Champagne corks usually come wrapped in a wire cage. This cage helps ensure that the cork - which is under high pressure - does not release from the bottle until it is time to open the bottle. Most people just throw away this wire cage. However, it's a great craft item! You can use this to make little chairs out of, for decorating, for party favors, for mementos of a fun evening, and even for place card holders!
I have two sets of instructions for the Champagne Cork Wire Cage Chair. Both were made after New Year's Eve celebration! One is made from a Pommery wire cage, while the other is made with a Moet & Chandon wire cage.
