Here is the almost-finished product! I am taking down the champagne corks up top and will continue the pattern to fill that in a little more. So exciting!

I just happened to have this perfect little space in my house but you could do this on a flat wall or inside a frame as well.  I first cut some cardboard to fit the space as a backer.  I decided to use a herringbone pattern instead of just rows or columns of corks.  The real ones are all different sizes and this pattern was more forgiving than others.  I did a border to make it a little neater around the edges.  The corks are just glued on with hot glue!  I have had some come loose but they are a cinch to glue again.  The little triangles of empty space left at the top and bottom were filled in with half pieces.  

Note - you will need to go through your cork collection ahead of time and try to use the ones that most closely resemble each other in length.  For sure.

Oh my. Love that! Hmm ... do I have enough cork? (I don't think so ... that means -- DRINK MORE WINE!)

How'd you make this?
