How to Make a Wine Cork Trivet
How to make a wine cork trivet.
Supplies & Tools
31 Wine Corks – all the same height
1 ½ yards of 7/8th inch-wide Ribbon
Hot Glue Gun and Glue
Fine Sand Paper
Sharp Serrated Kitchen Knife
Cut each wine cork in half with the kitchen knife. Try to cut as close to the middle as possible, so each will be the same height.
Sand the rough edges smooth and even out the height.
Arrange the wine corks in your desired pattern.
Flip all of the corks over, then start by gluing the center line together. A thin line of glue along the side is sufficient.
Then glue more corks, one by one, onto that center line until they are all glued together.
Start gluing the ribbon to the outside edge of the trivet. Squeeze a thin line of glue between each cork (one at a time) and then press the ribbon into the crevice using a flat tip screw driver so you don’t burn your fingers. Let the last line of glue cool a bit before gluing the next (so you can pull the ribbon tight).
When you reach the end, trim the ribbon, apply the final line of glue, and press the end into the crevice.
Set your favorite fall dish or casserole on your new trivet and enjoy!
