3.  Stamp letters or other designs onto the painted cork in a contrasting color.  You can dry this with a heat tool or let air dry.

4.  Seal with Mod Podge Matte.  Gloss or satin would be fine too, I just prefer the matte look for this project.

4.  Twist the eye screw into place at the top center of the cork slice.
