How bout making some letters like these? I could cut the letter out of wood or a heavy cardboard and hot glue the corks on top? This is a little time intensive. I think they actually cut the cork names out with an exacto knife and applied to some of the corks. Still very unique and interesting idea also obviously a big hit since they sell for $67.50 on Etsy and are on back order! I could start making them just so I could drink the wine to get the corks! Or may be not! That might create issues….

Another idea I found were these cool orbs created by pinning the corks on end into a styrofoam ball or chains make from corks that have been sliced and joined to create a chain link rope. How cool would these be as drapery tie backs. These were done in where else… Anthropologie! I love the way they take nothing and make art with it!
Here is another picture of cork art from Anthropologie. The ends of the cork were dipped in paint and then used created the cork sculpture! Sometimes I go into Anthropologie just to see what they have created. I secretly want that job! I heard they have a art room in the back of the stores just for the person who creates all the art! How awesome would that be?
|How bout this great idea for herb growers… cork herb markers from Lisa at “Let Your Light Shine“, a set of these would make a great gift…|
This cute monogram board was created by Kathryn at “I can’t find the time”, you gotta love the name of her blog! I wish I had a nickel for every time I say that. I could hire someone to do all my projects with all those nickels!
