Wine cork crafts are a fun way to upcycle with a really unique and versatile crafting item. We are the biggest fans of wine cork crafts in our house and love nothing more than making little pocket dolls and characters for storytelling and play. We have a big selection of wine cork crafts that are great for kids of all ages…and adults too!

Best Wine Cork Crafts

Wine cork crafts are a great way to recycle corks, of really any kind, but they make such cute crafts! Wine corks make fun crafts from animals, to puppets, dolls and more!  

Need Wine Corks for Crafting?

We visit our local Italian restaurant and they willingly fill a bag full of their champagne and wine corks whenever our stash is running low. I have also found (affiliate link) recycled wine corks on Amazon…yep, they have everything!
