Wine cork bath mat by Craftynest

How to make a wine cork bath mat

This is so cool. I made a trivet out of wine corks once (see humbling photo below) but I clearly wasn't thinking as big as the savants at Craftynest. Click on the above photo of the bath mat and you'll get the full instructions.  These people are CLEVER, I tell you.

Clever.. so totally genius man... this article!!


Wah! I just threw out my collection of wine corks, thinking "After all these years, obviously I'm never going to do anything with these." Darn!


The cork trivet assembled with copper wire is genius! Love it. You could probably do an entire bath mat the same way. I may try it myself. Brava.
