Make your own wine cork coasters

Use old small picture frames that are broken or you can buy empty frames and fill the middle with cork to use like coasters. These coasters are heat resistant and can withstand heat as well.

DIY Wine Cork Tray:

This is one of the interesting crafts because you can start by sticking the corks to a fully inflated balloon to get the shape you want and when it’s half done let it dry before you can break the balloon. A beautiful bowl is ready for use. You can also stick it on old shells.

Wine cork tag:

Break the corks into round discs by soaking them in hot water before you can easily cut them off. Later you can paint the cork in beautiful and vivid colors before attaching a hook to it and wearing it like pendants and earrings.

Wine Cork Doormat:

How about this cool doormat that prevents slipping on the floor? You can use a vegetable cutter as a base for the mat and cut the cork in half vertically and start gluing them evenly onto the cutter. Once finished, a beautiful doormat is ready.

You can also make simple mats without a backing to use like a table mat.


Just by looking at the picture you can guess how it should have been done as it is easy to make and all you have to do is start gluing them on top of each other to form a single side panel and then continue with the other.

Use it for garden projects:

Just insert the skewers into the cork and write the names of the plants or herbs on them and you can place them in front of each plant in your garden to make it look organized.
