Wine Cork Crafts and DIY Decorating Projects
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.

Addicted 2 Decorating is where I share my DIY and decorating journey as I remodel and decorate the 1948 fixer upper that my husband, Matt, and I bought in 2013. Matt has M.S. and is unable to do physical work, so I do the majority of the work on the house by myself. You can learn more about me here.
So many great ideas here! Thanks!
Great roundup of corks! More reason to pour a glass and enjoy wine 🙂
Nice collection of ideas – thanks for putting it all together in one place 🙂
If there’s one thing I’ve got, it’s an abundance of corks!
Kelly.. I would pay the shipping for all your old corks!! I don’t drink but I love crafts with corks.. My gram saves me hers but its not enough 🙂 if you would I would be so appreciative!
Love this collection.. Shared it on Facebook. We upcycle wine bottles.. This gives me so many ideas for the corks, I’m collecting quite a few! Thanks for sharing!
Freeform art, especialy the “swirly” one, is my favourite! Now some corks needed before my burts of createvity!
Thank you so much for featuring my Cork Wreath! I love art with corks… there are so many great ideas! Great round up!
These are great! I just fell in love with the sculpture! This won’t encourage us to slow down on wine…
Thank you for the double feature. Some many great ideas in one place. We are honored to be included. Off to share on FB and pinterest.
I love this!
Those are some great ideas! How do you find all of those to do a round-up???
Lots and lots of Google searches…and Pinterest. 🙂
I always feel there must be something that can be done with wine corks, and now I’ve got a few ideas. Freeform artwork a la Anthropologie may be a little while away, so may satisfy myself with a cork knife handle in the meantime…
Loving the cork bathmat, where can I get one of these (or do I have to make it myself)?
amazing, i like it.
Thank you so much for featuring our Message board with wine cork bulletin board and chalkboard ! I was so surprised and you made my day! Love all the other ideas too! Great roundup!
I love your ideas. So many clever options to consider. I think I’ll start with a garland. Wow. Thanks.
Just saw this great round up! Thanks for the shout out!
What a great round up of ideas for wine corks! I’ve been collecting them for about a year with no clue what to do with them. Now I know! Thanks for sharing. I’ll pass these ideas on to my readers at ATL Vino.
I love these ideas! I found a different Christmas wreath in a magazine and made it. I would like to share here. How do I get the picture to you?
Oh no. I have found another excuse to drink more wine. Now I can claim I am just doing it for my art.
Thanks for sharing these ideas.
i made a wreath out of my wine corks similar to the one you posted, but just a simpler design.
Love these ideas! What is the font you used for the numbered titles?? I love it! Thanks!
Lorraine, it’s Google web font called Euphoria Script. You can also download it free from any number of free font sites. Just Google it, and you’ll find it. 🙂
Thank you so much!!
Awesome! so many ideas with cork, I have so many left overs!! lol
http://ecogreen4fun.blogspot.com/o I love all the cork ideas. I will have to book mark this page for sure.
I thought all of the ideas were really terrific! I can’t wait to try them. (Only thing I could have used was explicit directions 🙂
If you click through to the original sources, I think many of them have details instructions for the projects. 🙂 Have fun!
Really neat ideas! Did you see the jewelry I make with recycled corks? Check it out!
I love the ideas but as a family of teetotaliers where do i get the corks??????
My local Whole Foods Market recycles wine corks. If you have an overflow & don’t know what to do with them. It’s a limited resource; and with the recycling, they can be made again into new wine corks. It’s a very good thought. I take mine there every few weeks.
Great job on the wine cork round up! We have boxes of them and still have yet to make one project with them!
love them all!
I actually made an ornament out of a wine cork to commemorate our wine making weekend. It turned out super cute, but then I am a little bit biased!
Love these ideas and since we always have a ton left over, this is inspiring!
Thank you so much for sharing this all amazing proyects!!!!!
It was inspiring! 😉
From the Caribbean blue island
I love the idea with the cork key chains fr wedding favors but where do the stickers with the name and date of groom come from?
Wow! Love them all!!!
Thanks for the wonderful ideas! Can’t drink wine due to meds, but have wonderful friends who are saving their corks for me!!

Does anyone know where I can get something like this in book form – my husband wanted a book of bottle cork crafts for Christmas – i can’t find…Anyone have any suggestions??? THX!
I’s like to find some wine cork ideas for Christmas ornaments, if anybody has some, please get ahold of me!!!
Never worked with cork but I’m ready to give it a shot. I love this site…a lot of Must Do’s !!!
LOVE so many of the ideas but the one I am saving for is the backsplash above my bar. If that looks good I will do more of the kitchen areas.
Thanks for the inspiration!

Loved the ide, can’t wait to start a project.
Great ideas! I love it! Awesome Blog!
This is the best site I have found so far on what to do with wine corks! Amazing!
I would make decoration like vase with corks and lighters, but I was afraid to keep it in clean, so I closed my corks in a glass bottle: <a href="http://winozdziewczyna.blogspot.com/2013/09/ozdoba-z-korkow-po-winie-pomys-dekoracja.html"
I know it’s simple decoration but I enjoy still keep my corks at home 🙂
Here’s right link 🙂 http://winozdziewczyna.blogspot.com/2013/09/ozdoba-z-korkow-po-winie-pomys-dekoracja.html

Great choices. Here’s another option: A wine cork boot tray for messy boots! http://www.luxeausterity.com/2013/10/make-is-better-wine-cork-boot-tray-diy.html
So glad to have found a site that offers some excellent ideas for my hundreds and hundreds of wine corks!
i have saved lots of corks and want to make a christmas tree!!!
I do not even understand how I finished up here, but I assumed this submit was once good.
I don’t recognise who you are but definitely you are going to a well-known blogger if you are not already.
I’ve dabbled a little into wine cork crafts, they’re easy and I always have fun with them and you’ve got a lot of creative ideas here. I love using them as place card holders. They were a hit at Thanksgiving dinner.
I love the idea of the vase fillers. Think I’ll try that for Christmas 🙂
Love this collection.. Shared it on Facebook.
