20 Wine Inspired Projects


I love wine…maybe a little too much.  Not like that…stop judging!

I am a white wine kind of girl and my husband enjoys red wine, but what I love the most, is making things out of my leftover wine corks and wine bottles.

What wines do you love?  Italian wines, Australian wines, California wines?

I have been saving wine corks and bottles for years in anticipation of maybe doing something with them one day.  I even have a few friends from local restaurants saving their corks for me.  I have many plans for them.  I think my husband is afraid I am going to start covering the walls with them.

Wait…now that may be pretty cool…maybe a wine cork backsplash???

Today, I want to share some of my wine inspired projects and some of my favorite wine related projects from around the web…

    YAY!!!!! We’re both doing round-ups today!!! High five, sista! However, I must say, I heart yours a lot because of the fact that you have TWENTY things made from wine stuff. I kinda think we should be bffs. Oh, and also, there are about 20 projects up there that I want to recreate! Pinning this NOW! xo

    Perfect cork window idea. I’m currently redoing my office – didn’t think about replacing the ugly bulletin board until now. I have the perfect salvaged basement window to use. Lord knows I have plenty of corks – especially since I make my own wine. Free fruit is my friend.

    There are some really great ideas in this roundup! Thanks so much for sharing!

    Being an Aussie, I’m biased when I say Australian wines. I love Brown Brothers wines, especially their Cienna and Moscato. If you can get your hands on the Cienna give it a go it will become a favourite

    A great collection of really good ideas! I love cabernet sauvignon and fume’ blanc (mostly in the summer). I made a bunch of very cool key chains using a tutorial from Artsy Vava.

    I pinned this post because I somehow end up with many empty wine bottles and corks. I’m not sure HOW that happens but it does :)

  11. says

    I have been wondering what to do with all the wine corks I’ve saved. Now I have something to do with them! I’m going to be looking for and old window…Great ideas!

  12. Cynthia says

    Wow! Great ideas for the corks and bottles. I’ve been saving them for years now, and keep kidding my husband that we have enough to make that boat I’d love to have – LOL! But really, I think the chalkboard with the cork surround is fabulous. Also fabulous is that wine box box. We’re red wine lovers and have actually dedicated an area of our home to storing our wine collection, so we’re moderately serious. In fact, it’s my dream to open a wine shop someday. Gosh, but I love all of these ideas you’ve found. Cheers!
