Default Any ideas using corks?

I've been collecting wine corks for quite awhile. I have a big Ziplock bag full. I was thinking I'd use them for a project with my Girl Scout troop - but school's out and we didn't end up using them.

Does anyone have any creative ideas on what to do/make with corks? I'd love to see samples if you have any photos.

Thanks.

I have filled a tray (from the unfinished wood aisile at michaels) with the corks on their sides in a checkerboard style 2 or 3 for each square - depending on the width and length of the cork, hope that makes sense. I also have a small tray filled with corks as a trivet. Love them! Glue them in and seal...

Default corks

I used mine like a stamp. The end that the cork screw didn't pierce is a perfect circle and other end looks a little like a wheel. I sort of used it for a one sheet wonder. I will try to scan and post a masculine card I made frim it in my gallery.

If you have a girl scout troop, keep them 'til Christmas! There is a really cute reindeer ornament you can make with them. I saw patterns for it several places online when I was searching at Christmas for crafts for my students.

I've actually made a cut into them, and stamped little cards with people's names on them to make placecard holders.

This is what I'm going to do. Have been saving corks for quite some time. And, I have champagne corks for the corners.

I had my DH cut some plywood bigger than our dart board and am using cork to cover the wood so we don't put holes in our walls.

You might be able to use them on your cards.

Try slicing them in little circles and then you could use them to stamp on with Alpha Bet's or use Alpha Stickers.

You could also make Coaster's out of them Trivets.

How about a Cork Vase Cover.

I found a place on the internet that will give you more ideas for using your corks.

On martha stewart a lady had the same question. She glued them to a board for a display to show all the different kinds of wine they had. she may have made a message board out of it too.

I have a collection of wine corks that I placed in a glass vase ... makes for interesting home decor in my dining room!
