DIY Wine Cork Memo Board

by | Aug 2, 2016 | Upcycled DIYs

I have lots of saved wine corks waiting for a new project. I’m thinking we need to create one of these upcycled Wine Cork Memo Boards.  Construction is pretty easy: Cut corks in half and use wood glue or hot glue to attach them.

You will need:

Wine corks
Sheet of polystyrene, about 1,8-2cm thick
Wrapping paper
Glue gun
Cutting knife, make sure it is sharp
Pen, ruler and measuring tape…

Cutting the corks on half longwise is a bit tricky yet it will double the amount of corks for the board plus it is easier to set them and glue them to the board.
Tip: If you do a circular shape: Cut all of the corks in an angle instead of a straight line long wise to get triangle shapes. That would make the circular shape easier to achieve.

Measure and cut your sheet of polystyrene. Cut the 13,5 x 13,5cm square from the center of the foam sheet, leaving a 19,5 x 19,5cm frame with 3 cm sides.

Wrap the frame. Attach the wrapping paper to the front of the polystyrene frame. Wrap the paper around the outside edges and glue to the back of the frame.

Time for the glue! I put in all of the corks in the pattern that I wanted and then just picked up each cork one at a time and glued them.

Attach corks with a generous amount of hot glue to a line along the side. Depending on the side of the frame and the width of your corks, you may have to adjust the spacing to make sure you don’t leave any bald spots.

Petty easy and pretty functional! How about saving the wine corks from a wedding and making a little gift for the couple?
I hope you enjoy this DIY Wine Cork Memo Board project. And, always save wine corks. Cheers!
