"Wine Cork" Cork Board

Dan and I love and miss Europe, so to make ourselves feel a little closer to "home", our bathroom is French themed, and we're making our kitchen more and more Italian themed.  Wine is a huge part of Italian cuisine, and we're always looking for a place to pin important things, and Dan has a wonderful wife who pins amazing ideas on pinterest... so we found this very creative idea to reuse old wine corks. Dan's Aunt and Uncle enjoy a nice wine, and so they've been collecting corks for us, and mom cooks with wine sometimes, so she's been setting aside some Hungarian corks for us.  
We found an old frame at a neighbor's garage sale, and got some ply wood from our pastor and a glue gun.  First Dan nailed the ply wood to the back of the frame, placed all the corks in the pattern he wanted, then picked them up one at a time, and glued them to the back.  He also nailed two frame hooks on the back.  And there you have it!  I love it, and think it looks great!  Can't wait to hang it up.

Thanks to Bella, the right bottom corner is a little more "worn" than originally. :)
So, here's what you need:
One frame
1 piece of ply wood, sized to fit the back
Different kinds of wine corks
Hot glue/glue gun
Frame hooks

Have fun creating, let me know your crafting turns out!

  1. I have wanted to do this myself and so has a co-worker. She's a bit more motivated then me, so I've been supplying her with corks. :) I'l do the same too sometime. Nice.
