A "Spin" off the typical Cork Boardcomments (1) October 16th, 2008 in gallery
Making a Cork board is a very practical way to reuse/recycle old wine corks and create a unique and usable piece of art. There have been many tutorials to make a"Wine Cork Board" so I decided to give it a try but with a little twist.
I first got the idea from Martha Stewart ; she had a great tutorial for making Cork hot pads with a metal pipe clamp. My first intentions were to make these since I became very frustrated with making a typical cork board, the measurements and the glue (ahhh), but then I got an idea...the circles are very sturdy and would make a unique look if I packed them together to create the cork board.
Visit my blog http://inspirationturndesign.blogspot.com for directions on making your own twisted corkboard. If you make this project e-mail me a picture to firstname.lastname@example.org I would love to see the finished piece, I am sure they will all turn out different.
