Step 1: Cut the corks Cut each of the corks crosswise to create five to six one-quarter-inch-thick discs. Step 2: Lay out pattern Lay out six discs in a hexagonal pattern, with two discs next to each other at the top, one on either side, and two at the bottom. Step 3: Glue Place a few dabs of glue on the edges of the discs where they touch and glue all six discs together over an old newspaper. Let the glue dry for 15 to 30 minutes. Tip You can also sew the discs together with a needle and thread using two small stitches. Step 4: Create another hexagon Create an adjoining hexagon by gluing together another six discs in the same fashion, then gluing it to the first hexagon. Step 5: Add another hexagon Add a third hexagon in the same manner as the second. Tip Play with other geometric shapes for your coasters, making sure you include negative space. They don't all have to match. Step 6: Turn over and glue Turn over the coaster and apply a layer of craft glue to the entire underside to add stability. Did You Know? Did you know? Not all wine corks are created equally -- there are different corks for fortified, sparkling, and still wines.
