If you've ever wanted to go to the dark side over a glass of wine, then these DIY Darth Vader champagne corks are the perfect geeky project for a wine connoisseur.

Not only are these champagne corks the perfect way to recycle old corks, but you can also express your appreciation for the geekier things in life at the same time. The coolest thing about the champagne corks is that the light saber actually lights up thanks to some creative wiring with some red LEDs lights.

According to the cork's creator, Instructables user Sjroth, the Darth Vader champagne corks were a little challenging to pull off, as they took about five hours to make. Sjroth says that a Yoda cork is next on his docket. Regardless of which side of the force you find yourself on, there's nothing like champagne corks based on Star Wars.
