Re-Purpose Your Wine Bottles and Corks!

Ever since I started drinking wine, I have saved the corks. I never knew why I did, or what I would do with them, but I would just drop them in a large vase that happened to sit on top of a wine rack I was given as a wedding present.
After a while the vase started filling up and I was quickly running out of room so I quickly realized that I needed to figure out a new use for my corks. Since I’m not the most creative person, I decided to hop on the internet and see what other people were doing; here’s what I found!

DIY Cork Bath Mat

Since cork is naturally water, mildew, dust, and pollen resistant, as well as hypoallergenic, it is a great material for areas that are exposed to water.

Holiday Decorations

Bust out your hot glue gun, these are too cute!

Serving tray

Practical and a great way to show off your favorite wines! Use a shadow box or an old tray that needs a makeover, arrange the corks so they cover the bottom and glue them down. Then, just fit a piece of plastic or glass over the top of the corks if you plan to use the tray. Otherwise, hang it on the wall!

Tell us what you’ve done with your wine corks!
