Tipsy Tuesday DIY: Using Old Corks


Hi All!
Today I have a really simple and quick Tipsy Tuesday DIY!
If you are anything like my family and wine- you may also have a stash of corks somewhere in your house. If you are one of those people who doesn’t hoard everything and throws your corks away after the wine is gone- then you might consider keeping them after this post!

This is one of the most simple DIY  projects I have ever done – All you need are corks, a hot glue gun- and some type of surface that you want to make into a pin-board.

In my case this was a little over-counter light self that my dad made for my kitchen in my new apartment! I thought that it was the perfect place to pin up recipes while I make them!

You’ll notice that the before and under construction photos are all in night lighting, and that’s because I did this project with my mom on New Year’s Eve! Since we were spending NYE in we thought we’d get crafty with a simple quick project- and this was perfect!

You can definitely figure out your favourite wines doing this- Sandbanks Baco Noir anyone?

If you find, like me, that you don’t have an area that is the exact length of your corks, and you are left with space, you can always cut your corks in half and put them the other way. This cork is from Thatcher winery in California – and they have a cricket printed on the inside end of their wine cork- it really adds colour being stained from the wine! it’s so cute 🙂

I found it easiest to cut my corks with a little hand saw 🙂

A simple 15 minute project- and now I have the perfect place to pin my recipes! And a place to look up and remember many good bottles of wine 🙂

What do you do with your leftover wine corks?
