The more complex projects will use a significant amount of wine corks so make sure every time you have a bottle of wine you save the cork! There are tons of great things that you can use them for even if you aren’t making wine cork crafts. You can easily make cork walkways, cork tables, and corn signs with these tutorials that we’ve featured below. Do you have a favorite cork project that you’d like to share with us?

Please leave feedback in the comments section below and we’ll be sure to add it to our list! Any interesting stories or fails while attempting wine cork crafts are appreciated. We like to hear about those too! Wine corks are used for multiple purposes. Did you also know that Cork’s bubble-form structure and natural fire resistance make it suitable for insulation in house walls, floors, ceilings and facades? Awesome. Here’s a few of our favorite projects.

14. Make A Wine Cork Floor Mat

It makes sense to concoct a mat out of wine corks. To be honest, it didn’t make sense until I realized that corks are not slippery and will grip nicely to tile.

    How about wine cork corn-on-the-cob holders? Much like the cheese spreaders, but with two prongs. Use stainless steel finishing nails with the heads cut off, or straight stiff stainless wire sharpened a little on one end, and epoxy into tight fitting holes drilled in the cork. Or, use bamboo skewers glued in with wood glue for a greener, even safer method.

    If your saucepan lid has the right kind of handle (flattened u-shaped, hoop, etc, not solid) a couple or three corks that fit tightly in it make a nice cool-touch handle. We have one that has lasted years, even with the dishwasher.
