Show Off Your Christmas Cards With this DIY Cork Display

With the holidays only a few days away, you may have a stack of lovely Christmas cards on your coffee table. Or maybe they are taped to your wall?

Create something better to enjoy those holiday cards – using wine corks you have collected throughout the year.

And when the holiday trimmings come down, this project can be repurposed as a memo station for notes and photos throughout the year.

Start with a piece of stained trim and 11 corks. This is the perfect way to use up scrap pieces of wood you have in the garage.

Glue each cork to the piece of trim, leaving space in between.

After the glue dries, add a ribbon to the top and hang on the wall.

Each cork makes the perfect spot to pin a card (or photograph).
