You can purchase these Slate Heart Placeholders on which to write with chalk, via bhldn.
$58 for set of 8

Perfect for wine lovers!  Slice the bottom off of your corks, so that they will sit flat on a table and not roll away.  Then cut a horizontal slit in the top in which to slip the name card into.  
Tip- ask your local restaurant or watering hole if they can donate to your cork collection so that you don't have to drink all of those bottles of wine yourselves!  (Unless of course you want to!)

Take the advice from Better Homes and Gardens to get crafty. 
They suggest purchasing various finials from your local home store, snap any dowels off of the bottoms with pliers, cut a slit in the top with a handsaw to slip your name card into, then sand and paint.
