OT- Cork plugs for salt & pepper shakers

Posted by kelpmermaid (My Page) on

Sorry that this really isn't directly holiday related, but I know that some of you make wonderful thrift shop finds and might know where to find something I need. I found these great salt & pepper shakers recently; they are little abablone shells. The problem is that one of the little cork plugs is crumbling. I'd like to use them for an ocean-themed party, but I don't think that one will hold either salt or pepper in its current state. Does anyone know where I can get replacement plugs?

Thanks in advance.

Check a craft store like Hobby Lobby or Michaels. Walmart has packages of assorted sizes of corks too, I had to get some for a bottle. They were in their crafts area & in the housewares. Those might be too long for salts, but you could probably cut them down. Seems like they had a smaller size too, but it has been a few years since I got them.

Thanks, ngraham! I found them at Michael's! I will have to cut them down a bit, but that's fine.

Also a bit of duct or packing tape works well too.
