Wine Cork Crafts and DIY Decorating Projects

Last Updated on November 23, 2012 by Kristi Linauer

When it comes to craft and decorating projects, wine corks are always crowd pleasers. They’re so versatile and have such great texture that adds a touch of nature to any room. If you’ve got a pile of wine corks hidden away, pull them out and get crafting! And if you’re a teetotaler like I am, you might try local restaurants and bars and see if you can take some of their corks off their hands for them. I’ve rounded up 30 different ways for you to craft and decorate with your wine cork stash.
