Bootlegger Bottle Stopper
Equally appropriate for intimate gatherings and holiday soirees. This wine stopper lets you have just one more before it's time to head home. Nothing tops off a late night in West Egg like a shimmering slice of amethyst. Add a bottle of your favorite bubbly and you have the perfect hostess gift.
- Gorilla Glue
- paper towel
- rubber band
- amethyst geode
- tapered cork
Gather your tools and materials. You'll need water, a paper towel, and a rubber band.
Before you break out the glue examine your amethyst and figure out which side you'll glue to the cork. Flat is best.
Dip the paper towel in water.
Dampen each surface slightly in order to help the glue bond.
Apply a thin layer of Gorilla Glue to the part of the amethyst that will sit on the cork. Note that the Gorilla Glue will expand to three times it's size (wow) as it bonds, so start with less than you think you'll need and add more as you need it.
Press the amethyst to the cork firmly and use a rubber band to clamp them together while the Gorilla Glue dries.
Double up the rubber band to secure the amethyst to the cork and set this aside as it dries.
As the glue dries add more into any cracks or large gaps. Alternately if there are spots where the glue is coming out of any crack wipe away with a paper towel. Keep an eye on it.
Remove the rubber band once the Gorilla Glue has dried. It should take 1-2 hours to fully cure. You can also start on the Zelda Resin Necklace, as it will use some of the Gorilla Glue...and have a mini party as you wait for the glue to dry.
