Wine cork napkin holder

I have this really horrendous habit of starting posts and not finishing them. And I'm considering making myself finish all my draft posts before starting any more new ones.  But I have so many cool projects I've recently done and am itching to write about, that I'm not sure I have the discipline to do that!

So anyway, I made this wine cork napkin holder about a forever and a half ago, and I'm just now getting around to posting.  Better late than never, right?  As you may know, I save every.single. wine cork that gets used in my house.  And we apparently go through a lot of wine, so that means a lot of cork crafts!

This one is pretty straightforward: build the base first with wood glue, making sure it's a bit bigger than the napkins you have, and let it dry.  Then build up the "walls" on 3 sides.

After everything is dry, stand back and admire as you allow your napkin holder to perform its intended function!

For another cool cork craft and the wood glue I like use for corks, check out my tutorial on how to make a wine cork trivet.

And to close: We got a new doggy bed that we were worried was too small for both the dogs to use, but they pulled through and managed to snuggle up together in it! :)  My excuse this time - this random story is related to the napkin holder because the bed is shaped kiiiinda like the the napkin holder - am I right!!?


  1. Aww pretty! I see that lots of wine and champ is being had :)
    Hope you are doing well!

    1. Thanks, hope you're well too!
      Haha, I'm only slightly embarrassed by how many corks I've collected...
