20 Wine Cork Crafts Projects
I drink a fair amount of red wine. Over the years, I have accumulated quite a collection of wine corks while always assuming that “someday” I will make something with them.
I have several decorative bowls (pictured) where I keep my wine corks. A year ago, I gave my niece several gallon-sized zippered plastic bags stuffed full of my wine corks. Annnnnd I still have several more gallon-sized bags leftover!
After our latest trip to Italy I have even more wine to drink (hey, someone’s gotta do it!) and even more wine corks to use. I figured it was time for me to get busy looking for some crafts make with all these wine corks – either that or stop saving the corks (I do not think I am mentally able to do that!)
What crafts can you make with wine corks?

What can I do with leftover wine corks?
Drink coasters, wine cork crafts you can sell, artwork… the list is endless to making versatile and useful DIY wine cork projects to use of your wine corks.
Are wine corks worth anything?
Worth is in the eye of the beholder. When we were last in Italy, we took a tour of a vineyard. The breakdown of the cost of the bottle was very informative. The cost of the cork was (approximately) one dollar US – for each and every wine cork! If I could sell back my collection to a vineyard, I would have a lot more money to spend on … wine. Alas, this is not to be. You could gather your wine cork collection and put it up for auction. The going rate is about 10 cents per cork.
Can you compost wine corks?
What if you do not want to make anything with your leftover wine corks? Well, if you have a natural wine cork you can compost them as the cork is a natural product. That is why they make great garden markers as you can just crumble them and release them into the soil.
