Recycle all those wine corks we know you have laying around with this super fun monogram cork board. All you’ll need is a glue gun and a few other materials to recreate this fun ‘M’ (or any other letter you’d like). And you can customize it with any color scheme. So let’s get started!
Here’s what you’ll need for your cork monogram:
- Corks (I used 115)
- Hot glue gun with lots of extra glue
- Acrylic craft paint
- Letter printout
Begin by printing out your letter. I chose ‘M’ and printed it out large so that it filled two 8.5×11 inch pages. Simply choose your favorite font (this is Baskerville Semibold) and keep increasing it to your desired size. Print the pages out and then tape them together.
Begin in the bottom corner, gluing together corks following the lines of the letter. To make sure you get a secure connection, put a line of glue down the side of the cork and wiggle it back and forth a bit when you attach it to the other cork. If a cork touches multiple other corks, put glue at every connection point.
Continue this process until the entire letter has been completed. Corks can be different lengths, so if you’re a perfectionist you may want to choose corks of the same length to get a more uniform look.
