Wondering what to do with your wine corks once you’re done with the bottle? Well, wine cork DIY projects are definitely an option you should try!

I like to unwind some nights with a glass of wine after a long day and I’ve always thought about saving wine corks for decorative projects. I did a little search online and was amazed to find so many fun craft projects using wine corks. I am now saving my wine corks to start making awesome craft projects myself. I’ve always wanted to try something cool using corks and not just throw them away.

I found that people are selling wine corks online. So, If you don’t want to wait to get enough wine-corks to start on your craft projects you can buy them on eBay and Craigslist, which is pretty neat. Below are some really creative ideas using wine corks to try making yourself, let the cork saving begin!
