I made this monogram cork board for my mom after finding the idea on pinterest. I collected wine corks and got several people to help collect corks for me as well. All I had to buy was the frame and the gorilla glue. If you’re looking for another way to use your collection of corks check out my Vertical Cork Board or Cassie’s Wine Cork Birdhouse There’s also our my pinterest board for other ideas Wine Cork Crafts
- Wine Corks
- Frame 12″x 30″
- Glue (I used Gorilla)
In order to make the ‘S’ I cut 15 corks in half so that I would have an even amount of red tips and plain tips to make an ‘S’ that would stand out. I actually ended up using all of the halves but one to keep it symmetrical. I created an ‘S’ in the shape I loved and immediately glued that down in the center of the frame.
Once I glued the ‘S’ down I began fitting in the corks on their sides like a puzzle. I did not cut these corks because a cork on its side was nearly the same size as the half-sized corks and it kept the whole thing pretty level. Each time I finished a row I went ahead and glued right away.
I realized that even though I had an overwhelming amount of corks I needed even more to finish the project. If you’re wanting to do this project with this size frame make sure you have at least 130 corks just in case you make a mistake.
I used the monogram for my mom’s first name, but you can use your last name too!!
