Wine Cork Wreath

Wine Enthusiast Cork Wreath You can’t copyright an idea, right? Right! Well, this is one idea that I love. I was browsing through the Wine Enthusiast catlog online and came across this clever wreath made entirely of wine corks (save for the bow, of course). A couple months ago I finally started saving all of my corks (oh, to think of how many I’d thrown away!) in anticipation of some kind of craft project. I was thinking more along the lines of a trivet or (literal) corkboard, but this… oh, this is the one. I imagine that by the end of the summer I should have accumulated enough corks to make my own version. Of course, if you don’t drink wine it’s much cheaper to just buy the one they have for sale! But Drew and I do drink a lot of wine, so I’ll just continue saving up my corks. I think what will make the wreath even cooler will be the fact that I’ll be able to look at each cork and remember special events when we had special bottles. Just thought I’d share!

  1. There is something especially gorgeous about the wreath shape… maybe because the corks aren’t all lying in the same direction, like in a trivet?

  2. That’s a cool idea. I have a huge jar of corks that I need to do something with … probably need more than that though. I think we started saving them with the idea of a cork board. Never did it … this house doesn’t lent itself well to that.

  3. I love my wine cork board and would love to make another one, or something else. I’m sure I bookmarked a whole heap of ideas for using corks, like a headboard, and a table! The problem I’m finding is almost all the wine we get now is screw-cap, not corked.
