Ever wondered you can morph simple cork you have pulled out of wine bottles countless times into amazing new stuffs with a little effort and creativity. If not and you seriously want to do so, here are 10 amazing new ideas to recycle the corks that have been lying around uselessly in various corners of your kitchen drawers.
Make stamps from the cork
Draw a motif nicely on the end part of the cork and then cut out as finely as possible around it with a measurement of about ¼” deep. Do it very carefully, slowly and steadily to make it the perfect stamp cork.
Thread spool corks
Collect some wooden spools and wrap them up with colorful threads; now, glue them to your wine corks and you have an upgraded version of your usual wine stopper. This is a very colorful way to use your old wine corks.
Wreath of cork
A cork wreath is not only a surprising and amazing idea, but having one in your house could also help you convey your penchant for recycling stuff with absolute creativeness. Make a wreath out of straw and using hot glue, attach the corks all over it without leaving any place for the visibility of the straw wreath. Start by attaching the corks in a flat layer and then start adding some slanted corks over the top of the wreath.
Magnetic cork planters
Take a cork, hollow it out, and then fix a magnet on its back. Then, plant the cork with attached magnet with some dirt and a tiny succulent. Once you did it, you have the most unique magnetic cork planter.
Take a Styrofoam ball and paint it nicely before covering it with corks by using super glue or hot glue gun and you have a beautiful perfect piece of art to add to your living room or any other part of your house.
Key chains of cork
Take a key chain ring, fit it with a small screw eye, and then try to screw it onto the cork and make yourself a homemade cork key chain. You can also cover the cork with symbols or note of your choice, which you can further use like any normal key chain.
Cork place card holders
Place card holders can be great wedding decals. All you need to do is take the edge of the cork and cut the silver off it, so that it can lie flat on the side and then make a fine slit on the top.
It is one of the easiest things to make out of cork. For creating one, all you need to do is stick together wine corks using super glue and keep on doing it until you get your desired size.
Write a plant’s name over a cork and drill a hole in it big enough for a bamboo skewer to go in and then stick it wherever necessary.
