Cork craft projects

In April  Anthropologie had displays in their stores – all about corks! They teamed up with the Cork Forest Conservation Alliance (CFCA) to promote the use of natural corks. Did you know that corks are 100% natural, renewable, recyclable and biodegradable? Yes there is actually a Cork forest conservation alliance. When buying wine or champagne I never thought about whether the corks were natural or not. Unfortunately I didn't think to keep corks now I am sorry I didnt. I became obsessed with crafts made from corks.

Here is a cork bulletin board

Cork Trivet and coasters. LOVE, love love this!
The corks were sewn together.

Well there you have it! I was amazed at all the creative ways to use corks in crafts. And there are actually more ideas...  some of the projects were made using cut wine corks and hot glue and an exacto knife to cut through the corks, when making cork letters the letters should look backward so they will look right when stamped,
Please let us see your cork projects! Soon as we drink more wine we will display ours!
