so crafty, thats me!

Look what I've made! Wine cork trivets and coasters! Steve and I drink a lot of wine, so I thought I'd make good use of the corks. I will admit that we didn't drink all of this wine...I purchased some corks from ebay! I bought a bag of 500 corks for only $15 shipped! So, I've been making trivets and coasters! They are adorable, and super fun to make!





Anyone want one? I have a lot more corks and I can only use so many trivets :)

how cute! I have been saving the corks of the wine Alson and I drink. Someday I will be crafty too!

Those are too awesome, what a great idea! I've been saving all of my corks for my grandmother...she uses them for her own craft projects. I think she was a little shocked when I handed her the bag of them...meaning I'd had a whole lot of wine. I'll have to tell her about the bag of 500!

could you make a legal size corkboard? That would be kinda cool.

You send me 6 cork coasters and I promise to send you something back.

Now you can sell these in your own Etsy shop!

Cute!! Dave's mom's boyfriend keeps all the corks from the wine he drinks, so we got him the bulletin board kit for Christmas.

I love that there's modge-podge in the background of this photo. That reminds me so much of my grandma, you have no idea : )

You're a crafty genius, lex!

I love this! Such a cool idea.

How cute would these be under our awesome recycled wine glasses?

I want one!

omg! i've been saving my corks for this very reason!!! only $15 for a bag of 500?? hmm...but it's so much more fun to say each one of those came from a bottle i drank...let's people know how much i'm willing to sacrifice in the name of being crafty ;)

ooo very cute! You should sell them on etsy.

Could you cut them in half so the side on the table is flat? that would be awesome.

La Petite Belle said...

yeah, you should totally sell those on Etsy!!

I remember seeing that idea somewhere ... and then online somewhere for sale for a crazy amount. Bookmarked it awhile back to make but not drinking wine fast enough - love the idea!
