Have old cork coasters lying around? Well, save those corks because we’ve found 10 more innovative ways to use them all around your property. Who knew something so simple can be so versatile!
1. Cork Magnets
Cut corks in half lengthwise and them apply adhesive on each magnet strip. Press firmly on the flat side. And that’s all.
2. Drawer Knobs
Remove present drawer knobs and replace them with your pointed screws. Hold a screw 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 drawer knobs are prepared.
You’ll need to collect some potting soil, a puncher, paring knife, magnets and tiny succulents. Cut a hollow shape at the center of each cork. Attach magnets into every cork by pushing hard. Next, fill the hollow hole with dirt and then place a tiny succulent inside each one.
4. Jewelry Frame
Looking for ways to organize 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 frame. If you wish to personalize it some more, you can wrap the corks in your favorite fabric.
Use the tape to the corks and proceed to make stripes. Next, arrange tiles in a pattern and then start painting.
6. Mouse pad
All you’ve got to do is cut cork to size then bond them together along with a piece of thick cork paper. It’s far better to keep it simple but you can design any form you desire.
7. Cork Wall
Have you been on the lookout for ways to spice up your kitchen? Well no more. All you need is a piece of wood cut out to the specific size of the area you wish to cover up. Then begin massaging half-cut corks onto piece of wood before every inch is covered. You can opt to either try a pattern layout or just fasten them in a row formation. When the wood is completely coated, attach it to the wall and voila!
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 holes out and fill every hole with a writing apparatus.
You will need A LOT of wine and champagne corks. All you’ve got to do is simply gather 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 along with your corks? All you will need is a good knife, a sharpie and a whole lot of corks. Next, draw whatever design you want and then simply cut around it and slowly chip away any excess wood. Use ink and fill in your layouts and voila!
