Between Valentine’s Day, Mardi Gras, and various recent birthday parties, we here at MGR have been *cough* forced *cough* to drink a lot of wine lately, which got us thinking— what can we do with all of these corks lying around? After tossing around a few silly ideas (ex. earplugs? booby traps?), we landed on one simple and easy idea that anyone could easily accomplish! Ladies and Gentlemen, we offer you the Upcycled Coaster!
What you’ll need:
- a cork
- a serrated kitchen knife
- super glue
- some time
For this project we’ll be using a lovely Hardywood cork!
Step 1: Using your serrated kitchen knife, cut the cork into 7 round pieces about 1/2 cm thick.
Step 2: Arrange the cork rounds with one in the middle and six surrounding to make the circular shape of a coaster.
Step 3: One by one, form the circular shape of a coaster by super gluing the cork rounds together. (Note: You may want to do this over something disposable)
Step 4: Allow the newly formed coaster to sit for 20 mins. (or until super glue is dry)
Step 5: Enjoy your new coaster!
