15 Minute Wine Cork Charms

Just another reason to drink more wine…

If you love wine half as much as I do, chances are you’ve got a few wine corks floating around. I love finding new a creative ways to incorporate wine corks into crafts, keychains, jewelry, and pretty much anything else I can think of! I just love the texture of cork, and wine corks usually have fun prints that give projects a vintage vibe. Plus, no matter what I’m doing, I’m reminded that it’s 5 o’clock somewhere, so I should probably pour another glass of wine. Win-win!

This project is super simple, it’s all about the assembly. The process could have been easier if we used a drill to hollow out the cork first, but all in all, it wasn’t too much of a hassle. You might recognize one of the little decorations from our wine cork earring project – this is recycling crafts at it’s best!
