Do you keep all your old wine corks? You should! Becky Kazana shows us how to turn old wine corks into a fabulous, rustic-looking cork board. If you love the look of this board, but don't drink much wine, you can pick up corks from ebay and other sources.

25 cool things to do with wine bottles

Materials:

  • Wine corks
  • Bulletin board
  • Glue gun
  • Serrated Knife

 

Instructions:

  1. Making a bulletin board with wine corks is quite simple. You'll need large collection of corks, a bulletin board and your trusty hot glue gun. (My wonderful husband uses a serrated knife to cut these in half so I only need half as many. Be warned- it's a recipe for sliced fingers. You can also find lots of them on ebay if you're impatient!)


     
  2. I  recommend laying out your pattern before gluing it down. I like to do a parquet pattern to make them look more interesting and less messy.


     
  3. After you have a design worked out, carefully hot glue each cork to the board. (I like to use an actual cork bulletin board so any gaps are less noticeable.)

What a neat idea! It looks really cool. You can also find recycled corks (and recycled champagne corks too) online: http://www.corkstore.com/Products/Recycled-Corks

I like using empty picture frames with the glass taken out. It has a brown background color and you can pack the corks in tight. It's nice because it stands upright and you can tack pictures on it interchangeably esp. for the holidays, or keep it on a stand by the front door to hold important messages and mail. Either way, its a fun project.

Very clever idea. I have been collectic corks but for other person....maybe i keep them and prepare this BB, which is so easy!

Too bad Pinterest blocked this craft! I really wanted to pin this. :(

You can also buy a bag of unused corks @ places like Walmart in their floral dept. I'm sure some of the local craft stores would have them as well. I really really like this idea, it's so useful but doesn't look at all like the bulletin boards used at school & work. Gotta give this a go.

I love this! I have a very special cork I saved from a bottle of wine we had before my daughters college graduation dinner at a winery. I've written on there when and what it's from and now I could use it on like the upper corner of the cork board and see it all the time!

Thanks Becky. This is such a great idea. Cork Boards are notoriously thin and now my large head stick pins will hold my ever increasing stuff on the board better.

If we have any corks lying around we donate them to the Melbourne Zoo (Australia) the money they get from recycling them went towards the new elephant exhibit :) Great idea though.

What a great way for someone who is a compulsive "might need this some day" collector to clear out one craft stash .

Super genial la idea de reciclar los corchos de vino voy a juntar Muy agradecida. Un abrazo.

Made in a smaller size, they could be used as hot pads. Great idea, I'm going hunting for corks!

There is a crafter in our area that makes cork hot plates and sells them. They are gorgeous and truly add a delightful touch in the kitchen! He uses the same method to make them, but attaches the corks to wood blocks and adds a nice wood trim around the outside. They are great, as the cork will not burn from hot items placed on them ) Easy and fun to make! Marilee, Spring, TX.

I like this I think Ill Hit ebay for some corks since I'm a tea person my self.
