While at High Point Furniture Market, the HGTV.com editors noticed an upcoming trend: cork decor. That got me thinking — maybe I can make something with my old wine bottle corks. I combined my surplus of corks and need for storage to make this cork jewelry board.

 Cork Jewelry Display

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • frame of your choice
  • wine bottle corks
  • hot glue gun and sticks
  • decorative drawer pulls
  • knife

Here’s how you do it:

1. Remove the glass and any cardboard from your frame. Replace the back of the frame.

2. Dry fit your corks before gluing. I chose to do a pattern of two vertical and two horizontal corks. Cut pieces to fit inside the frame.

Any postcard collectors out there like me? All of my friends know that when they travel, they are required to bring me back a postcard (they get extra friend points if they actually mail it — the postmark makes it even more special).

This world traveler cork board from Blue Ribbon General Store is ideal for displaying these little paper mementos.

Now, in the comments below, tell me the postcard-worthy places you and your family have visited this summer.

I hate to date myself, but do you remember the TV show MacGyver? For all you youngsters out there, MacGyver was a secret agent who refused to carry a gun, instead solving problems and escaping trouble by employing whatever materials were handy at the time, along with his trusty roll of duct tape and a Swiss Army knife. (You may also be familiar with the SNL spoof, MacGruber.)

ANYWAY, I fully believe that MacGyver was on to something by making the most of whatever he had on hand. To that end, allow me to present some crafts you can make with all of those leftover wine corks you have kicking around, like this bath mat spotted by our own Lili Zarghami. (If you do not have wine corks handy, refer to the someecard below. But please, drink and craft responsibly.)
