Rather than tossing them, I decide to see if there was any good uses for corks. It turns out, corks are far more useful than most of us think.
Corks can be repurposed to create new ideas that would be perfect all around the home!
Cork Trivet
Don’t place hot pots or plates on your counter or wooden furniture – it can leave ugly burn marks. Instead, create a nice trivet out of your old corks. Zip tie a bunch of corks together in a circular shape. Use hot glue to secure them. When the glue dries, you can use it as a trivet!
