I made a cork board out of old wine corks. It was pretty easy and self-explanatory.

First, I bought a frame. I popped out the glass and turned the matting in the back around. Then I drew lines on the inside of the matting with a pencil to represent where the front of the frame stopped.


Then I cut up corks. I used all of my red wine ones and let them radiate out from the top because I love dark red wine. I used wood glue. I also glued the plastic tops to any cork whiskey stoppers.  When they dried, I flipped it over and attached some thumbtacks. I’ve been adding whiskey cork-tops as they’ve become available.

Warning: If your on my holiday list, there’s a good chance you may receive one of these for Christmas or a birthday. Sorry. What can I say? We accumulate a lot of corks, they’re fun to make and everyone needs somewhere to post all those pizza coupons.
