Repurpose Wine Corks Into Drawer Pulls

Dollar Store Crafts

Saving corks from your wine bottles makes a lot of sense. There are so many ways to put them to use. This simple idea is just another one to add to that long list! This is one of the easiest how-to tutorials you'll see all year and it could be just what the doctor ordered for that ho-hum piece of furniture sitting in the corner.

Dollar Store Crafts shows you how to replace old lack-luster drawer pulls with something a bit funkier. The idea is simple: unscrew the original and twist the cork onto a screw threaded through the hole in the drawer front.

You could even try dyeing the corks or buffing them with paint before attaching them, or possibly gluing three side by side and making a larger pull instead of a knob. The method of attachment would be the same, it would just be a little larger.
