Best Wine Cork Holders

If you are like most wine lovers, you may be collecting wine corks with or without a specific purpose. Most people like to showcase their label collection, but some people just love a good art project or practical use for all those corks they’ve accumulated over time. Either way, collecting wine corks is the thing to do in most households and a smart way of decorating and recycling. We are almost sure that most cork collectors already have a Pinterest board with tons of wine cork inspiration and DIY projects standing by.

We get it because we also like to collect our own wine corks. Besides, the natural colors and materials, the scent of wine, and the decoration possibilities are truly endless. If you are among those wine cork enthusiasts that just don’t seem to figure out what to do with the cork collection, we are here to give you some great ideas.

After finishing each bottle of wine, most people would choose to keep the cork. Usually, it ends up stored in a drawer until the collection is big enough to be displayed. When it gets big enough, the cork collection ends up in a transparent container or a jar on the kitchen counter. We know that every time you look at that jar, it sparks your imagination, so today, we’re talking about the best wine cork holders that can enhance your home décor and style.

Although there are endless arts & crafts projects and DIYs all around the internet, we believe that a creative wine cork holder can elevate your home décor and create a cozier environment for you to enjoy. Besides, not everyone needs to be a skilled DIYer, or invest the time into an art project that doesn’t come with a guarantee that it would turn out decent looking.

That being said, there are some great alternatives for cork holders on the market, some that look polished, and others with that rustic look that everyone loves.

Here are some great ideas that you can implement in your own home without the hassle of making them yourself.

1. Use cork holders as centerpieces

No idea how to decorate your tables, cabinets, or drawers? Choose an art statement and put it on display. You can find all sorts of cute containers like barrels, wine bottle holders, trays in all shapes and sizes. Whatever your style is, nothing says “I love wine” like a table centerpiece. Choose your holder style and size, take out your corks, and put them on display in the Livingroom, kitchen, hallway, and even outside in your garden.

2. No paintings or wall art? No problem!

If you still have blank walls that you have been meaning to decorate but never settled on the idea, decorating them with wine corks is the way to go. You can use a classic wall holder or even find monogram letters in holder forms that you can use to spell your name or favorite word. There are endless possibilities, and such a wall piece can really become the center of attention in a room, effortlessly.

3. Functional art

For those who want to combine esthetics with functionality, there are some great solutions for your cork collection. Holders that are mounted on the wall and are meant to keep your wine bottles, glasses, and corks, are the best way to ensure everything is in one place. Plus, you also get a beautiful wall decoration that showcases your love for wine.

Whether you are all about storing big, home décor, functionality, or all three combined, let’s take a look at some of the best options for your precious wine corks.

We compiled a list of some of the best wine cork holders that you can purchase today, so take a look at the products below and choose your favorites:

Suppose you are looking for something both decorative and functional. In that case, this golden pineapple-shaped cork holder is what you need to see.

It’s made of durable steel, and it has that bright gold finish that goes with just about any style of home décor. It can store over 100 corks, so it has a pretty decent capacity for a decorative table piece. It is a great conversation starter, and you can put it anywhere, from the kitchen counter to the dining room table, up on shelves, or on the nightstand. It will surely catch some eyes, so make it a centerpiece if you would like.

It is made in the US, and it measures 6.5 x 6.5 x 14 inches. The top cap (the pineapple leaves) opens so you can have easy access. We loved the decorative pineapple cork holder, but the best thing with this company is that it offers 35 more fun and fascinating designs to choose from.

The price is a bit higher compared to other similar products, but the quality is definitely there. Overall, we are in love with these little wine cork holders that can transform every home environment because they look so cool!

This one is truly a multifunctional product. This is what we were talking about when we described the functional art part.

At this very affordable price, you get everything you need to store wine corks, wine bottles, wine glasses, and you even get a set of six wine glass charms. This is a complete solution for a wine lover, indeed. The charms are made of corks, all of them with different fun messages. They are made to be attached to the stem of your glass, ensuring that everyone can identify their own wine glass.

This wine rack is made of metal and it goes on your wall. You can mount it on your kitchen wall, dining room wall, or wherever you usually like to enjoy a glass of wine after a long day.

The wine glass holder can hold four glasses and a cork tray that is very easy to access. In fact, the whole concept is well-organized, so you can quickly grab a wine bottle, a glass, and enjoy your quiet evening. It also makes a great wall piece, as the industrial metal finish is on-trend, and can blend in well with most design styles.

At this price point, being affordable, but still of good quality, and serving multiple purposes, you can even purchase it as a gift for someone who loves wine as much as you do. Not only will you enjoy a complete solution for your wine nights, but you also get a one-year warranty, no questions asked.

What we like:

• Easy to mount on the wall
• Holds four wine glasses
• Holds up to 5 bottles of wine/champagne
• Well-organized

If you are into frames and have a blank wall or just an empty spot on a wall that you want to fill it with something cute, this is a good idea.

This little box frame is perfect as a cork holder, and it also looks good as a piece of art on your wall. You can choose to mount it on the wall or put it on a table, as it is wide and stable enough to stand on its own. It comes in two colors: Birch and Black. We chose the black one and then realized that it was around 10 dollars more expensive than the other. If you really want it, just know that there are customers who decided to buy it in Birch and coat it with black paint themselves. Other than the high price, this is a fun cork holder that reads, “The best wines are the ones we drink together”. It is also an excellent gift for your friends or family members that are wine lovers or wine cork collectors.

It’s also easy to use once you install it. It has a hole on the top for dropping your wine corks after you have finished your wine bottle. Although it is not a unique art piece, this is something that goes with any decoration style, and it looks good both on the wall or on the bar/counter. However, if you are a true collector, this cork holder won’t fit enough corks. Some users said they could fit 20-30 corks at a time.

What we like:

• Functional and decorative frame
• Perfect as a gift for wine lovers
• Can be mounted on the wall or stand by itself

What could be improved:

• Expensive
• On the back imagery (in the box) there is a tag glued on there. When you remove it, it tends to leave glue marks.
• It doesn’t hold a decent amount of corks

This cork holder can beautify any kitchen counter, bar, or table space. We love this industrial design and the fact that it is shaped like a glass of wine.

Suppose you are looking for a décor piece that also serves as a wine cork holder. In that case, this one offers you both a practical and aesthetical way of displaying your collection. It can hold over 50 corks, both large and small, so champagne corks will fit in there hassle-free. The cork holder is as tall as a wine bottle, measuring 7 x 7 x 12 inches.

It has that industrial look to it due to the vintage brass coloring, and a sturdy metallic base. It also has a bunch of grapes made from metal on it that looks great. This wine glass cork holder is straightforward to use. Just drop your corks inside; no need to open anything.

Overall, this wine holder can definitely make a statement, and it doesn’t look cheap, although it has an affordable price.

What we like:

• Industrial design
• It holds over 50 corks
• Easy to use – just drop the corks in
• Affordable
• It can be used as a large container for anything you want to put inside

What could be improved:

This one is for those who love DIY arts & crafts. If you enjoy making things from scratch and creating your own designs, this wine cork board kit is for you.

As the manufacturer states in their product description, “half the fun is in the making”, as you only get the wooden frame. The corks and crafting skills are all yours. The bulletin board is made of mahogany wood, which means you have a stable and durable surface to play with.

The board measures 16 x 2 x 2 inches, and it can be hung up on the wall, or made into a cool tray – the possibilities are endless. It can hold approximately 128 wine corks, and it works by gluing them to the board. That’s exactly what makes this DIY project fun, as you can create your own design using the corks you already have, or you can develop the design as you consume more wine. Making your own cork board can make you appreciate it more when it is finished because it’s not something you bought, but something you created yourself.

If you have no idea how to begin, in the package, you get instructions or suggestions for different designs. However, if you want to gift it to someone, know that it takes some time to fill the frame with wine corks. Maybe 128 corks don’t sound like much, but if you don’t already own a small cork collection, it could take a long time to see a finished product.

All in all, we think this is an excellent idea for creative people and wine enthusiasts that want to store their wine memories uniquely.

What we like:

• Creative DIY project to do at home
• High-quality mahogany wood frame
• Versatile product – you can use it in many ways
• Great as a decoration
• Great way to preserve your wine memories
• Around 128 corks needed to complete the project

What could be improved:

• If you want a finished product fast, this one is not for you
• it is a bit expensive for a simple frame

Who says you could not be a wine lover and dog lover at the same time? If you are looking for a cute piece of home décor that also includes functionality. This dog-shaped and rustic-looking wine cork holder is perfect for animal lovers that also have a cork collection or want to start one. It also makes an excellent gift for all occasions.

It has a storage capacity of up to 30 corks, so it’s not so much about the capacity, but rather about the home décor. If you are a hardcore cork collector, this might not be your cup of tea. On the other hand, if you are just starting, this holder can be a great way to store all your wine memories.

You can use it on the countertop, on shelves, or wherever you want to spice up your home décor. The brushed metal finish gives it a rustic antique look that quickly blends in. It is easy to use – just tilt the head and drop your corks in.

Of all the cork holders, we love these wine cork holder letters for several reasons. Let’s start by saying that, besides just letters, you can choose the “and” symbol, the heart symbol, or the “wine” spelled out.

These wine cork holder letters can be used for creative projects and can make an excellent gift for a bridal shower, a wedding gift, or a birthday gift. They can serve for more than just collecting wine corks. You can use them as planters or pots, or as shadow boxes.

Measuring 12 inches in height, 2 inched in-depth, and 10.5 inches in width, the letters are made out of durable metal and painted with a glossy black finish. You can stack your corks inside without needing additional glue, as they are deep enough to hold the corks.

The letters come with eyelets on the back, so they could be hung up on a wall or stand freely on the countertop (most of the letters – for example, something rounded like the letter “O” won’t be able to stand by itself).

In terms of capacity, it depends on the shape of the letter. For example, the letter “A” holds approximately 75 corks, while “B” would hold up to 100. Choose your letter or symbol and read the description. You will find the different capacities for each one.

We like the versatility of this product, as it can be used in many ways for many creative projects. As a wine cork holder, this is perfect as a monogram on the main room, or even if you spell out your favorite words. It looks great when it is filled with corks, and it can elevate any home décor instantly.

What we like:

• Excellent price point, affordable
• Versatile – you can use the letters for various arts & crafts projects
• Can be hung on the wall

The design is simply beautiful. It has multi-colored glass accents that give the barrel an artistic touch.

This oversized barrel can hold over 100 wine corks and measures 10 inches in height and 7 inches in diameter. It is made of high-quality metal, so it has a sturdy and durable construction.

It has a lid that you can easily lift to add more wine corks, but there is also a hole in the top, so you can just drop them through. This eye-catching piece can make a statement anywhere you decide to display it. It also makes an excellent gift for Christmas, birthdays, or even a bridal shower.

If you liked the barrel cork holder that we’ve been previously reviewing, this one has the same concept, but it’s meant to go up on your wall. This is exclusively designed to go on your wall, as it is a half barrel.

Nonetheless, it holds over 50 wine corks, so it has a good capacity. We love the stylish and rustic design and whimsical feeling it has. It is almost like a piece of art with its entwined colored glass spheres and bronze leaves. It looks great in the dining room, kitchen, or even the outside wall that faces your garden. It can quickly become a centerpiece wherever you decide to mount it.

The metal construction is sturdy, and it is easy to install. Needless to say, it is a perfect gift idea for the wine lovers in your family and friends’ groups.

This is yet another rugged metal holder, this time in the shape of a wine bottle. The wine cork holder is actually a bit taller than a real wine bottle, which means that it can store a good amount of corks. Speaking of storage, the manufacturer doesn’t mention the exact number of corks that could fit in. Still, it can hold approximately 40-50 wine corks.

It is easy to use – drop your corks in the bottle’s neck and remove them from the bottom. It has a hinged base that opens so you can easily remove the corks.

The metal construction is sturdy, and the cage design is excellent, as you can easily see your corks inside. Some wine lovers like to date their corks, so a holder like this allows them to clearly see their wine memories.

It can be a great addition to your wine collection, or you can put it on display anywhere you want. This serves as a great decorative piece, and it can definitely stand out.

What we like:

• Nicely designed, great attention to details
