Wine Cork Magnets

Hi everyone! I finally figured out what to do with all those left over wine corks, make wine cork magnets! I have been inspired by so many cork creations through pinterest, but I did not start saving my corks until recently so I only had a handful of ones that could actually be used for a creation. Here are some of my favorite cork inspirations.

I LOVE the letters, I think they are so cute! 

Love this wine cork trivet! What a cool gift idea! 

wine cork seating cards, genius! 

 I thought it would be so inexpensive and easy to put some magnets on the corks to make adorable magnets for the fridge. They are also a great way to make an inexpensive hostess gift, most expensive aspect is  all the wine you must consume...but if your like me, you can manage! :) Love some wine!

I bought miniature magnets from Michael's, I got 6 in a pack for $2.78. I bought 2 packs, so that I could put two magnets per cork. I super glued half of them on and hot glued the other half, I wanted to know which glue would hold the magnet better, so when I make these for other people, I can give them the best quality product! So I will keep you updated on which glue holds up the best, anyways...here are my supplies..


They turned out so great, I absolutely LOVE them, and it took me under 20 minutes to make! I can't wait to make these to bring to my next party hostess! So lovely..





Don't you just love them?! Cute and simple! Thanks for reading! :)

  4. So simple but cool.Love those magnets! I made some wine glass charms that were a huge hit. Only problem is now everyone keeps asking me to make them a set which then requires me to drink more wine... ;) Here's my charms: http://www.stylebaggage.com/?p=1734

    The place cards that you have pictured above are exactly what I did at my wedding and I loved the idea. My Hubs and I are definitely wine-fans and have lots of extra corks sitting around so I'll be referring back to all these ideas!

  27. I love the cork card holder idea. How do you cut the cork and how do you get the cork not to ROLL??
