We have seen many DIY projects featuring uses for corks, but often times the overall effect is rather shabby chic or country kitchen. While that may suit some decors, it's nice to see a more pared down version that with clean lines and simple shape, that would fit in with a more minimalist look. This DIY cork trivet from Sweet Paul is simple, easy and would fit in on most tables.
From the blog:
All you need is a bunch of wine corks and superglue. If you don't have 60 wine corks lying around the house, you can ask your local wine shop, restaurants, bars, etc. I got mine from my local wine shop — they gave me 100 corks. Start by gluing 3 corks together. You have to use superglue and not a hot glue gun. Continue to glue corks to each other until you have a circular shape. It needs to be big enough to rest a pot on top. Once it's, dry, it's ready to use.
