Repurpose Wine Corks Into Hangable Art

Repurpose Wine Corks Into Hangable Art

You can probably tell by our wine articles, {4 Things That Destroy Wine & Tasting Like A Pro, just to name a few}, that we love wine. What you may not know is that I haven’t tossed out any wine corks in the hopes that I’d come up with a creative repurposing idea. I’m sharing my creative repurposing idea & several more ideas to help you artfully repurpose your wine corks. I’m also sharing how hanging your art is just as important as the art.

Repurposing Wine Corks into DIY Hangable Art is incredibly easy! If you love saving your wine corks, but hate the idea of stuffing them in a vase, you need to try this DIY!

Displaying our wine corks in a vase in our kitchen was out of the question. Space comes at a premium in our kitchen & we need every bit of counter space for cooking, baking & meal-prepping. We found these game-changing typography letters & it solved our problem. (similar ones here.)

The best part is that the insides of the letters are hollow & wine corks fit perfectly! Displaying wine corks in an artful way is a win-win.

As you can see, we have quite a few more bottles of wine to drink before our WINE letters are filled. But…

…has there ever been a better reason to drink more wine? I love these letters, because they easily accommodate large champagne corks, as well as corks attached to plastic screw caps {on some Port-style wines}.

The best part about our DIY repurposed wine cork art? It visually enlarged the space by increasing the “visual line.” It’s easier to show than to explain… check out the pictures below. 

Remember how I said our kitchen counter space is limited? Well… so is the available wall space to hang anything. The space above the door in our kitchen leading to the garage was the only space available. This is how that space looked before we hung our repurposed wine cork art.

Now here is the same space with the repurposed wine cork art letters. Hanging these letters so high does visual wonders for this space.
