Have old cork coasters lying about? Well, save those corks because we have found 10 more innovative ways to use them all around your property.
1. Cork Magnets
Gather some magnet strips, a knife, glue, and a few wine corks. Cut corks in half lengthwise and them apply adhesive on each magnet strip. Press firmly onto the flat side. And that is all.
2. Drawer Knobs
Remove existing drawer knobs and replace them with your pointed screws. Hold a twist in place with a screwdriver. Next, firmly press a champagne cork against the twist and twist in a clockwise movement. Do the same for all of the drawers. Your new drawer knobs are ready.
You’ll have to collect some potting soil, a puncher, paring knife, magnets and tiny succulents. Cut a hollow shape in the center of each cork. Attach magnets into every cork by pushing hard. Then fill the hollow hole with soil and then place a little succulent inside each one. Add a few drops of water and attach the planters into a metal surface.
4. Jewelry Frame
Looking for ways to arrange your jewelry neatly? All you need is a frame that you like. Paint it. Cut out corks in long circular sizes and fuse to the framework. If you wish to personalize it some more, you can wrap the corks in your favorite fabric.
All you need are cork tiles, white paint and brush, painter’s tape, and image hanging strips. Apply the tape to the corks and proceed to create stripes. Then arrange tiles in a pattern and then start painting.
6. Mouse pad
All you have to do is cut cork to size then bond them together on top of a piece of thick cork paper. It’s far better to keep it simple but you can design any form you wish.
7. Cork Wall
Have you been looking for ways to spice up your kitchen? All you need is a piece of wood cut out to the exact size of the area you would like to cover up. Then begin massaging half-cut corks onto piece of wood until every inch is covered. You can elect to either attempt a pattern layout or just fasten them in a row formation.
8. Pencil Holder
You’ll need a power drill, cork trivets, and glue. Stick trivets on top of one another and press firmly. Next, using your drill bit, drill out holes and fill every hole with a writing apparatus.
You will require a LOT of wine and champagne corks. All you’ve got to do is simply collect all your corks and enclose them in a breathable and durable mesh fabric.
10. Cork Stamps
Why don’t you make cute and special stamps with your corks? All you will need is a good knife, a sharpie and a whole lot of corks. Next, draw whatever style you want and then simply cut around it and slowly chip away any excess wood. Use ink and fill in your layouts and voila!
