A few weeks ago we shared a DIY wine-bottle planter project — but what to do with the corks?
The good folks at Sustainablog have assembled a list of projects you can make with upcycled corks — bathmats, birdhouses, Christmas wreaths and more. Someone even built a chair out of old wine corks.
Drinking wine can be nice. Drinking hundreds of bottles of wine so that you can make upcycled cork projects is probably a mix of overwhelming, unhealthy, dangerous and cost-prohibitive. So you can always stop by bars and restaurants and ask them for their used corks. Cut down on other people’s trash too!
