I’ve seen a lot of wine cork crafts, and a lot of coasters, and even a few wine cork coasters.  Even so, these coasters by Mayi at Heartmade really caught my attention.  I love how she trimmed the edges to make them circular, which makes them look very finished.  I think they would also look great if the corks were laid in a more offset fashion to make it look a little more random, but that’s just my preferred design aesthetic.  If you’re not much of a wine drinker, do you have any friends who work at bars or restaurants?  Chances are you have at least one friend who can save them for you!  [how to make wine cork coasters]
