Love my vertical cork board from wine corks
Love it!

Love it!

I had several corks leftover from the wedding ornaments. Found a great way to use them up … a vertical cork board! Cost me sixty-nine cents for the yardstick. I had the corks, ribbon, and hot glue gun. Love pins that use things I already have and not cost me much money! FYI … The yardstick was located in front of the paint dept in my Lowes store.

Lay out a pattern of the corks next to the yardstick where you will be working. (My pattern used 42 corks.)
Take hot glue gun and glue corks to yardstick.
Take a small length of ribbon and nail (small nails) to the back of the yardstick. Hangs perfect.

Took me about fifteen minutes from laying out pattern to completing project.

I will be asking family to save me corks so I can make more of these for gifts and my home!

The pin that I got the idea from is now a blog removed. So I can’t give credit who gave me the inspiration. The ribbon part nailed on the back is my idea. After I made mine I realized there were a couple of pinners who have also made it. They hung theirs differently though.
