Crafty Creations: Wine Cork Bulletin Board

Crafty Creations: Wine Cork Bulletin Board

Today I’ll be showing you how to make a sweet pin-board for your space using old wine corks. This DIY is the perfect project for those of you who are just moving into your first apartment or settling into a desk at your first job. It’s a fun and unexpected way to display little notes, reminders, photographs or recipes while recycling discarded corks. Watch the video below to check out this latest project from my Crafty Creations series:

To recap, here’s what you will need:

  • wine corks
  • scissors
  • glue gun
  • thumb tacks
  • ribbon

What do you think about this DIY? I really loved how mine turned out. It kind of reminded me of those wine cork coasters I made last December for my DIY Gift Guide

Let me know if you’re going to give today’s craft a try in the comments below.

Happy crafting!

XO Lauren

    I love it! Definitely going to try it:) I totally love all these vids, you’ve got some great ideas! I’m currently saving beer bottle caps, I’ve got a tone of them over the past year or so… I’m wondering if you’ve got any good ideas for what to do with them?! Some sort of cute decoration or something?! Just a suggestion!:) I’d love your input:)

  • Laura Duijvestijn

    Love it!!! Wrote down all the essentials to make my own this weekend!!!

    LOVE LOVE LOVE!! Can’t wait to make it.

    you know what I love about your crafty creations is that you can easily do these things at kids’ parties! So much fun and cheaper that those expensive trips people go on these days to please their kids. My mum used to do crafty things when I was younger at my birthday parties and it was so much fun! Kids can show what they’ve made at home and be really proud of it!

    Keep up the good work! I save all your tips and tricks so I can use it when I have kids one day :)

  • Ashten Fleck

    This is super cute! Does anyone know what color she is wearing on her nails?

  • Ox Ritz

    Super Cute! I had a ton of wine corks after my wedding and I was making a big cork frame board when my son stepped on the glass and broke it :( I had to throw away all of the corks from the project…. Well, good thing my Hubbs and I love wine!

    great DIY! I love this idea, it’s so cute. I love wine, but I usually write a date and event on most of my corks and store them in a bowl like a displayable wine journal, but for the non-event corks I just leave them blank, hopefully i’ll have enough soon to try this.

  • baylie crank

  • Linh Ly

    Love this diy…..I noticed you deleted the video to the bookshelf box, it was one of my favorites, despite all the rude comments from people..i found it very crafty and useful…i bought old used books from goodwill and made my own box..i actually made the entire box with books, lol..I kept the front and back on two of my books and made them the sides, then I used a painting canvas for the bottom and the back and also for what the books are actually glued one…heres the link :)

  • Megan Babin

    I just wanted to add that not all the books on my “”bookshelf box”" were used…the lauren conrad book was one I had bought two of and tried to make a jewelry box with, it didn’t work out..but it looks great on this :) and for all those people complaining about this diy..I am actually saving the paper from the books and using it to cover a coffee table :) a diy i seen on mrkate.com

  • Anne Altstaetter

    I love this!! Its pretty stinkin adorable!! now i finally have something to use those for that is cute and functional. and can also help me remember things i may have forgotten after i drink more wine haha

  • Sarah DelBiondo

    I really Love this!! even though i don’t drink wine (only because i can’t find any that i like, any suggestions please message me!) i’ve asked all my wino’s to send me their corks!

  • Lulu_xo

    love this idea, even recreated it myself! :) http://laurenconrad.com/user/photo/3479157

  • sunsets829

    This is a really great idea! Looking forward to creating different shapes for my rooms.
    On a side note: Lauren, you look so professional with the glue gun. Do you still burn yourself accidentally? I still do no matter how careful I am with it. Just curious. :)
