Big wine drinker? Have old bamboo coasters lying around? Well, save those corks because we have found 10 more ingenious ways to use them all around your house. Who knew something so simple can be so versatile!
1. Cork Magnets
Cut corks in half lengthwise and them apply adhesive on each magnet strip. Press firmly on the flat side. And that’s all.
2. Drawer Knobs
Gather up some champagne corks, screws, and a screw driver. Remove existing drawer knobs and replace them with your pointed screws. Hold a screw in place with a screwdriver. Do the same for all the drawers. Your drawer knobs are ready.
You will have to collect some potting soil, a puncher, paring knife, magnets and little succulents. Cut a hollow shape in the center of each cork. Attach magnets into each cork by pushing hard. Next, fill the hollow hole with dirt and place a little succulent inside each one. Add a few drops of water and attach the planters to a metallic surface.
4. Jewelry Frame
Looking for ways to organize your jewelry neatly? All you need is a frame that you like. Paint it. Cut out corks in long circular dimensions and fuse into the frame. If you want to personalize it some more, you can wrap the corks in your favorite fabric.
All you need are cork tiles, white paint and brush, painter’s tape, and image hanging strips. Then arrange tiles in a pattern and then start painting.
6. Mouse pad
All you have to do is cut cork to size then bond them together on top of a piece of thick silk paper. It’s better to keep it simple but you can design any shape you wish.
7. Cork Wall
Have you been looking for ways to liven up your kitchen? Is your kitchen backsplash too ordinary? Well no more. All you need is a piece of wood cut to the exact size of the area you wish to cover up. You can elect to either try a pattern layout or just fasten them in a row formation. When the wood is totally coated, attach it to the wall and voila!
8. Pencil Holder
You’ll need a power drill, cork trivets, and glue. Stick trivets on top of one another and press firmly. Next, using your drill bit, drill holes out and fill every hole with a writing device.
You’ll require a LOT of wine and champagne corks. All you have to do is simply collect all your corks and enclose them in a breathable and durable mesh fabric.
10. Cork Stamps
Why don’t you make cute and unique stamps with your corks? All you’ll need is a good knife, a sharpie and a bunch of corks. Use ink and fill in your layouts and voila!
