Have old bamboo coasters lying about? Well, save those corks because we’ve found 10 more innovative ways to use them all around your house. Who knew something so simple can be so versatile!
1. Cork Magnets
Gather some magnet strips, a knife, glue, and some wine corks. Press firmly on the flat side. And that is all.
2. Drawer Knobs
Hold a twist in place with a screwdriver. Next, firmly press a champagne cork against the screw and twist in a clockwise motion. Do the same for all of the drawers. Your drawer knobs are prepared.
You will need to gather up some potting soil, a puncher, paring knife, magnets and little succulents. Cut a hollow shape at the middle of each cork. Attach magnets into each cork by pushing hard. Next, fill the hollow hole with soil and then place a tiny succulent inside every one. Add a few drops of water and attach the planters to a metallic surface.
4. Jewelry Frame
On the lookout for ways to arrange your jewelry neatly? All you need is a frame that you like. Paint it. Cut out corks in long circular sizes and fuse into the framework. If you want to personalize it a little more, you can wrap the corks on your favorite fabric.
All you need are cork tiles, white paint and brush, painter’s tape, and picture hanging strips. Use the tape to the corks and proceed to make stripes. Next, arrange tiles in a pattern and then begin painting.
6. Mouse pad
All you have to do is cut cork to size then bond them together along with a piece of thick cork paper. It’s better to keep it simple but you can design any shape you wish.
