How To Make Hanging Terrariums


  1. How about wine cork corn-on-the-cob holders? Much like the cheese spreaders, but with two prongs. Use stainless steel finishing nails with the heads cut off, or straight stiff stainless wire sharpened a little on one end, and epoxy into tight fitting holes drilled in the cork. Or, use bamboo skewers glued in with wood glue for a greener, even safer method.

    If your saucepan lid has the right kind of handle (flattened u-shaped, hoop, etc, not solid) a couple or three corks that fit tightly in it make a nice cool-touch handle. We have one that has lasted years, even with the dishwasher.

  2. Hi! Great tutorials & ideas. I wanted to know where I could get so many corks other than buying them. For me to save up enough for a bath mat would take a very long time. Any suggestions? Thanks, Marie

    • I make friends with bartenders at local restaurants. They are nice enough to save corks from wine bottles for me, and I go by and pick them up maybe twice a month. Naturally, I order a drink or two and remember to tip them good. They don’t forget me. In the past I have sold them on eBay for a profit.

    • I ordered a box off of ebay of 200 corks…with s&h only paid around $30.00 for the entire thing. I have made 2 wreaths, 3 trivets, ceiling fan pulls and still have tons left! I’d try ebay or Amazon also.

  3. I did a split cork backsplash behind the stove and under the cabinet. Turned out great> Picture is in pinterest under my name. I work for a Central Coast Winery (Talley Vineyards) so I have a great supply chain for new unused corks. I have also done cork trivets for great Christmas presents.

    • Hi Terry
      I recently painted my kitchen walls and on the main wall I outlined a big square a different color. I want to outline the square with corks. My thing is I want to be able to remove them later if I wish. I tried tacky stuff figuring it wouldn’t be a permanent stick. I only used one circle per cork so that may be why they fell off the wall ha.. but I wanted to know what you used for behind your stove please so I can finish my wall. did you use permanent glue? can you please tell me what I can use but also will let me remove the corks? thank you much Terri
