If you’re anything like me… you have some old wine corks lying around that could be put to good use. Some of us might have more than others and I think I’m on the side that has more! These super fun wine cork craft ideas will give you some ideas for a DIY project that you can do while also drinking a glass. You could always use an extra cork so it counts as “homework” for the project lol
Here are the crafts I found:
DIY Kitchen Utensil Holder

How unbelievably unique is this DIY kitchen utensil holder using wine corks? In this quick and easy project, your favorite wine corks are stacked on top of each other forming a circle that your larger utensils can then fit inside on display. I love how all of the corks are different sizes, patterns, and stains, and how you can just place the cork contraption right on your kitchen counter, or anywhere you see fit in your kitchen. I am obsessed with this idea!
DIY Wine Cork Bulletin Board

When you drink a lot of wine then you have a lot of corks! I can still remember being in college during my biggest wine intake days and wondering what I should do with all of the corks because I wanted to do SOMETHING but I was too broke and busy to get super into it. I wish I would have stumbled upon this awesomely easy wine cork bulletin board!
I’m the type of gal who doesn’t like to cover my walls with pictures of myself; I like to add cool trinkets and trendier decor to my home. This bulletin board is as easy as hanging a picture, but more unique and definitely more awesome. With any size bulletin boards (depending on how many corks you have saved up) you can paint the frame of the board, line up the corks, hot glue them together, let the glue dry, and voila! Your corkiest quirkiest bulletin board decor ever!
Wine Cork Succulent Magnets

This DIY project is su-cute-lent! I love this little project, and the display the succulents inside the wine corks hold on your fridge. My favorite part about these quirky corky little plants? How she paints the bottom of the corks different earthy colors to make them match a plant pot, it’s so cute! This can be done in just 5 steps after purchasing your succulents, and less than 20 minutes. The turn out is unique, adorable, and a perfect little addition to your refrigerator, where you keep all the wine inside or on top of course!
DIY Wine Cork Monogram Craft

It wasn’t until I got married that I became obsessed with my initials. Now, I’m LB for life and I LOOOVE it. The other thing I became even more obsessed with when I got married? Wine. There’s something about sipping a glass of wine on our deck after my husband grills me some steak with veggies and we wind down together
This combines both things in one amazing DIY project! Depending on the number of wine corks you have saved up (or willing to purchase) will dictate the size, but this one is a lifesize monogram! All you need to do is purchase two wood letter of your size choosing, hot glue the corks onto it, be patient, and there you have it! You could also customize this with paint, stain, or even LED lights if you’re feeling flashy. You may now kiss the cork, I will love this

How adorably patriotic is this American flag made out of wine corks just in time for July 4th? I hang this in my kitchen the entire month of July and I won’t lie, I feel reaaaaaaal American looking at it
This DIY project is easy, unique, and fun to do with your kids. Once you set up the design of your little flag, you can paint them using your kid’s favorite CHALK red white and blue, twine, glue, and there it is, your very own wino patriotic flag! These directions are simple to understand, the process is easy, and the pictures will show you exactly how it needs to be done. Salute to America, AND WINE, this summer!

When it’s time to “wine” down… What more could you want then setting your big glass of red down on this fun and quirky cork coaster? I am obsessed with this idea. It’s easy, unique, and definitely noticeable when you have guests over. Plus, the process is unbelievably quick… You only need 8 corks per coaster and then you glue the pairs together, wait a night, and that’s all you need for the project! Veni Vidi Vino!

TROPIC like it’s hot! I love this tropical DIY pineapple craft using wine corks! I’m always looking for new ways to entertain my kids, and I’ll be honest… I always have wine corks hanging around. (I drink too much wine)
This is the perfect cheap and fun summer project, not to mention the turn out is almost too adorable to bare. All you need for this “fineapple” DIY craft is a couple of wine corks, a sharpie, green pom poms, gold paint, and glue. The end product looks like little fake pineapple succulents that your kids can play with or that you can use as decor anywhere around the house. This is the pineapple of my eye for the summer!

You had me at merlot! How stunning and uniquely versatile is this wine cork board? What I love so much about this wino enthusiast based DIY project is that it’s not just for decoration, it can actually be USED in your home! She uses this fun and modernly funky board to put sticky notes on the board in her kitchen. You could put important to do’s, a meal plan for the week, weekly schedules for appointments, work out schedule, etc on here, and it would look so good! I love how it’s a circular shape, and how she used an old board she got at a garage sale for a dollar. You need a ton of wine corks for this project (at least 50) so get ready to start saving up and planning where your cork board will go this summer!
Christmas Wine Cork Wreath

How festively gorgeous is this wine cork wreath? I mean seriously… it’s better than the real green things. All you need to do to get your wino wreath festivities on this holiday season is to purchase a cheap styrofoam wreath, some Christmas flower greenery, cranberries, and a hot glue gun
It doesn’t get easier, cheaper, or more doable for the gorgeous turn out than that. I love how the wine corks are scattered in different shapes around the wreath, and how it’s imperfection makes it look completely perfect when it’s all put together and completed. This is the perfect decor to hang on your front door, or in your kitchen for the holidays, and it’s too stunning to pass up! Prosec-ho-ho-ho!

I’m always looking for new fall DIY decor because fall here in Michigan lasts for 3 months and Thanksgiving is only a month ordeal. This is festive, modern, made for a wine lover, ad unbelievably stunning. I love how stains the wine corks different colors of orange and red, and the fake cranberries at the top. This could be placed anywhere… from a kitchen counter to a front porch and still look great. There are only 4 materials needed, and you can assemble your corks in less than an hour. Give it a night to dry and bam; A pretty project that will definitely give friends and family pumpkin to talk about this fall season!
Wine Cork Tray

Hosting parties gives me anxiety and I HATE doing it… The thing is, I’m not even really sure why? I love cooking, my house is always clean and decorated, and I love taking care of people. Something about being the host though… Terrifying! This is a great DIY project to master being the hostess this year. This wine cork tray is modern, quirky, unique, and is definitely going to have guests wondering how you made it or where you got it. I love the idea of using this cork tray as a centerpiece for your favorite bottles when you have friends over, or to carry appetizers
Plus, it’s SO easy to make. Take a tray, stain the corks beforehand for customization, glue them, let them sit overnight, and the very next day you have a “cray tray” that people won’t be able to get enough of! This will definitely help you become the hostess with the mostest!

Awe, look at these ridiculously cute stunning little angels! This wine cork project is adorable, easy, quick, and fun. It can be used for a lot of different occasions: from a Christmas decoration to the loss of a loved one to a fun project to do with your kids this winter and you won’t want to miss out. With less than 10 materials, as many wine corks as you want angels (could be as little as two) and a little bit of craftiness, you could have these cute little angels on your Christmas tree or in a gift for a loved one this season. Halo yes!
Chalkboard and Wine Cork Place Cards

Let’s CHALK this wine cork place card project up to what it really is, one of the best! This idea is more than just an adorable DIY project, it could save you a ton of money depending on what you’re using it for. These are wine card/place holders that are labeled using chalk. Once you have enough corks, all you have to do is assemble toothpicks connected to mini chalkboards on them
They are easy to make, look unique and adorable. These could be used at weddings, church events, a large gathering, etc, I’m “chalk full” of ideas for them, and they would save you so much money instead of having to hire someone to make you place holders. When in doubt, sidewalk chalk, always!
Wine Cork Stamps

Mail it out (or decorate) this year in style with these adorable wine cork stamps! My kids absolutely love those markers where one side is for coloring and the other side has scented stamps. The only problem is they are expensive and they ruin them so easily. These are fun for them to make WITH you, and then fun to use afterward!
Plus, if you already have wine corks hanging around it’s less than 10 dollars to create about 5 different stamps. I love these because it’s a fun DIY activity to do with your kids or at a birthday party/ in a classroom but then they can actually be used afterward too. This has definitely stamped my heart!
DIY Wine Cork Vase

Bloom, there it is! How aesthetically stunning is this thrifty DIY cork vase? I am absolutely obsessed with this idea. First of all, it’s cheap. We already agreed you drink a lot of wine and have plenty of corks laying around so no use buying a breakable glass vase
Also, it’s modernly unique, and perfect for customizing. You can stain all or some of the cork, arrange them how you see fit, set them up as tall or wide as you’d like, and you can choose the flowers going inside. She clearly gives directions on making a shorter and wider cork vase, or a taller and longer one, both absolutely gorgeous by design. I love this DIY project!
DIY Wine Cork Bath Mat

Scrub a dub dub, you’ll definitely want this bath mat outside your tub! How awesome is this bath mat made out of wine corks? I mean, this is absolutely genius. Wine corks are known to soak up water… Or wine if you’re bathing it (I don’t judge) and not only will it do its job in your bathroom, but it will look awesome in the process! Plus, this is so easy. You need a lot of corks for this, but once you have them you can hot glue them together on a board, let them sit overnight, and there you have it! Easy, affordable, and incredibly unique and decorative, what more could you want?

Someone once said “Art is the lie that makes us see the truth” and I guess my truth is… I have a drinking problem? But only when it comes to wine so I’m fine, right? I love this cork art, and I can think of a lot of people I could gift it to, that’s for sure. This is very easy to make… all you need to do for this DIY project is draw a wine bottle (or whatever you want), stain and assemble the corks, use hot glue, let it sit overnight, and you have whatever kind of art painting you’d want! As I said, this would be a great gift to give to someone, a loved one, or a great project with your kids. I always say yes to that extra glass, so I guess maybe my truth is I make POUR decisions
