There’s nothing like a craft and sip night with your favorite bottle of wine. But what do to with all the corks?
Turn them into your craft!
This DIY Wine Cork Rainbow makes the perfect decoration in your house and the excuse to buy more wine.
I personally love different types of wine. My favorite is sweet reds though!
When I went to Italy during college, we had wine every night for dinner. I think that experience really helped me love wine even more. It brings back those fond memories.
Speaking of things I love, rainbows mean SO much to my family. They’re a signal of hope, Mila, and creativity. That’s why I had to create a rainbow with all these wine corks I have in my jar!
If you’re ready to do something with yours, here’s what you’ll need for this DIY:
- Wine corks
- Hot glue gun
- Glue sticks
To cut down on the weight of the rainbow, I decided to cut the wine corks in half. This took a little bit, but there’s a ton of blogs and videos that cover the best ways to cut them in half.
I just grabbed a cutting board and knife to chop!
Before starting, I poured myself a glass of wine and started organizing them.
At first, I did it randomly. It still looked super cute, but I thought ombré-ing the colors from dark to light would look adorable. You could definitely paint your corks whatever colors too. I just personally like the natural shades of cork.
After you get it all laid out, it’s time to use your glue gun.
This obviously takes a little bit of time and patience. Just know that your rainbow probably won’t come out exactly how you set it up.
I hit glued the sides first. Then to help make it more sturdy, I hot glued the back where the creases were. Honestly, it probably didn’t need that extra step, but I’d rather just get it all done at once.
It’s been a little while since I’ve crafted just for me, but I think it turned out amazing!
I took down the big picture frame that held all my corks and replaced it with this. My kitchen now has a happy rainbow that blends in perfectly. I smile every time I glance at my wine cork rainbow.
For your next girls night, I hope you can try out this DIY Wine Cork Rainbow and enjoy a big glass of wine. Crafting is always so relaxing.
Before you go, let me know in the comments what your favorite type of wine is. If you don’t drink wine, have you ever crafted with wine corks before? Would you try?
