#WineWednesday: How to Make a Wine Cork Trivet
Collector of corks too? Turn them into a functional trivet for your kitchen.
There is something quite nostalgic about keeping and collecting wine corks from our favorite places, moments, years and wines. Displaying the corks in clear glass containers is a lovely way to showcase them. However, I had another idea. Recently I moved into a new place and much of my kitchen is still in boxes. I decided to upcycle some corks into a trivet to protect my counter and tabletop. I’m considering making a few of these for gifts, especially for the upcoming holidays.
For this craft you will need:
- a high temperature hot glue gun or other permanent adhesive
- cork board
First, lay out your cork design on top of the large piece of corkboard. Once satisfied with the cork layout, trace the shape of the corks onto the corkboard, remove the corks and cut out the base from the corkboard.
Now it's time to to glue those corks into place using the pattern that you created in the beginning without the glue.
Glue the corks onto the corkboard a row at a time. Allow the trivet to dry. Now it is ready for use.
Enjoy the cork trivet for years to come. Try mixing up the pattern of the corks and the shape of the trivet. This project makes for a wonderful crafting night with friends. The possibilities are endless.
