PALAZZETTI MAGAZINE

White with grilled fish, red with a delicious grilled meat, bubbles to welcome your friends with a toast around the barbecue: if you like wine, during the summer, you’ll definitely collect a lot of corks.

Did you know that they can be reused for really interesting (and useful) DIY projects?

Recycling is a fundamental feature in a circular economy: giving new life to objects allows us to respect the planet and be more eco-friendly, in full Palazzetti style!

We have selected 6 tutorials for perfect summer themed projects which you can have a go at during the summer holidays!

Mobile phone holder

Arm yourself with patience and all-purpose glue for this project. The cork mobile phone holder is really useful when you want to listen to music or watch a video but your hands are otherwise occupied (for example while you are cooking!).

“Sailor” place labels

Do your guests sometimes get confused about where to sit? Surprise them at your next barbecue with homemade place labels in the shape of a small boats!

For the base you will need glue, toothpicks and elastic bands; for the top you will also need some fabric offcuts, needle and thread!

Ladle holders

What better place than the kitchen to show off your love of wine? Reuse corks to create a homemade ladle jar: the inside is actually a simple tin (for example one that contained ready cooked beans or tomatoes): so actually the whole thing is recycled.

Vasetti decorativi

If you think you recognise the band that keeps the corks in place, then you probably do: it is simply a roller shutter belt, cut down to size. A little glue and voilà: your homemade coaster is ready!
