First of all, I love working with wine corks and I love getting my home and office organized too. The corks have the winery’s logo which adds interest to any cork project. Cork projects always turn out cute and useful. I love the useful projects because I am trying to cut my material items. Personally, I am beginning to work on an only have what I need or love items in my home.
I completed a corked roof on my mailbox last year which I still love today. Recently, I found solar-powered flashing light string. I placed the lights around the outside of the house mailbox and it really looks cute at night. Please take a look at the Wine Cork Mailbox Roof.
Required Materials for the Organized Bulletin Board
- Wine Corks (I used both cork and rubber)
- E6000 Glue
- Large Picture Frame
- Spray Paint
- Decorations for frame, if desired
Directions for the Organized Bulletin Board
Rather than buy a new frame, I found a large frame with an old print at a garage sale for a buck. The frame does not need to be fancy. I spray painted the frame purple because purple is a fun color. In addition, use a large piece of cardboard for the back of the frame and attach the cork using E6000 glue.
Glue the corks on randomly and vary the direction to add interest. Larger corks are added with the top out instead of on their sides just for fun. Add decorations for more whimsy and fun.
My plan is to use my bulletin board to store ideas for the blog including correspondence that needs to be answered immediately. A bulletin board can really keep you organized and it is great to map out a project.
Required Materials for the Boxes
- Wine Corks
- E6000 Glue
- Wood or Cardboard boxes
- Spray or Craft Paint
Directions for the Boxes
In conclusion, the initial cork board is for a friend. I could see her using it for pure aesthetics rather than for practical use. I think it would be very useful to either put an urgent work assignment on it or the steps of a major project.
