Decorative Cages to Store Wine Corks

When you savor a bottle of wine that fit perfectly with a meal, why not keep the cork for a momento. Some people save them just to remember the occasion, others just like the looks of them on display and some save the wine corks to make craft projects. Whatever your reason, you don't want the corks to just be clutter on the bar counter or in a kitchen drawer. Get a decorative cork cage to showcase your stash of wine corks.

It's amazing the design choices there are for cork cages. I've selected some of the nicest ones for you to browse.

Wine Barrel Cork Cage - available from Amazon

This wine barrel shape has a nice "old world" feel to it. Fill it with your wine corks that you are saving. It's decorated nicely with metal grape leaves and will look great on your kitchen counter or on a side table in the dining room.

This is a pretty nifty idea. Besides being decorative and holding the corks, this one sheds light on your home bar or wherever you place it.

I might need to get several of these and put them at each end of the breakfast bar.

Having Wine with Dinner? Save That Cork!

If it's a special night out on the town, maybe a birthday or anniversary, ask the waiter to save the cork for you.

A great nostalgic design for anyone who grew up in the country. I know my sister would love it. You can see the corks through the lattice sides of the windmill.

      I do save my corks and give to a friend who makes things with them but I didn't know there was such a thing as a cork cage. I keep mine in a giant oversized wine glass but might have to get a cork cage.

      I like the wine barrel cork cage and the sleigh shaped wine bottle holder. Very clever!

      This is a great lens featuring something I have never even thought of. My wife and I collect the corks to make cork boards with. I am sending her your link so she can do some looking:)

      Extremely cool. These sure beat the glass bowl we keep our wine corks in...

      Thanks

      These are really neat! I wish I drank enough wine to save some corks this way -- they look nice and fun. I've known people who saved corks for the memories and just stashed them in a big basket or jar, which was OK, but this is MUCH nicer! (I had no idea what to expect from this lens -- what a surprise!)

      As always, you totally inspire me with your creativity in these lenses. I never even would have thought of holders for corks (besides the trash can!). Love this lens!

      Can I add my screw lids to the cage? Fun lens!

      Who knew that corks could be or should be caged? I really like the cork wreath. Neat ideas here. People should cage their corks while they can, as there are more and more "fake" corks on bottles.

      never heard of a wine cork cage before, but since I drink wine and save the corks for crafts all over the place in jars, this would be good:)
