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 the 28-gauge wire that you can find at any hardware store.
I love this tray and how it adds a little warmth and old-world charm to our home. Get the details below on how to make this beautiful tray!

How to Make a Wine Cork Tray Using a Stretched Canvas
Start by spray painting your stretched canvas, front, back, and all sides that will show. For this DIY, you’ll be using the back side of the canvas!

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-inches from the ends and placed my screw eye as shown above.
Snip two pieces of wire with scissors to form a handle. String with beads and wrap around the screw eye 4-5 times, then around the wire itself to secure each handle.
Arrange all of the corks into the base of the tray. 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 finish, I hot glued gold-chevron patterned ribbon that I found at Dollar Tree around the top edges of my tray. This added a decorative touch and cover the staples on the canvas!
I generally keep mine on the counter but if you plan to carry it as a serving tray, you may want to reinforce the bottom by gluing on craft plywood!
