The holidays have sadly come to an end, but don’t throw away those corks from your wine bottles just yet! Here are few simple and adorable DIY projects you can do using wine corks and super glue. You can create this project for your home or give them as a belated Christmas gift. Everyone will love this project!

What You Need:

Heat Protector Trivets

A trivet is a small plate that is placed underneath a hot pot to protect surfaces and now you can make your own. The best part about this craft is that you can create any design you want. The amounts of corks you need will depend on how big you want your trivet to be. You will also need heavy cardboard stock or wood – any material that won’t melt under hot pans or pots.

Start by cutting your wine corks in half, lengthwise, and then begin placing super glue on the flat surface and placing them on your cardstock or your chosen material. Continue doing so until your entire cardstock is glued with corks. Since super glue dries so easily you can use it right away!

Coasters

This is a great DIY gift everyone will love. Set aside about 8 corks for each coaster and begin pairing them. Using super glue connect two of them together until you have four pairs. You can then glue one pair vertically and the other horizontally, and that’s it! If you are giving these to someone, put them on top of each other and tie it with ribbon for an adorable house warming present!

Cork Magnets

All you need to create your wine cork magnets are a few corks and non-decorated magnets. Start by cutting the wine cork in half and then take your super glue and apply a small amount to the flat end of the cork and add your magnet. Each wine cork can make two magnets. You can paint them or decorate them however you want or you can leave them as is to show off your favorite wine brands.
