One of the most popular crafts to make out of used corks are trivets. For weeks now I’ve been resistant as these are already everywhere online. But then I remembered the lonely picture frame sitting in my dresser. One of the cats knocked it over and broke the glass out of it about a year ago. For some reason, I held on to it! I knew that it would be good for something someday and after browsing online for some corkspiration (should I trademark that, or what!? haha) I noticed that many of the trivets use old picture frames as a base.
I thought, why not?
It only took five corks sliced roughly in half and a little hot glue. It was a tad time consuming finding the right sized and marked corks and getting them all to fit perfectly into the small frame.
Here’s the finished product. Not a bad little trivet, if I don’t say so myself. I left the picture frame stand on the back in tact just in case a future buyer would like to use it as a funky little art display instead. ;)

In other news, I may have found an old window picture frame! Keep your fingers crossed for me readers – that’s one project that I would just love to take on! I know you will anyway – you’ve got to be sick of all the corks and pallets by now! I need some fresh material to play with!
