Cork can be used to make all kinds of everyday objects that we use in our daily life. Ask the Portuguese – they make handbags, shoes, even cork umbrellas. The reason may lie in the fact that around 64% of the world’s cork production is carried out in Portugal. And the Portuguese are very proud of it. In addition, most of this production is used for closing wine bottles. You may have a few traffic jams in your house. Or you don’t have one yet, you’ll have some soon … if you’re anything like me. And why not reuse them instead of putting them in the trash? Using your creativity and our ideas in the photos below this page you can make a nice decoration with corks.
Cork can be very useful in the home and in addition, as you will see, it is also very pretty as a decoration. Natural, but with a sophisticated touch, the decorations made of corks create a warm and jovial atmosphere at the same time. The fact that this type of material is produced from a tree transforms the decoration of your home into a decoration that can be called “eco-friendly”.
Take a clear glass vase to collect the wine cork stoppers and when you have ten or twenty, recycle them by creating pretty decorations like the ones in the gallery below this page. Use them as Lego bricks, as builder parts and with them create whatever shape you want. It doesn’t matter if it’s a giraffe, an elephant, a 3D letter or a photo frame. It all starts with these little pieces of cork. Be inspired by this article and do not hesitate to carry out your DIY projects.
