Wine Cork Knives

Although I am not a wine drinker, I have enjoyed exploring all the reuses for those crafty little corks. They really feature cool text and logos, so it seems like such a shame to throw them away! Val at Yarni Gras found a way to use her wine corks to refab some old canapé knives she had kicking around.

Val removed the old handles with a mallet and then simply stuck the remaining tips into slits cut into the corks. That’s it! The cork closes around itself, making for a nice snug fit. Val even has you covered with a cheese ball recipe so you can start using your new again knives right away!

  1. Great solution! I just happen to have a knife that is falling apart, and a wine cork to bring it back to life. My son will be so happy I didn’t have to throw his favorite cheese spreader in the trash.
