Wine Cork Trivet

A couple of years ago I decided to make wine cork trivets to give as Christmas gifts.  My husband made the base out of extra wood we had and I glued in the wine corks. The perfect gift since it was home made and both of us had a part in it. I still had two more bases left and decided to make another one.

First you need the base:

I have been collecting wine corks for a long time. Last weekend we went to a new wine bar in town and  they gave us a bag of corks for free!

I practice by arranging the corks in the base until they all fit nicely. Then I glue gun them in!

So Fun and easy! They can really be used as a trivet or a decoration!

We are still in the middle of re-modeling the basement will post pictures soon! We had some issues with the tile guy so that bumped us a week or so back ugh.....
Running is going great. I hope to get in 24 miles in this week and plan to keep building from that. Just base building now and have a hard course half in May and a full in the fall.

  1. That's really cool! I am so uncreative it's not even funny. I better start drinking wine so I can make fun things! :) Thanks for sharing!
