DIY Wine Cork Trivet

Make this fun and easy heart shaped wine cork trivet for Valentine’s Day and use it all year long! I have had a huge container of wine corks sitting around for over a year (someone gave them to me). I knew I wanted to do something with them, but wasn’t 100% sure until I started thinking about Valentine’s Day crafts for moms.

What would be more perfect than making a craft out of wine corks? This whole project took me about 1 hour.

This is what you will need to make the wine cork trivet:

  • 80-90 wine corks (you can buy them for crafting, drinking 90 bottles of wine is NOT required)
  • Hot glue gun + extra glue
  • Cardstock
  • 1 1/2 inch ribbon (I found mine at Joanne’s Fabrics)
  • Marker
  • Scissors

Start by folding your piece of cardstock in half and drawing 1/2 of a heart.

Cut out your heart.

Line up your wine corks along the center line of the heart shape and glue them together using the hot glue gun.

Continue to glue the wine corks together, alternating sides so your heart is even.

Once all of the wine corks are glued together in a heart shape, carefully flip over the wine cork trivet and hot glue the heart-shaped cardstock on to the trivet. This will help keep it together.

Hot glue the ribbon around the outer edge of the wine cork trivet. Do this by adding hot glue lengthwise on every other wine cork.
