Uses for wine corks?
By McTeapot from MA
I was at the craft mall the other day and someone had taken a tray and glued the corks (sideways) across to make a pretty little display. I bet you could use it to serve with or put it on the wall for a message center like mentioned above. Also, If you really love the corks, try arranging them in a shadow box and create a great work of art. Maybe decorate with some miniature wine bottles and glasses around the bottom. Fun! I don't drink wine so I am never able to collect enough corks to create anything like this. Have fun!
Corks, glued together make a very attractive trivet for hot pots.
If you click on Woman's Day Magazine wine cork Christmas tree under related links, you will find directions for a cute holiday project. I made one and am making another. We always have lots of corks because we make home made wine.
You might also want to check Better Homes and Gardens' website. It is www.bhg.com. I know I have seen a wine cork wreath idea there.
I'm in New Zealand, and want to make a wine cork board but have very few wine corks! Any ideas where I could buy in bulk?

Tips and ideas for making crafts with wine corks.
This shows you how to fabricate wine corks into little drums to use as beads in a necklace. Requires small pieces of leather, thread and cork.
Glued a ribbon around them, so it made a loop at the top to be hung up if they wished. Wrote on the back of it with a Sharpie permanent marker their names and wedding date & my name. I hope that gives you another idea.
Using a shoe box cut out windows and doors and then as they normally lay out logs extending at the corner of the house do the same with the logs (corks). They are easily cut by placing on your cutting board and using a sharp knife. We used whole corks but you could also cut them in half lengthwise. Get Corking! (05/08/2008)
I want information on making crafts from wine corks such as wreaths, trivets, coasters, and bulletin boards. I want to know how to cut the cork so that it does not come apart.
