Hi everyone! This is Lindi, visiting again from Love Create Celebrate. I admit it, I’m a hoarder. Aren’t all DIYers? I have trouble throwing anything away that could be “useful” one day (wine corks included!) When I was trying to plan out some DIY projects for my Master Bedroom Closet Renovation, I saw the old corks in a mason jar on my counter and was immediately struck with inspiration. Maybe my DIY Jewelry Holder will inspire you to keep your corks too!
I finished this entire project in just a few minutes! It’s amazing what you can do with a few old corks!

Grab your pliers and eye hooks. Use the pliers to open up some of the eye hooks so that you can hang jewelry on them. Use one set of pliers to hold the eye hook in place. This is much easier than trying to stabilize the hook with your hand.
Using the needle-nose pliers, pull the eye hook open. You only need an opening of approximately 1/4″.
Grab your drill and drill a hole into the center of the corks (as shown below). You can just eyeball it because it doesn’t have to be perfect. Two of your corks should only be drilled half way through (they will be the corks on either end of the jewelry holder.)
Once your holes are drilled, you can put the eye hooks in place. Twist an open eye hook into each cork. For the end corks, twist two closed eye hooks into the top of the corks.
Line up the corks side by side and measure their total width. Measure the length of dowel you need and use a saw to cut the dowel to the correct length. Slide the corks onto the dowel rod. Cap the dowel off with the two end corks.
Tie a piece of rope into the closed eye hooks for hanging your jewelry holder.
Wouldn’t this make a great gift? Sometimes our family has a DIY gift exchange at Christmas time. I just might have to make a second one to throw in for some family members that would love it!
