C r a f t B r e a k : W i n e C o r k C o a s t e r s

Here is a simple DIY for all you wine lovers (myself included). Put all those corks to good use by turning them into coasters or trivets! Start by cutting your corks in half so they are not as tall (I found that a sharp kitchen knife did the job quite nicely) and then begin placing them into a pipe clamp (available at hardware stores). Use smaller pipe clamps for coasters and larger ones if your making a trivet for a pot or pan. When you have them situated the way you like, use a screwdriver to tighten the clamp and hold the corks in place - no glue necessary!
Finally, go pour yourself a glass of wine and test out your new coasters!
