Wine Cork Jewelry Display

by Ann Ross
(Fairview Park, OH)

This wine cork jewelry display is a creative way to use up those extra wine corks... and so useful too! These also work great as jewelry displays as craft shows. Just several frames and you can make very inexpensive jewelry displays.

To make this jewelry holder, you will need:

- A tabletop frame (any size that works for your needs)

- Fabric (to cover the background)

- Wine bottle corks (as many as you would like)

- Craft knife

- Glue

Follow these steps:

1. Remove the glass from the frame.

2. Cut some fabric of your choice to the size of the frame and use adhesive spray to attach it to the board that the stand is attached to.

3. Put the frame back together without the glass.

4. Use full sized corks, or cut corks in half with craft knife. FYI, synthetic corks are much easier to cut than natural cork.

5. Arrange the corks in the configuration you desire and glue in place.

As you can see from the picture, I have space for necklaces, bracelets, and various types of earrings. BE CAREFUL cutting the corks-especially the natural kind. If the cork was uneven or bumpy on the bottom, I used some sandpaper to make if flatter.

Creative Way to Use Wine Corks!
by: Crafts For All Seasons

Thank you Ann Marie for this great idea! I'm always looking for new ways to use wine corks. I like how you can actually can push the post earrings into the corks to hold those, so there is a place for all types of jewelry. Thanks for sharing!

Love the idea as I have a lot of various shaped corks. Are there any "special" glues to use that would hold the best??

Response from Crafts For All Seasons: Hi Diz, hopefully you will here back from Ann Marie on what she actually used, but in case not I wanted to add my two cents. I really like the glue brand E-6000, which comes in a squeezable tube. It is really strong! Of course, a two part Epoxy would work great too, one of the strongest around.

I agree with the E-6000 glue. It's pretty smelly but is the most dependable. I still use this every day. I'm thinking of updating it by adding more corks (I have plenty!!).

I'm thinking of doing this but I think I'd like to make it sturdier. My thought it to use a thin piece of leftover paneling or luan or some type of thin board, and cut to the size of the frame. Then glue on choice of fabric, screw flat top 1 inch screws through from the back of the board, then screw/twist the corks onto the front.
