For some reason I just never could bring myself to throw away the corks from my empty wine bottles…I just kept tossing them into a glass jar in my dining room not know what I would ever use them for. As much fun (and slightly alarming…) as it was watching them build up, I decided it was time to put some of them to good use! So I hit up the web and came across this wine cork bath mat. Eureka! I had to have one. I love the look of bamboo and cork mats so what could be better than up-cycling wine corks to make my own!? Here it is, my The Wine Cork Bath Mat.

- Approx. 100-150 corks (ask friends, collect, or purchase on good ole’ Amazon.
- One anti-slip rug pad
- Hot Glue Gun
- Hot glue
- Utility knife
Using the utility knife, start cutting the corks in half. Be sure to do this over a piece of scrap wood and BE CAREFUL, the corks can get slippery!
Be patient…this takes some time. All this wine talk made me thirsty 😉
Trim off any excess rug pad once all of the corks have been glued.
