Wine corks don’t seem to be very useful for anything other than wine bottles but they are, in fact, very versatile. We’ve presented numerous projects that show you how you can upcycle wine corks in many interesting ways. This time we’re focusing on a particular type of event: the wedding reception. Who would have thought that wine corks could be used for such a classy and special occasion? Well, if you don’t believe us, just take a look at these amazing creations.
An extremely simple and also useful method of using corks for the wedding reception would be to use one cork for each card that a guest’s name written on it. The cork will serve as a base for the card and will keep it in place. You just have to insert the card in the cork after you’ve made a little mark with a knife.Available on etsy.
