Amber gets crafty

I collect corks from wine bottles.

It's just what I do. It's fun, and a way to keep track of all the neat bottles you've drank without saving the actual bottle.

My boyfriend's mom also collect corks, and had A LOT saved up. She had planned on making me a corkboard with them, but with moving and whatnot, she never got around to doing it.

Sooo, she gave me the stuff to do it! :)

Arrange the corks to fit..

I made sure the designs/words were showing on each cork..

I wish I had taken pics of everything step by step - but I didn't. :(

P.S. You can actually stick thumb tacks into the corks, so it really can be used as a corkboard.

Wanna make your own?

Here's what you'll need:
A coffee table tray (got mine at World Market)
Plenty of wine corks
Super glue gun w/ glue

It was a bit time consuming, (only an hour) but it was fun. I don't get crafty often, so it was enjoyable for me to see the finished product of something that I actually sat down and made.

I've already got a couple people in mind that I would like to make one for, so I guess I better get to drinking more wine! ;)

I never thought of making a cork board, but I always heard to take a photo frame, preferably a square one and make a hot pad/trivet out of them.

i've always wanted a wine cork board but since it takes me like a year to drink a bottle of wine, i dont think it will happen any time soon! :(

This is such a good idea! I’ve been seeing a lot of wine cork craft ideas on Pinterest lately… I really want to make a wine cork rug/mat… all in good time, I suppose, haha.
