The cork tile I used for yesterday’s Kill Bill sword push pins comes in a pack of two. While I have them out, I thought I may as well craft something else using the second tile. Since crafting my wine cork pens a month ago, I’ve had wine corks on my mind. And today, all I could think about is cork. So I whipped up this super quick and easy cork board project.
Whales are quite a craze these days. I think the whale may have even replaced the owl in popularity. Hard not to love, there’s a certain calm congeniality about the whale. I intended for my wine cork whale to be both functional and decorative, but even so, I found it grim to tack anything on him, although taking tacks is really his purpose.
You can easily whip up your own whale wine cork board, too, with a square foot cork tile, a bunch of wine corks (I used 44), and a hot glue gun. Simply arrange the wine corks in the shape of a whale (or any shape, for that matter) and affix with hot glue, and you’ve got yourself a fun cork board in under fifteen minutes.
