Put a Cork in It! – Part Eight : Great Wall of Wine

by Nannette Eaton on July 19, 2010

 

Wine Harlots drink a lot of wine, and have a dilemma.  Not about the wine consumption, but what to do with all the cork closures.  Join us while we find uses for the leftover corks.

This has to be the most ambitious wine cork craft project. Covering your walls with wine corks. Not for the faint of heart, for sure. Just splitting all the corks in half is a time consuming project, plus needing to affixing luan to the sheetrock and the applying the corks with wood glue is like Martha Stewart on steroids. That said, I’m obsessed with this one. I want! I want! Check out the cork wine wall at Frankly Wine profiled by Dr. Vino, they are affixed on the short end, instead of on the side, as pictured above. Tremendously cool.  The wall is covered 15,000 corks, so I have to go now, I’ve got a LOT of drinking to do!
