Over time, we can accumulate a mountain of corks, so here are ideas for DIY to recycle them in pretty creations!
To make this heart, you will need a good collection of corks of different wines … Once your collection amassée, it is enough to stick the corks together with hot glue. If you have a lot of caps, but the colors do not lend themselves to this kind of gradient, you can make a mosaic or paint them with a gradient of paint.
Glue three corks with hot glue, plant a stick in the middle one and you have just made a raft! You can also cut a single plug vertically and make two sailboats … Try several models, whatever you do, your boat will float! You can prepare a whole fleet for bath games!
To place under a plant or to accommodate the visit, cut your caps in half and stick them together until you get a big enough rectangle. You can even write a welcome message with a bit of black paint and a stencil.
What better way to protect your table than a light, unique and hand-made coaster? Glue the caps and cut around a circle with an X-Acto knife. You can have them painted by children for an even more unique look!
Cut out the shape of a letter from your initials or those of your children in a rigid material and paste caps that will completely cover your model. You can then hang your work on the door of the person who owns this initial.
Two caps, a handful of paper clips and you’re ready to make skits that will entertain children. With a little effort, these animated caps could fit into your decor to bring a small air of lightness.
With matches, toothpicks and small napkins, you can create reindeer for the kids! And if it’s not Christmas time, just say it’s caribou!
A floating door
Make a custom door by attaching a hook to a cork. Your port will be easy to find at the bottom of your handbag and your keys will not risk falling into the pool!
You only need a cork to make a stamp. Dig the shape with a knife and give the stamp to your child. Each bottle will have a different and unique stamp.
Rina-watt made these two necklaces in memory of the late grandmother of a customer. She had the good idea of turning the clasp of a drunk bottle in good company into jewelry to remember the sweet moments spent with the missing person.
