Have old bamboo coasters lying around? Well, save those corks because we’ve found 10 more innovative ways to use them all around your property. Who knew something so simple can be so versatile!
- Cork Magnets
Collect some magnet strips, a knife, glue, and some wine corks. Press firmly on the flat side. And that’s all.
- Drawer Knobs
Gather up some champagne corksscrews, and a screw driver. Hold a twist in place with a screwdriver. Next, firmly press a champagne cork against the twist and twist in a clockwise movement. Do the same for all the drawers. Your drawer knobs are ready.
You will need to collect some potting soil, a puncher, paring knife, magnets and tiny succulents. Cut a hollow shape in the middle of each cork. Attach magnets into each cork by pushing hard. Then fill the hollow hole with dirt and place a little succulent inside every one. Add a few drops of water and attach the planters to a metal surface.
- Jewelry Frame
On the lookout for ways to arrange your jewelry neatly? Paint it. Cut out corks in long circular sizes and fuse into the framework. If you want to personalize it a little more, you can wrap the corks in your favorite fabric.
All you need are cork tiles, white paint and brush, painter’s tape, and image hanging strips. Apply the tape to the corks and proceed to create stripes. Then arrange tiles in a pattern and then begin painting. Lastly, remove the tape and there you have it.
- Mouse pad
All you’ve got to do is cut cork to size then bond them together along with a piece of thick cork paper. It’s far better to keep it simple but you can design any form you wish.
- Cork Wall
Have you been looking for ways to spice up your kitchen? Is your kitchen backsplash too ordinary? Well no more. All you need is a piece of wood cut out to the exact size of the area you would like to cover up. Next, begin massaging half-cut corks onto piece of wood until every inch is covered. You can elect to either try a pattern layout or just fasten them in a row formation. When the wood is totally covered, attach it to the wall and voila!
- Pencil Holder
You’ll require a power drill, cork trivets, and glue. Stick trivets on top of one another and press firmly. Next, with your drill bit, drill out holes and fill every hole with a writing apparatus.
You will require a LOT of wine and champagne corks. All you’ve got to do is simply gather all your corks and enclose them in a breathable and durable mesh fabric.
- Cork Stamps
Why don’t you make cute and unique stamps along with your corks? All you will need is a good knife, a sharpie and a whole lot of corks. Then draw whatever design you want and then simply cut around it and slowly chip away any extra wood. Use ink and fill in your designs and voila!
