A Flawed Prototype is Better than a Perfect Idea

DIY dartboard surround wine corks


We love repurposing things around OctoGifts headquarters. Giving an object new life solves a problem and saves an item from going into the landfill.

Wine corks are super versatile for DIY projects. We collect them, and have even sourced them from neighboring businesses. 

Sebastian made this dartboard surround for our basement a few years ago.

It was a flawed design.

There are now HUNDREDS of dart holes on the wall to the left and right of this surround.

Eventually the whole thing fell apart. But there was value in making this, because it revealed what to work on for version 2.

An imperfect prototype is 1000 times more valuable than the idea that never leaves your head.
