Random Recast: Corks Day 4

Filed Under: Small Projects, Know-How, Living Spaces

In Random Recast, we find new uses for ordinary things. This week: Corks.

Yes, I know what you're thinking: That's a lot of corks. But would it make you feel any better if I told you that each cork was sliced in half? So really, it takes half the corks you'd think to create this mat. Using real cork will make this mat antibacterial, mildew- and water-resistant. Your local wine bar (or fine restaurant) can often supply you with a bunch of corks, but I've also heard that wineries will ship old corks to you if asked. For the full tutorial to create this bath mat, visit Craftynest.

    Relatives have used old corks for fillers in holes in walls, floors and puttied over them, some used them for fishing hooks to keep in the fishing bait box, and others have used them as hot plates, or instead of foam, clay, they can be used to fill with flowers in small fishbowls, wrap the corks with either colored tape or ribbon then stick in the decorative items in them. Of course, they can be used for snowpersons' eyes, mouths, or noses, all three perhaps? Sure if your creative, you can come up with a multitude of uses for corks. Cut them in half lengthwise, and make a planter, or candy dish, placing a bowl inside them or cupcake dishes.
