Corky Wednesdays: corky crafts

Each Wednesday I’ve been discussing wine cork decorating ideas. This week I want to help you think outside of the box with these fun cork ideas…

Wine Cork Stamps!

All you need is an oak wine cork, a marker, and a x-acto knife or razor blade.

Here’s a good tutorial on making a wine cork stamp: lil blue boo: Wine Cork Stamps

and here’s another good tutorial: The Sweet Spot: DIY cork stamps!

Corky Creatures!

Corks are also a great material for creating creatures!

Cork & Crochet Space Bug

A little crochet, buttons and corks make these cute guys!

Here’s a great tutorial for making these cork bugs! Camp Sunny Patch Session 4: Cork Bugs

Last year for my daughter’s first book report (on Verdi by Janell Cannon), we drilled, painted and created a green cork snake on a log.

You can find more fun ideas from The Crafty Crow: what you can make from corks, and I will see you next week with some more corky ideas!

Thanks, Bee

Great ideas! They also make great handles for rubber stamps carved out of erasers–I’ve made an alphabet set like this.
