Crafts: Wine Cork Bulletin Board

This was a little project I came up with to put our collection of wine corks to some use. I found a cork board on clearance at Marshalls  for $5- thus the animal motif - and simply hot glued corks onto it, using champagne corks to form a ledge along the bottom. This makes for a novel bulletin board !

What a cute idea. I love using old corks in projects. I once covered a whole table in them. Your bulletin board looks great. Thanks for sharing.

I did a cork thang too, check it out!: http://housefinally.blogspot.com/2010/02/wine-cork-tray.html

Your blog is adorable!

Amanda said...

Cute idea! I like the ledge, too!

What a great idea. Goggle is hiding the picture but I get the idea. I think one covered in corks all over would be cool too, it would take a ton of corks though.
I am working my way through all my old followers and going back and forth between the old blog and the new one so forgive me if you have already signed up to refollow me. If you haven't please resign up. I am not allowed to take my followers with me when I moved my blog to my own site, so to get my updates in your reader you need to re-sign up.
Have you checked out my give-a-way for this week? I posted it on Friday.

Thanks for posting to the party. I am just about done with all of the things involved with the move and I get get back to all the fun blog stuff-visits and crafts.
Thanks,

I definitely want to read more soon. BTW, rather good design you have at this site, but don’t you think it should be changed once in a few months?

How cute! I knew there was a reason to hang onto those things. LOL

What a cute idea! And cork is so popular nowadays, at least, it seems to be.

Thanks for linking up to Making Your Home Sing Monday.

Oh this is amazing. I love it. It makes a standard bulletin board look mundane. Now I need to start drinking more. Thank you so much for sharing this on the Boardwalk Bragfest. It's a wonderful project!

Happy Tacklin' Tuesday! I love that board! Great job!

Even more I love your header! Very bright.

Ughhh, I hate exclamations to use them every sentence though. Just excited to be here I guess. hehe. :)

MessyMissy said...

Oooo, I was just offered a large quantity of wine corks. You got my brain working, thanks!!

the cape on the corner said...

love it, looks great. i wish i had saved all of mine, i've started to now. i'm putting them in an apothecary jar.

Your Frugal Friend, Niki said...

What a great idea! That is a great way to reduce, reuse, and recycle. And I see people giving away lots of corks all the time on Freecycle.

I hope you'll stop by and visit over at Free 2 Be Frugal sometime soon.

Nikki said...

I LOVE wine corks, I think they're so pretty and I hate the fact that so many people/places throw them away. I love seeing projects like this where someone is showcasing their beauty! Great work!!!!!! :)

Maridith @ Strictly Homemade said...

This is a great idea for old wine corks. I am going to send this to my sister who has a huge collection of wine corks and nothing to do with them.

Thanks so much for joining me at Gifts From the Heart Linky Party. I hope to see you next month on the 20th!

Have a blessed day!!

Melissa said...

I've been wanting to make one of these wine cork bulletin boards - yours turned out great!

I love this and the vintage images you used to photograph the project. Super cute. I have all my corks in an apothecary jar on top of our fridge. I try to write a note with a sharpee on each, especially if it was a special occassion. Nice to meet you!

Very Cute! I've been saving corks for my SIL forever! I'll have to share this with her to get her motivated :)

Laura said...

This turned out so pretty!!

Run DMT said...

What a great idea! Good crafty Christmas gifts, too! I've also seen corks in frames to be used as pot holders.

We save every cork from every wine bottle we open and so I have a ridiculous number of corks in vases and lying around in other random places. I haven't used any of them in crafts yet, but I will...someday.

Shell said...

This looks very similar to a wine cork board I helped a lady make - minus the animal motif lol.

kidswonderart said...

I just found you blog from Simply Sweet Home Fridays.

I'll have to give this a try for my mom. This would be a great gift.

Thanks,
Michele
