This week’s 50+ is all about wine bottle corks.  Did you know there are a ton of ways to repurpose corks?  I was surprised at all the different projects I encountered while compiling this round-up.  Between this and the wine bottle repurpose round-up from awhile back, no part of your wine purchase will go to waste!

My friend Vivienne at The V Spot created a super cool piece of artwork, with a wine cork mat.  Go check out her detailed tutorial, and you are sure to see why her site is one of my very favorite places to be inspired.

This trivet and coaster set from horizontally sliced wine corks would make a great Christmas gift set for the wine lover in your life.  Or anyone really.  I am not a wine person, and I would love to get this for Christmas.  Eco friendly, handmade and functional… yes please.

Grab the kiddos and create some whimsical wine cork mushroom ornaments at Red Ted Art’s Blog.  These would be adorable on the Christmas tree, or as decor for a woodland creature themed party, don’t you think?  Anytime is a good time for cute mushrooms, I always say.

Bespangled Jewelry put a unique twist on the DIY stamp, using wine corks for this mustache stamp tutorial.  I’ve seen potatoes, erasers and foam for DIY stamps, but this is a first for wine corks.  What a clever repurpose!

At Simple City Style, I spied this wine cork placeholder.  I love the look, and while there is no tutorial, I think even the least crafty among us can crack this code.  Looks like you just cut what you want to be the bottom to create a flat surface.  Then make a slit across the top for the place card.

Check out these and several more cork upcycle projects and start hoarding those corks!
