I work as a server at a restaurant here in Miami (we were in Food and Wine Mag this month - yay!) and one of the perks is all the wine corks you can collect.  I decided a few weeks ago that I needed to do something with some of my stash for the blank wall in the dining room...so cork board it was.  I laid this out with three patterns before settling on this one (of course the most difficult).  The frame is covered in wine labels that I glued on with tacky glue then mod podged to finish. I really like it...I almost don't want to put anything on it.  I have some plans for some more wine cork art for the other wall as well Smiley

This is great. I made one 25 years ago, and it still looks good and is holding up well. I just use it as a decoration, not as a "cork board", though. I hated to think all the corks were going in the trash.

Such a good idea! I'm a server in NYC and I always save the corks of the obscenely expensive wine we serve (I don't know about anyone else, but a few hundred dollars for a bottle of wine is a little bit out of my just-graduated-from-college-and-can't-find-the-job-I-want-in-this-damn-recession budget.) LOVE this idea! Grin

yeah...as I was putting it together we were joking about some of the wine represented on there...there are at least 4 Opus corks and a few other pretty highly allocated cabs and pinots as well.  Nothing that I can afford to drink but its fun to see on the board Smiley

awesome, It is great that you have access to so many wine corks.  I am working on a wine cork wreath and have been collecting corks for over a year!

How did you attach the corks to the board so they stay stuck? Hot glue seems like it would eventually peel off.
