I have piles and piles of corks. I always meant to make crafts with them. Should I just sell them on ebay? Or make a bunch of wreaths and foist them on friends for presents? smile What would you do?

I still have boxes and boxes of them. My new theory is to weigh them and sell them on ebay in bulk. I am just deluged in these things and the chance of me making 800 wreaths is slim ...

Try something else. I was thinking out the top of a tray. Then I looked at that site, and some of the other ideas are that good or better. The bathmat is also a good idea.

This is a lazy susan with corks as the surface. The price is $140. The frame into which the corks go would cost a little, but you could think of a simple way to make something like this. And it something made from used corks sells for that much, you don't want to throw out the corks.

Unfortunately we've already got plenty of wine-cork trivets and lazy susans and I think our friends are tired of getting them as presents smile. I really do have to just pour the corks into a bag, weigh them, and ebay them.

Then sell them on ebay. Or do it your weight, and just sell them by the pound. Considering the cost of new corks, used ones probably sell for very little.
