Here at Wine Enthusiast, we know that exciting content is written every day about wine accessories. We strive to stay on top of it for our own benefit, but we want you to be in-the-know, too! As such, we are introducing an exciting new series on Winston’s Wisdoms: Around the Web in Wine Accessories, where we feature rundowns on the latest tips and ideas in various wine accessory topics. First up, our wine cork roundup!

Do-it-yourself cork projects are ever evolving in their creativity and practicality. We’ve compiled some of our favorite examples of inspiring wine cork creativity and wrapped them up in this page-length package to share with you. Below you’ll find ideas for key chains, picture frames and almost everything in between – the options for recycling and reusing your wine corks are seemingly endless. If we happened to miss a good post, or if you have some creative ideas to share of your own, feel free to drop a comment below!
Without further delay, the DIY craft ideas that we love the most…

If craftiness isn’t your thing, there are plenty of other ways to recycle your wine corks. ReCork is an organization that takes recycled corks and then reprocesses them into sandals by partnering with the Sole shoe company. They have drop-off centers in the U.S. and Canada, including our own headquarters in Mount Kisco, NY.

  2. What a clever article! Another wine accessory to add to your list: At Nomacorc, we partner with TerraCycle and various retailers to collect closures – traditional cork or alternative – and “upcycle” them into products like cork boards. Here’s more info: http://www.terracycle.net/brigades/cork-brigade.html?locale=en-US.

  3. I made table seating cards using wine corks and Moocards for my wedding.

  4. Really love the photos. It’s adorable!

  5. Very creative uses of corks… something I randomly keep in a decoration way…
