Cork crafts - 122-124 of 365

So, yes, we drink a lot of wine. (See Joe's wine reviews at our food blog, Eat Well and Prosper.) And I save the corks. Once our cork jar gets a little too full, I come up with something to make from them.

Using mat board, scrapbook paper, glue, corks, and clock mechanics, I made a clock to put by our wine bar.

I found this pic on Pinterest and it was pretty obvious I had to do this.

I've started buying fresh herbs from the farmer's market and have made a little garden on the window ledge above my kitchen sink. I saved some cans, and using striped and cork papers, I made a pretty wrap for the cans. (I also nabbed some cotton swabs from my doctor's office - they made the perfect stakes for the corks!)


  1. There are so many things to do with wine corks! I'm glad I don't drink it or I would save every single one of them!! :)

  2. Cork is such a warm, organic material to work with. These turned out nice!

    By the way, you have word verification on and this prevents people from commenting. i have a post about how to turn it off:

  3. Love cork stuff and those herb cans are a great idea. Thanks for linking to Craftastic Monday at Sew Can Do:)

  4. I love the herb can markers. And like you, we have a few corks around here. Thanks for sharing a great idea for them!
