Here at VinePair, we’re always looking for interesting ways to recycle the remains from a night of drinking wine. And, as I noted in June, while I love the idea of being crafty, I rarely find the time to be as creative as I want to be. That said, a recent Etsy exploration may have just given me the kick in the creative pants that I needed. A little DIY cork project research on the site led me to a number of crafts and ideas that I may finally try out myself.
But while Etsy is ever the source of inspiration, it’s nice to know that with a click of a button (or two), these items can be mine in an instant.
Here are a few highlights from my research:
