Recycling corks into decorative objects
Turning corks into a bulletin or photo board
A decorative object that will have its effect in any room of the house: in a bedroom to pin photos, in the kitchen to leave out the shopping and to-do lists, in an office to replace a magnetic board, or in a bathroom without necessarily pinning anything on it... It's very simple to make, as long as you have enough corks available. This implies drinking or tasting a lot of wine and therefore opening a lot of bottles ... If, however, you don't have enough corks, do not hesitate to ask winemakers or wine merchants, who often keep them for then give to associations whose goal is to recycle them.
Do not hesitate to share your creations with us, by posting your photos on the Facebook page of Rendez-Vous dans les Vignes! We will be delighted to see them.
Corks in a flower pot
No time to start creating your own decorative objects? Instead of throwing corks away after your wine tastings, you can use them as they are in your flower pots or at the base of a plant to hide the soil and keep the moisture. Just make sure they don't get moldy, which may happen if they get wet too often, or if the jar is placed in a damp or poorly ventilated room.
