DIY: Wine Cork Bath Mats


Are you ready to get crafty again Pioneers? That’s right, we’re getting our hands dirty (and a little burned with the extensive use of glue gun in this DIY activity) again this week and creating some custom-made Wine Cork Bath Mats. Not only do these bad boys make for some awesome bathroom decor but will finally allow you to get some use out of all those wine corks you’ve been saving for no good reason whatsoever. So treat yourself to a glass of your favorite Lost Republic brown water and let’s get crafty.

  1. Cut each cork in half lengthwise with a pocket knife and sand any edges flat if your cuts are jagged
  2. Arrange the corks into a rectangle, flat side down creating a 18.5 x 30 in. mat (or 10 x 35 cork halves)
  3. Measure and cut the shelf liner using your ruler, scissors, and cutting board
  4. Working your way outside in, carefully transfer the rows and columns of your cork rectangle onto the top side of the liner
  5. Remove one cork at a time and glue those puppies down!

And voila! You now have a brand new, extremely unique bath mat composed of 175 corks that contain 175 memories (or lack of memories for some) that you can stand on confidently every time you brush your teeth or take a shower in the morning. After all, who says that drinking needs to stay in the kitchen?

Happy Crafting Pioneers! Lost Republic and crafting go hand in hand. We’re not judging. rns you will inevitably receive.
