Making a cork mat is both stylish and functional, and why not make fun cork letters too?
1 Cut old pallet planks to size and glue or screw them together to form a base to work on.
2 Cut corks in half.
3 Use water resistant wood glue to paste the corks on to the base.
4 Let it dry overnight.
TIP Use cork from different wine bottles to create a bit of interest! Corks courtesy of Amorim Cork South Africa.
