Easy DIY Pincushion Made from Wine Corks

Cork crafts are trendy and inexpensive to make – in this tutorial, Amy shows you how to create an easy DIY pincushion using wine corks.

Cork Crafts: Make an Easy Pincushion

I co-hosted an Etsy Craft Party in my hometown last month and made these fun cork pincushions as part of our table decor. It was such a fun and easy project, I couldn’t resist sharing it with all of you, too! Find out the secret to making this super-quick project in the steps below!


The secret tool here is a hot glue gun–and corks, of course. Mine came already colored, but I’ve seen online that you can dye them in batches using clothing dye.


Pick which cork you want in the middle, and begin gluing the rest of the corks around it–it’ll look like a pretty cork flower when you’re done!


Press the corks together tightly as you add on new ones and let the glue cool. It’s a good idea to set them on a flat surface while you do this, so the bottom of your pincushion will stand evenly (the top might be a bit wonky, but that only makes it cuter).


Once you’re done, just add your pins. This would make a great base for a wire photo holder, too!
