These wine cork project ideas were prompted when I took a photo of my overflowing bowl of wine corks that I have been collecting. 

Some of my wine corks have been signed or initialed by friends during our gatherings and I started to think of what kind of sophisticated wine cork crafts  and projects I could find.

The ideas on how to use wine corks are limitless, but here are a few of my favorites.
After staring at my bowl of wine corks that is overflowing,  I started to think about ways to put them to use and started looking for crafts using wine corks.   Will I find the time to do any of the projects???  Possibly not, but if you collect corks yourself, these might be fun projects to try.   

I personally like the wine cork place card holder. and tassel.   Quick, simple, and oh so cute!    Here are some ideas I found on some other sites.

These projects can be done with natural wine corks or synthetic wine corks..
