30 Days of Creativity: Day 11 – Wine Cork Spa Mat
This is the ultimate craft to marry recycling, wine, typography and showers. I’ve been saving my wine corks for a long time, just waiting for the right use to come along. When I came across Craftynest’s great wine cork bath mat, I couldn’t wait to start my own. I’ll admit I’ve been living without a bath mat for the past three years, because I just never found the right one. There are a few reasons the bath mats out there didn’t fit my needs: 1. They slipped all over the floor and didn’t stay put, 2. The ones that do stay put are often those grandma-esque carpet kind, and they’re just not my style, 3. I have a very small space in which to use a mat, so a custom size was in order.
All you need for this project are the following items:
- wine corks (I used about 100 and my mat measures 21″x14″)
- hot glue
- grip liner without holes (the type used to line drawers and cupboards)
- cutting mat or cutting board
