Hey wine lovers out there. Oh boy, wait till you see the super fun DIY project I have in store for you.


It all began when David + I started dating. We’re not big party animals (well David used to be, but I think he got tired LOL) but we do enjoy our occasional wine night every now + them, specially when we go to my parents country house in El Valle.


We started collecting our wine corks + unexpectedly we landed ourselves a big pile. When did we drink all those bottles? Times flies. As an irreparable neat freak, I knew I needed to find a crafty project that would help me recycled them + put them to good use. That’s how the light bulb ding donged + this project was born.


Made from sliced wine corks, this DIY Wine Cork Coasters are the perfect way to recycle + reuse an item that you may otherwise just toss in the trash.



For this project you’ll need:



  • At least 25 wine corks
  • Hot glue gun with glue sticks
  • Thin cork paper circles
  • A pocket knife
  • A cutting board
  • Coarse sand paper


step by step

When you gather all the troops, follow these oh to simple photo actions:




The possibilities are trully endless with this one. If you go on a wine binge (uhhh that sounds kinda fun + dangerous LOL), you could make cork wreaths + cork boards + cork mats + cork trivets + cork everything with this technique. Ohh + do keep in mind that the wider the variety of wine corks, the more eclectic + memorable your projects will look.



I don’t know about you folks, but I’m gonna make a handful of these for some house warming parties I have in the close horizon. Seems like the perfect gift + the best excuse for a happy hour (wink).
