Wine Cork Wreath / Corkboard

Saturday, August 22, 2009

The last Italian restaurant we went to, there was a wine cork wreath - something similar to this one - by the host's desk. That gave me an idea to make my own, but I wanted to do something different that could be used different ways...

Ceiling medallion from hardware store
Spray paint (I used a textured brown paint)
Wine corks - this one used about 65
Hot glue gun, hot glue sticks
Cork trivet (if you like)

Spray paint the ceiling medallion:

Apply wine corks to the medallion's center using hot glue:

Here it can be used as a wreath:

...or you could hot glue a cork trivet (those are available anywhere from Target to chef's shops) to the back. Lying flat with a glass bowl or plate in the center, it could hold grapes, or part of a cheese course at a supper party. You could also hang it on a wall and make it into a message board:

Thumbtacks can hold notes on the cork trivet and the individual wine corks too:
If you haven't been saving your own corks, people have them for sale on eBay, too.
