Wine corks have been around for centuries. They are an important part of collecting and enjoying wine and are often given as gifts to show affection for another person. There are many ways to make wine cork crafts with your own two hands, or with the use of a kit. The craft is not very difficult, but does demand some practice. Here is a guide to help you make some beautiful wine cork crafts.
One of the most popular wine cork crafts is an adorable bath mat. This is a really cute and fun project that is perfect for the baby or young child. Craft stores sell pattern books on how to make all sorts of cute items, including this lovely bath mat. If you don’t know how to make a bath mat, then you can purchase one at a craft store or, of course, make one on your own.
Another of the cute wine corks, that you can make for a child, is a personalized “stash” of bath time essentials. To make this fun craft, you will need a few bottles of different brands of bath soaps, a bottle spray paint, and a rubber band. Wrap each bottle in the rubber band and then tape them down so they cannot move. You will need three different sizes of bottles so that you can create three different styles. After you have purchased the bottles of soap, you can continue on with the crafting.
These next two wine cork crafts are fun and easy to do. They require some plastic baking in a triangle shape, as well as some clear fishing line, some fabric and a few buttons (to attach to the corks). These two crafts are a little elaborate, but it’s a lot of fun to do.
For the last two wine cork crafts, you will be decorating two wine bottles. You will need some clear fishing line, fabric, a rubber band and a hole punch. Wrap the fishing line around the bottle necks and make it fit snuggly around the bottle. Then, using the hole punch, pull the fabric tight and create a loop that will allow you to continue with the other bottle.
Both of these crafts are a lot of fun to make and beautiful to look at. If you do not want to do them yourself, both of these craft ideas are very easy to find supplies for online. The full tutorial will walk you through all of the steps to complete these wonderful crafts. After you have finished, you will be proud of your handiwork. Both of these are perfect gifts for friends and family members who enjoy fine art and homemade home decorations.

One such crafty idea is a gift idea for someone who loves to be personalized. You could make a unique gift for someone who already has a lot of wine cork crafts made for them at Christmas or other holidays.

You can also use wine cork stamps for personalization. I had a friend who made a wine cork storage tag for her dining room table with her initials and the date of her graduation. She had a gorgeous wine cork purse with the monogrammed initials and a pretty bow. She said she was so excited to give this gift to her mother that she had planned the gift well in advance. The tag was a huge success and she has used it ever since!

You will be amazed at the result of your efforts and will enjoy the process of turning your leftover wine cork crafts into treasures you can enjoy for years to come.
