Making a Wine Cork Tray ~ Reusing Wine Corks

Make these quick and easy wine cork trays with synthetic corks.  These types of corks have a flatter end to stand corks upright.

Items needed:
-8 inch or larger in diameter round plant cork tray (Dollar stores are a good place to look)
-E6000 Industrial strength glue
-protected work surface

Simply arrange corks around the edge of the cork tray.  Lift them up one at a time, applying glue to the bottom of the cork and gently press down.  This glue does not dry immediately, so you have time to move and adjust the corks to fit the edge of the try.

Allow to completely dry.

Ideas for use:  vanity or nail polish tray, organize desk items, use for nightstand, fill with items for a gift (bottle of wine and cheese an crackers), and holding so many other items.
