6 DIY Wine Cork Crafts

I don’t know about you, but I drink a lot of wine. And with each bottle I add one more cork to my collection. Dropping into a draw to mingle with my spatulas and whisks in the kitchen, the corks seem to be piling up. Soon I will need to find them a less crowded home.

Why do I save the corks you ask?

  1. Out of pure habit – I’m a bit of a pack-rat
  2. To remember the different wines I’ve tried

Here are 5 Do-it-Yourself Wine Cork Crafts:
