Weekend Warrior: Upcycle! Cool Cork Ideas

We love vino. It goes great with most of our favorite activities. Hanging with friends? Relaxing with a book? Eating a swanky dinner? A great glass of wine pairs well with almost anything. Of course, like a lot of vinophiles we’ve got in the habit of saving our wine corks. Perhaps you have too. So, what to do with a drawer full of old corks? We’ve got a few cool and creative ideas for you.

Pick a letter, any letter. Or better yet, pick the first letter of your surname, build or buy a wood backer shaped like said letter, grab a glue gun and start sticking corks on it. Besides adding a cool piece of art to your home, you’ll have a handy dandy tracker to keep tabs on how many bottles of wine you’ve imbibed.
