DIY Wine Cork Bulletin Board

How to Upcycle Wine Corks into Home Decor

Stay organized, eco-chic style with this cork board made from… corks!  This project is simple, functional, stylish and can be super inexpensive with a thrifted frame.  Start saving those wine corks, ask your friends to save them, and hit your local recycle center to see if they can hook you up with some.  You are going to need quite a few, especially if you have a large frame.

3.  Starting in the center, begin gluing corks in your chosen pattern directly onto the frame backing.

4.  When you come to the edges where full corks no longer fit, cut the corks where necessary to create the appropriate shape to fit the space.  Continue until the entire frame is full.

Seal corks after they are all placed for a glossy finish if desired!  These would be great for displaying bride and groom photos for your wine themed wedding reception.

  1. Hello,

    I was wondering if for this project it would be possible to cut the corks in half and then glue them to use less corks on a bigger area?
