Learn how to make this beautiful wine cork tray using a stretched canvas!

I was gifted a big bag of corks and instantly knew I wanted to make a tray out of them. This tray was super easy to make. The base is a stretched canvas that I spray painted gold and the handles are beads strung onto 28-gauge wire that you can find at any hardware store.

How to Make a Wine Cork Tray Using a Stretched Canvas

Start by spray painting your stetched canvas, front, back and all sides that will show.

Once your canvas is dry, add the screw eyes where you want your handle to go. My canvas was 11" long on the sides so I measured in 3.5" in from the ends and placed my screw eye as shown above. Snip two pieces of wire with scissors to form into a handle. String with beads and wrap around the screw eye 4-5 times, then around the wire itself to secure each handle. Note: I cut two 10-inch pieces of wire to make my handles, that was long enough to have some excess to wrap and secure to the screw eye.

Arrange the corks into the base of the tray any way you’d like.

Once you have the corks arranged, pick up each cork, one at a time, and hot glue them down. I glued them with the labels up.

To make the finished edge I simply hot glued ribbon around the top edge of the tray. This added a decorative touch and cover the staples on the canvas.
