Try This Fun DIY Project to Turn Wine Corks Into Coasters

For wine enthusiasts, accumulating a collection of corks comes with the territory. Instead of tossing them out, why not turn those leftover wine corks into stylish, eco-friendly coasters? This fun DIY project is not only a great way to recycle, but it also adds a personalized touch to your home décor. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to create your own unique coasters using wine corks.

What You’ll Need:

  • Wine corks (about 8 per coaster)
  • Sharp knife or a cutting board and a very sharp blade
  • Hot glue gun with glue sticks
  • Sandpaper (optional)
  • Ribbon or twine for decoration (optional)


  1. Start by collecting several corks of similar size for uniformity. If the corks vary in length, trim them to the same height using a sharp knife, taking care to avoid accidents. 
  2. Next, slice each cork in half lengthwise. Arrange these halves on a flat surface in your desired shape, either square or circular, mixing stained and natural sides for a varied look. 
  3. Glue the corks side by side with a hot glue gun, ensuring each piece is securely attached. 
  4. Optionally, for a smoother edge, gently sand the coaster. Add a decorative touch by wrapping ribbon or twine around the coaster’s edge and securing it with glue.
