Easy DIY Wine Cork Projects

by | Apr 19, 2018 | Easy DIY | 0 comments

We’ve all set down our glass of wine at a party and had to make a quick “is this mine?” decision. With these little charmers, you never have to wonder again. They are so easy to make you can give them as gifts and keep some for yourself! I found everything needed to make these at my local craft store. Let’s start with a list of materials for a DIY Wine Cork!

Materials

The list of materials is pretty short and the only thing I needed to buy were the stemware hooks. If you don’t have any of the items below, a trip to the hardware store should get you sorted out.

  • Screw Eyes
  • 25mm Stemware Hooks
  • 5cm Cork Discs (or wine cork)
  • Adhesive Vinyl Stencil
  • Makeup Sponge or Foam Brush
  • Acrylic Paint
  • Exacto Knife or Pick Tool

Attach Screw Eye to Cork Disc

If you didn’t buy cork discs, you can take a used wine cork and slice in into discs with a sharp knife. For this DIY project, we cut them approximately 5 cm wide.

Cork is soft enough that you can use your fingers to screw the hook into the cork disc. If you have any difficulty, using a pointed object to make an indentation into the cork edge can help.

Attach the Stemware Hook to the Screw Eye

This is probably the easiest step of this project. Simply take one of your stemware hooks and put one end through the eye of the screw eye.

Apply Vinyl Stencil

If you have access to a vinyl cutter such as a Cricket or Silhouette, you can create any design you’d like with your cutter. For those who don’t have a vinyl cutter, you can always free-hand your design on the cork with paint. If you don’t have the paint colors you want readily available, nail polish is a great alternative in a pinch!

If you’re going the vinyl route, most general-use indoor vinyl will work for this project. Once you make and cut your design, don’t forget to weed out the design and not the background so you’re left painting the correct part!

Paint your Design on the Cork

We found acrylic paint to work great for this project. Pick a color, apply some paint, and voila! With an imperfect surface like the face of a cork disc, I always like to paint in multiple, light coats of paint to avoid paint from bleeding under my stencil.

Remove Stencil

There’s no need to wait and let the paint dry in this case. Go ahead and peel off your stencil to reveal your painted wine charm. For small bits of vinyl, a hook tool/pick tool is mighty helpful, but in a pinch, an Exacto knife or other pointed object will work to grab any small pieces.
