- 175+ wine corks
- Hot glue gun (w/hot glue sticks)
- Pocket knife or box cutter knife
- Non-adhesive shelf liner (gripped bottom preferable)
Step One: (optional step)
Steam corks so that they will be easier to cut.
Cut each wine cork in half. Sand any jagged cuts smooth.
Lay wine corks out into a pattern that you prefer. Brick rows, herringbone, etc. This is your project & your choice – Have fun!
Once you have a pattern and shape you like, then lay your non-adhesive paper over your chosen shape and cut the paper to cover your shape.
Lay your newly cut piece of paper and re-lay the cork pattern on top of the paper. Starting with the outside cork pieces, lay out your boarder onto the paper. Then add the inner cork pieces to fill in your design.
One by one, lift each cord half and hot glue it to the paper.
Trim any excess paper off the exterior edges.
… and Voila! You now have a new Bath mat!
