should probably be wearing safety things and not just holding the cork with his bare hands. Buuuuut, ya know.

3.) If you're attempting to use a legit metal stopper, you need to drill a hole into the toy first. But probably not like this:

 Definitely not like this.

4.) Now that there's an attempted hole in the toy, take the stupid ugly thing off the top of your legit wine stopper (see below) and then screw it into the hole you made in the toy (like above but better). 

 Ya know, I think this might have belonged to an ex. Hm. Anywho, I took that ugly R thing off.

5.) Tadaaa....!

 I really did have roommates when I took this photo. Promise.

5.) From here you basically just continue to drink wine, find toys and drill them into corks. It can get weird...or inspired. 

 Your call, really. 

Your call, really.
