If you’ve ever wondered what to do with all of your leftover corks, look no further than DIY Wine Corks : Thirty-five+ Cute and Clever Cork Crafts by Melissa Averinos. Averinos starts out by explaining what cork is, where it comes from and the different types of corks. Wine profiles are interspersed throughout. The crafts seem to be mostly beginner-level, and range from “entertaining accents” to jewelry to toys. Many of them would make great host/hostess gifts, such as the chalkboard menu and cheese spreaders. Wine lovers and crafty people will love this book. Pretty soon you’ll be choosing wine by the design on the cork rather than the vintage! Please let us know if you’ve made anything!
