We toss our corks in a large cylindrical glass container above the fridge in our kitchen and we think it adds a nice touch of decor. As the container gets fuller and fuller, we like to brainstorm different larger scale projects we could re-purpose all the corks into one day.
While our little collection continues to grow and we continue to dream up bigger ideas, I came up with a couple smaller cork projects for around our house that you could tackle in minutes with the right supplies on hand. We put some of our wine corks to good use in the form of magnets and garden markers and I thought it would be fun to share how they turned out here on the blog. They'd be perfect for a weekend project and you can find the full tutorials for both in my guest blogging series for Lot18.

Project #2: Wine Cork Magnets
For this project, we sifted through the cork collection and pulled out more of the ornate or somewhat meaningful corks as a way to preserve and use them on a daily basis. Paired with tiny neodymium magnet backings, these little magnets pack a super strong hold and have quickly become some of our favorites on the fridge!

Do you also have a growing collection of wine corks? Do any of them have special meaning or do you just like to keep them around like us? Re-purposed them into anything interesting?
