Kids have summer camp crafts. You... you have "winter up-cycling projects." You still get your hands a little dirty with glue and paint, but the end product is something more sophisticated, in style and in function. In other words, these are wine cork projects you'll have fun making, then want to keep around afterwards.

Click through to each of the sources below for instructions on how to make each one. You'll need to provide your own corks, though. Shouldn't be a problem considering what a brutal winter it's been, but just in case, here's an Amazon Prime-eligible listing for 100+ real wine corks for $15.
