Once we’ve finished a bottle of wine, most of us throw away the wine corks without a second thought. But did you know there are so many handy and creative DIY ways you can use wine corks. Some fantastic ideas include a Cork Key Chain, Cork Candles, DIY Cork Stamps, creative vases for flowers and even furniture!

As late as the mid-17th century, French vintners did not use cork stoppers, using oil-soaked rags stuffed into the necks of bottles instead. Natural cork closures are used for about 80% of the 20 billion bottles of wine produced each year. After a decline in use as wine-stoppers due to the increase in the use of cheaper synthetic alternatives, cork wine-stoppers are making a comeback and currently represent approximately 60% of wine-stoppers today.

There are so many unusual and stylish ways you can recycle your popped corks! These DIY Ways You Can Use Wine Corks are some of the most fancy and funnest ways to get creative!
