Make a Basket Out of Wine Corks
The question of the day is what to do with left over wine corks? Disclaimer: I did not drink all of this wine to make this craft, lol. I got a big box of wine corks from eBay for really cheap! I just love all the crafts people are doing on Pinterest with the corks so I thought I would try it out.
This is a really simple craft that probably won’t take more than 30 min to complete. This basket is perfect for just your desk or table. It is a really cute way to store just about anything.
Gather your corks and start to assemble them. Try to get them all about the same size, it will make the basket look better.
Then start hot gluing them together. Hold the pieces together for a few seconds to make sure they stick, but the hot glue should be strong enough to hold it together.
I did 2 rows of 5 for the bottom of the basket and 24 vertical corks for the sides. And I stacked the sides 2 corks tall.
Once I was gluing all the corks together I thought it looked a little plain so I added a ribbon and a flower to jazz it up.
So what have you made with wine corks? Next I think I will make a trivet and a cork board for my office. Stay tuned to the tutorials.
