Wine cork trivets

I originally saw the idea of wine cork trivets on Green Home Guide via Pinterest and thought, I have to make this ASAP!

I did not have a metal hose clamp to bind the corks together, so I took a differen’t approach so it would remain a free project.

Well, if you don’t count all the wine I had to drink. Just kidding, I collect corks.

About 50 wine corks

Hot glue and gun

Twine or ribbon of your choice

I used a old cork trivet from Ikea as my template.

Add hot glue to one side of a cork and glue the second cork to the side of the first cork.

Keep going until you have a full and complete circle of corks.

~Here are a few of my favorite Chardonnay’s for under $12~

Sorry, something had me thinking about wine.

Now just continue gluing the corks onto the inside of the circle, around and around you go.

I kept with the earthy feel and wrapped twine around the corks but you could add a pop of color with any type of ribbon.

Have fun drinking your wine so you can make lots of trivets.

  1. I love this Kristin and I totally want to make one now! I have a drawer full of wine corks (that makes me sound like a lush! LOL!) and this would be such a fun way to use them. Thanks so much for sharing it at Inspiration Friday! 🙂

  2. I love this Kristin! I like the twine accent you added. It seems easier than a lot of other wine cork projects too. In regards to Chardonnays under 12 bucks, I love Chateau Ste. Michelle’s. My husband and I like to challenge ourselves and find “fine” wines under 12 bucks…and we usually like them more than the expensive ones we’ve found.

  3. I love this idea. I’ve been thinking about making a trivet with the metal thingamajig, but I like the twine – easy and I have it on hand (along with 47,000 wine corks 🙂 You are getting crafty with your corks these days!! happy weekend! xoL.
