Create Responsibly

We have moved on from three feet of snow to a week of rain, resulting in people being cooped inside their homes. While sitting inside, you can try creating some of these crafts using corks, pop tabs, or cork holders!

Why not create this cute bistro chair that can be found on This little chair could be used as doll furniture, a cute ornament to hang on a tree, or something that you have sitting on top of your shelf.

For something a little bit practical, you can create a cork board out of corks (Who would of thought!) All you need is a tangerine crate (We have crates here for 25 cents!) and a load of corks. Instructions found on

You can also create a trivet and coasters. Design*Sponge posted this great idea and all you need is wine corks, a sharp utensil for cutting, a needle, and thread. For complete directions: click here.

If you are feeling fashionable, you can grab some pop tabs and create your own jewelry, wallets, or bags. All you need is wire or colorful string to hold the pop tabs together! For inspiration, you can visit and see what other artists have been creating. The example shown to the left is from Crandall's Jewelry and Accessories.
