DIY Gift Guide: Cute Cork Coasters



How many of you save the cork after finishing a bottle of wine? If you do, you’re in luck because today’s DIY Gift Guide craft is just the project for you: Cork Coasters! They make for excellent presents for all the winos in your life. Or, tie them onto a nice bottle of wine for a simple yet thoughtful host gift. Below are instructions on how to make cork coasters.

Makes 2 coasters


Here’s what you will need…

  • 16 corks (Make sure they are all equal in size as some corks are a tiny bit bigger than others.)
  • hot glue gun + clear glue


  1. Lay out all of your corks and group together similar size corks for each coaster.
  2. Using a hot glue gun, glue together eight corks in pairs of two. Make sure to apply glue in thin linear strips to avoid excess glue running over the sides.
  3. Once the glue has dried, lay out paired corks in alternating pattern as shown in photo #3. Then glue paired corks together.
  4. Allow glue to dry for one minute and voila, you have yourself an adorable little coaster.

Are you going to give this DIY a try?

    Cute DIY! My mother in law has a couple wine cork corkboards — there are so many cool projects you can do with them. These coasters would look perfect on our bar cart! Looks like I need to start drinking more wine, hahha!

    I love this idea! Especially for the people in my life that enjoy wine! Very cute and creative idea! Thank you!!

  • Tiffani Stuart

    I always keep them, but end up throwing them away, b/c I don’t know what to do w/them!! These are great! I’m always looking for more coasters, since a bunch of mine end up w/earrings in them after a hard day, lol. Love this idea!!

  • Tiffani Stuart

    PS, I’m concerned as to what kind of cups/glasses can sit on these? It seams to me that you wouldn’t want to put a flute or something too “”vertical”” on this, since the surface is bumpy… Is this true? Or can you put any kind of cup/glass on this?

  • Rebecca Kelsey Sampson

    OMG!!! That is so awesome!!! It sooo kills to birds with one stone! I have been saving my corks for a while, knowing they could be useful, but didn’t know for what. AND my bf and I have been looking for costers that are nice, but cheap, and this is a look that would work for us! Not too girly, not too manish! Can’t wait to make!!!!

  • Kimmy S
