DIY Holidays...Wine Corks

I'm a crazed wine cork collector. Probably because we are avid wine drinkers too! B and I big fans of Pinot Noir and in the summer I really enjoy Pinot Grigio. My favorites are Smoking Loon and Mark West. We also have a bunch of local wineries where we try a lot of different flavors. Recently we bought Blueberry wine. A little on the sweet side but delicious.

For the holidays I am making it a DIY holiday so I'm trying to make a bunch of adorable crafts. I hope our family will enjoy too. I should mention I come from a family of wine lovers. 

I display them in mason jars on my kitchen counter.

Purchased this small wooden serving tray at The Dollar Tree.

This part took FOREVER but I had to fit the corks just perfect. It took a few hours. 
I tried to get a bunch labels to show through. 
I took a picture for memory, removed them, painted it white.
After the paint dried I added them back to the tray with tacky glue and hot glue. 

Its super cute and can be used for display or its a perfect size to use as a hot plate or bulletin board.

Such a cute craft idea! My husband and I have been collecting wine corks since we got married last year but unfortunately we don't drink too much; our collection is rather small :) xo

So cool! It came out great. We have a few corks saved from special events but not enough to make this. I think we need to start drinking more wine :)

Looks great! I used my collection of 200+ wine corks as candle fillers. It's amazing the things that you can do with corks!
