Put a cork in it!

What do you do when you were born and raised by winos, when all your friends are winos, and your in-laws are winos? Well, you collect corks to do crafts!

My cork board process...

First I grabbed my huge collection of corks from a few years of drinking too much wine. Also, my glue gun and a plethora of glue sticks.

Then I decide which part of the cork I like the best and ensure it will be visible

Glue two corks together and then glue 4 sets together in a parquet pattern

Then glue the parquet piece together to the desired width and height and voila! You have a new fancy cork board!


This may be my most expensive craft to date, but it is going to be AWESOME when I get it on my wall in my new fancy craft room! This is going to hold onto all the things that inspire me!


  1. I collect corks too!! Except a lot of mine are the plastic ones from too many cheap bottles of wine!! :)

  2. I have a slew of those too, trying to come up with a project for those too!

  3. yay your finally doing something diy! love it!

  4. I have a couple of bowls full of corks but I am in constant debate over what to do with them since we tend to write quotes and dates on ours. I don't want to cover anything up! But for now they just sit there uselessly...
