5 easy and useful wine cork crafts

The ABC Crafts Series: C is for...Cork

Welcome to this week's edition of the ABC Crafts Series. We are still on the letter C, to bring you some pretty amazing things that you can make with wine corks. You'll never throw away a wide cork again after this!

As usual, I searched for easy projects with clear instructions so that everyone can make them too! Check them out below!

~ 1 ~


The DIY Wine Cork Vases from Designed Improvised are a wonderful idea, either to use as decor or to make for gifts!

~ 2 ~


These DIY Wine Cork Coasters from Tea for Two are one of the easiest things you can do with wine corks, and the ribbon trim adds extra cuteness. Definitely on my list of things to make this year!

Can a DIY Tic-Tac-Toe game be any cuter? My daughter will love this! Found on MollyMoo.

~ 4 ~


The Wine Cork Bath Mat from Crafty Nest requires a bit of patience, but the end result is amazing!

~ 5 ~


And, finally, my favorite project of the set: the Wine Cork Magnet Planters. From It All Started With Paint!

I hope you enjoyed this little collection of wine cork crafts. Next week we will return with more letter C crafts, to explore some interesting things to do with crayons!

In case you missed the previous posts, the ABC Crafts series will be covering one (or more) crafts for each letter of the alphabet during 2016. Each roundup features 5 links, grouped around the major theme. All links posted will be DIY tutorials with clear instructions and/or free patterns, so that everyone can easily replicate them.

I've created a specific page for the series, which will include links to the crafts already covered, and a list of upcoming topics. You can find the page here. If you have suggestions for any of the topics, feel free to leave me a comment or send me an e-mail and I will try to include your ideas as much as possible (with proper credit)!


Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. Such fun projects. Thank you for sharing on SYC! Jo

  2. Love the tic tac toe game. I've got a collection of corks and I'm collecting ideas of how to use them.

    1. Thank you Linda, and good luck with your projects!

  3. Oh my goodness these are some of the neatest things I've ever seen. I like those little planters a lot! Sometimes I wish I drank wine just to do these kinds of crafts. ;)

    Thank you for linking up the #HomeMattersParty. We hope to see you again when we open our doors on Friday at 12AM EST.

    1. Thank you for stopping by, and have a great week!

  4. Each of the ideas is cute, but my favorite is the Tic Tac Toe board.

    Thanks for Sharing Your Cup!

  5. Fun ideas Teresa. I have a large cork mat and I made a cork heart for Valentines a couple years ago. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  6. Great ideas! We supply used corks to the craft trade. Exciting to see your use of Champagne Corks which are often overlooked. We hope to see crafters making use of more Patron Tequila corks which are neat as well. Great work!

  7. What a cute collections of crafts with corks...but I been buying my wine in a box!! LOL!!Thanks for sharing on My 2 Favorite Things on Thursday! Hope to see you again tomorrow! Pinned!

  8. Thanks so much for sharing with the Let's Get Real party.

  9. I keep corks "just in case" as they seems like the kind of thing I should make something with! You have some lovely ideas here, I'm not sure I have enough for any of them yet but I will keep collecting, thanks for the inspiration.

    1. Thank you Julia, and good luck if you ever make one of these!

  10. Super cute idea, I especially love the little magnet succulent planters - adorable! Congrats on your feature at #HappinessIsHomemade this week, sharing it all over the place!
