15 Amazingly Useful Ways to Reuse Wine Corks

I am so excited to display my new gift on the wall! How gorgeous is that?

My sister-in-law made the Pinterest-inspired wine cork monogram for me this Christmas. It is so creative and gorgeous — a perfect way to reuse all those wine corks.

I’ve just been amazed at all the clever, useful ways to upcycle wine corks. I have always saved them. Both because I just can’t stand to add to the landfills and because each one is so fun & unique, I hate to get rid of it.

So, I’m thrilled to discover so many great ways to put them to use. Here are 15 more wine cork projects:
