2 - Dismantle Trophy
Most trophy toppers are simply screwed into their bases. Turn the topper counterclockwise to loosen it from base.
3 - Loosen With Screwdriver
Should the topper not come loose, search for any screws, then loosen with screwdriver.
4 - Twist Cork Onto Integrated Screw
Twist a cork into the integrated screw of the trophy topper until snugly fit. Keep wine bottle sealed by plugging the top with trophy bottle topper.

With just a few simple steps, you've given your wine bottle a cool, collegiate look.
