After Reading This You’ll Never Throw Away Your Corks
1. Message Board
All the usefulness of a bulletin board, yet much more aesthetically pleasing. Use a decorative picture or mirror frame to really set it off. Just hot glue corks to the backing!

Want to remember where you were when you drank the night away with your best friend? Save the cork and turn it into a commemorative key chain. Functional and sentimental!

Cut corks to the appropriate length to fix wobbly furniture. They are sturdy, yet soft enough to not scratch your floors.

After drinking a bottle of wine, write on the cork who you were with, the date, and what you were commemorating. Save the corks in a nice vase. It won’t take long for you to have a nice collection of memories!
5. Fire Starters
Just soak your corks in alcohol beforehand and then take them on your next camping trip or bonfire to start the fire easily.
6. Plant Markers
They are biodegradable plus country chic! Just write the name of the plant and then stick on a piece of wire!
7. Candle Filler
Make small candles more exciting! Place a candle in a small vase, then put the small vase into a larger one. Fill the difference with corks.
8. Hot Pad
Create a nice hot pad for hot pots and pans!
9. Wine Charms
You obviously like drinking wine. Make nice wine charms out of the corks!
Make your fridge a little more personal by cutting corks in half and creating magnets!

Create an outline of something you like, then fill it with cork for some unusual wall art!
