I’ve been wanting to make a wine cork pin board for pretty much forever. I thought I drank more than enough wine to make this a reality, but making a decent sized pin board actually takes a TON of corks. Get drinking, my friends.
Here’s what you’ll need:
♥A foam board or piece of cardboard as your base. I used a small piece of foam board that I had laying around! (If you want to get really fancy, you can buy a frame and fill it in!) This was my first cork board though, and I wanted to keep it simple.
♥Glue. Soooo much freaking glue. I only bought one tube of tacky glue, then resorted to using two backup Elmer’s glues, and STILL didn’t have enough. Just get a shieeeez ton of glue… You worked hard drinking all that wine! The least you can do is make sure those corks are well attached to your base.
♥Corks. Needless to say, enough to fill your canvas.
♥An old paintbrush to spread glue
♥Get creative with patterns! There are so many online / on Pinterest! I really liked the simple tiled approach, which is pretty much fool-proof for noobs like me!
♥Cutting corks in half would really help in terms of affixing them sturdily to a base, but it’s sooo hard to cut a cork in half! I have super sharp knives and still couldn’t slice these suckers. (I even almost lost a finger. Not down.)
And you’re done! So easy and such a cute pin board for photos, recipes, calendars, and more! :)
