Wine Cork Magnets

Hello World,

I like to collect wine corks. I love the texture, the unique designs, and how great they are as a craft material. I really want to make a cork board someday, but collecting them authentically is taking me what feels like forever. So, if you are like me and want a project that can be done with limited wine corks, here is a project for you:


Wine cork magnets. Simple right? Check out the tutorial below:

1. Gather your supplies: wine corks, an adhesive magnet sheet, and a box cutter / exacto knife.

2. Carefully, cut your wine cork in half lengthwise.

3. Cut your magnetic sheet to the same size as your wine cork.

4. Peel off the paper backing and stick the magnetic to your wine cork.

That's it. Wam bam, you have some unique magnets! 

If you want to be really thrifty, repurpose magnets (say the ones you get from Dominos or your dentist) and just glue them to the back of your corks. These could be a cute gift for a birthday, bachelorette party, anniversary (especially if the cork held significance).

Happy Crafting!
