8. Crafting with Wine Corks

​Our home renovation has been taking up all of our time but the good news is that it’s going fairly smooth with minor hiccups. Half the kitchen ceiling is ripped out for recessed lighting and we’re down to sub flooring. But the cabinets arrived yesterday! Even though they are in boxes, I’m reassured what we picked is beautiful. I can barely wait to install them this Saturday.

Fortunately I had made this little craft a while back and saved it to share with you now. Champagne corks remind me of mushrooms so I made these ornaments, charms and photo stands.

The charms would also be cute tied to a tag on a gift wrapped present. And the photo stand is cute on a desk and can also be used to hold sticky notes and reminders.

I definitely became inspired for this craft through Pinterest. Cork crafts were some of the first Pins I saved to my board “On the Craft Shelf” along with bottle cap crafts. I never throw either of them away and often collect them from friends and family. There’s a slew of things to do with them, all perfect for simple rainy day projects.

What other ways have you used wine corks?
