Wine Corkboard

Cork board

Over the summer (thanks to my good friend 2 buck Chuck…well more like 3 buck Chuck in NYC) I drank a lot of wine. And, for some reason I always saved the corks. At first it was just a few stacked on my microwave, but pretty soon they had to be moved to a coffee mug, then a bigger coffee mug and finally, a zip lock. I needed something to do with all these corks I had and so I was inspired to make this wine cork board. It is super easy to make and only requires that you drink a lot of wine, who can say no to that?

Wine corks
Old picture frame with the glass and picture parts taken out (this is for the shell of the corkboard.)

Arrange corks however you want so that they fit inside your frame. Then glue down and your finished you have your very own awesome wine cork board. A little tip, it is cool if you glue the corks so the label shows because it then can serve a pratical function of a cork board while at the same time showing off your awesome wine taste.

  1. This is really cool! 2 questions though…what size frame did you use, and about how many wine corks? I want a big one!

  4. Mine is 18 x 18 and I used about 128 corks (but as you can see from pictures I put them in groups of 2). I think that you could do one bigger if you wanted and it would look good, the most important thing is to make sure you have enough corks so start drinkin’

  5. Bush is forever saying that democracies do not invade other countries and start wars. Well, he did just that. He invaded Iraq, started a war, and killed people. What do you think? What is he doing to us, and what is he doing to the world?
    What happened to us, people? When did we become such lemmings?
    The more people that the government puts in jails, the safer we are told to think we are. The real terrorists are wherever they are, but they aren’t living in a country with bars on the windows. We are.

  10. Two new studies show why some people are more attractive for members of the opposite sex than others.

    The University of Florida, Florida State University found that physically attractive people almost instantly attract the attention of the interlocutor, sobesednitsy with them, literally, it is difficult to make eye. This conclusion was reached by a series of psychological experiments, which were determined by the people who believe in sending the first seconds after the acquaintance. Here, a curious feature: single, unmarried experimental preferred to look at the guys, beauty opposite sex, and family, people most often by representatives of their sex.

    The authors believe that this feature developed a behavior as a result of the evolution: a man trying to find a decent pair to acquire offspring. If this is resolved, he wondered potential rivals. Detailed information about this magazine will be published Journal of Personality and Social Psychology.

    In turn, a joint study of the Rockefeller University, Rockefeller University and Duke University, Duke University in North Carolina revealed that women are perceived differently by men smell. During experiments studied the perception of women one of the ingredients of male pheromone-androstenona smell, which is contained in urine or sweat.

    The results were startling: women are part of this repugnant odor, and the other part is very attractive, resembling the smell of vanilla, and the third group have not felt any smell. The authors argue that the reason is that the differences in the receptor responsible for the olfactory system, from different people are different.

    It has long been proven that mammals (including human) odor is one way of attracting the attention of representatives of the opposite sex. A detailed article about the journal Nature will publish.

  11. One of the things we like to do is sign the special corks. Then when they get framed up there are tons of memories as well as a cool board!

    Although you might be one of the lucky few to find a mentor within your company, with the dynamic nature of the workplace it wouldn’t be wise to assume they will be there long term. You want someone now who understands the marketplace and can guide you to be an employee that not only can further their career in
    the company they are in, but also in the marketplace should the business suddenly sour.

    For that, you may want to hire a career coach who can have a good view of the overall picture. They will take your goals into account, your present achievements, and help you to make decisions in your life to get to where you want to be.

  14. I’ve been wanting to make a cork board for awhile, just haven’t had the time. I really like the pattern you put your corks in, very nice! A bonus to these is that they are attractive bulletin boards, not like the ones you buy in the store. And there are stories that can be told from each cork.

  21. Hey guys, long time lurker here so thought I would finally post. I’m a little shy because I’m a girl and it seems there are mostly guys here but I wanted to know why it seems you guys don’t have lives. Are the guys with very high post counts really better posters than the ones with less?

  22. Man, talk about weird commenters… To the previous commenter – what the heck are you talking about?
    There’s only one valid point in this article, and if people are too stupid to see it, I won’t tell them what it is.
    This is a clear example of a harmless meaningless post, so why delete it, mr Moderator?
    I write like mad, every day, and no one visits my blog, that looks similar to yours. What could I be doing wrong?
    I live in a basement, with my parents. Typical stereotype – an overweight looser. Please don’t remove my comments.

  24. Greetings! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog
    platform are you using for this website? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
