Cork trivet

Last spring, I got Joe a Wine of the Month membership for his birthday. With all the wine we were getting, we recycled or reused the bottles, but I felt bad throwing out the corks. I started saving them. After doing some research, I found there are tons of things you can do with corks, so I thought I'd take a shot at making a trivet.

Hot glue

I laid out the corks to figure out the kind of design I would like, which turned out to be alternating pairs.

I glued each pair together and let dry. Then glued pairs of pairs together, and so on, until I got the size I wanted. And voila!

Now we just have to drink more wine so I can make a set.
