Some ideas I found online:
1. Use them in your garden: Cut them into halves, put them in the food processor or other grinder and use them to add to the soil as a mulch. They don’t cost anything and they retain the moisture in the flowerbeds and they don’t glob together.
2. Cut into shapes (moon, starts, alphabet) for stamping, even with paints.
3. Since you like feeding birds (previous post), cut your corks in half lengthwise about 1/4 in. and glue them on birdhouses. You can paint or stain them any color you want.
4. Make a corboard: see http://www.crafterslovecrafts.com/wine-cork-crafts.html. It looks really cool
Good luck Launi!
I’d slice them with a saw, to make thick circles, maybe paint them, and stick a magnet on one side. That way it’s like a little cork board on a metal board. Haha!! 🙂
Or I’d think of some creative way to make them into some cool Christmas ornaments. I like doing that with random things i have. I have collected a bunch of acorn tops if you could use those for anything. We need to make a craft night, and we’ll all bring our random stuff.
you could make a cork wreath like lollychops.
i’ve seen one irl and they’re neat. you’d need to save a bit more though.
It is true – you can find the answer to ANYTHING on Google. The best idea I found was a trivet, you know, to set hot things on. You have to have a frame of sorts and then you arrange the corks on their side in a rail fence pattern, quilt pattern – but that’s the only way I know how to describe it (that was the one I liked the best)to fill in the frame. It looked way cool and would sure save your table or counter from the heat of a pan.
Uhhh… good question! 🙂 Wash them? Heh.
I suppose there’s SOMEthing crafty and cut out there… let me know when you find it and I’ll help if I can! 🙂
Great ideas guys! Thanks so much. This gives me some great ideas to work with.
