Wine cork art is an innovative way of using corks that we wouldn’t otherwise care about once a bottle of wine is finished. Instead of throwing them away, you can utilize them to make some wine cork boards. Be it your drawing room or study, a homemade wine cork board lends a subtle look to your interior.
All you have to do is stick the corks onto the board using glue. If you are using a blackboard, or a recycled piece of wood, you need to glue the corks on a cardboard sheet and paste it over the blackboard. Now, creativity is how you are arranging the wine corks on the board. There are plenty of detailed tutorials for that below.
