Wine Cork Art

 My husband made this little piece of artwork the other day. 

He started by cutting a flat side on the back of each cork so they could easily be glued in.   He then cut half of them a little shorter so they would all fit in.  (two corks sideways are shorter than one cork longways, so the longways ones get cut)

He made the frame, but had it this far before I got a picture--sorry!  He used the popsicle sticks to make sure they were lined up straight.

He glued them in, alternating back and forth, making sure that the winery names were going the right way.

And it's done.  What an inexpensive and fun piece of art.

Thanks for coming by!

  1. Fun project, and I hope you got to enjoy all that wine!!

  2. Love this...I made a removable wall like this for my bar area - this would be a good accent piece to match it!

  3. He did a beautiful job! I have seen these in stores, and they weren't cheap! Your hubby is definitely a keeper!

  4. I love this...a friend of mine did this to the counter top in her butler's pantry. She lives in a really old house and the counter top was yellow formica. It was such an improvement! You are so lucky to have a handy husband...better keep him around! Have a good week.

  5. Hubby did an awesome job Pam!! You guy's really need to go into business together!! Martina

  6. Your husband is great Pam! He is so full of talent. Together you guys make a great team!

  7. A fun project - and likely some fond memories too.
    - Joy

  8. Nice, Pam! That project took patience cutting all of those corks! Hubbie earned some gold stars, huh!?!?!?

  9. That is neat Pam! I found a pin like it that was used for jewelry. Love it!

  10. Very clever project, Pam! And how nice to use the corks instead of just tossing them. I've been saving mine for "something" and now I've been inspired by your art. Nice job.
    Lynn :)

  11. Now I know what to do with all those corks that we've been saving!

  12. Love it Pam...A friend of mine used to work at a bar and collected corks for years. She did what you did, only in the largest frame you have ever seen. She uses it as a bulletin board in her kitchen....

    Take care,

  13. I love this idea; how neat. Guess I better get busy emptying wine bottles :)

  14. Ahhh if only I drank wine more often. LOL That one bottle a year won't make this for me. Love it!

  15. What a fun project Pam...looks great and thanks for sharing it at NTT! Now you need to come by and share those great deals you found out at yard that 1st can!!!


  16. Oh wow! I love it! You and your husband are so creative.
