The next installment in the Pagan Uses series: 5 Pagan Uses for Wine Corks! Wine corks are ever popular in craft projects and home décor but they are just as useful in a pagan context. So pop open a bottle of your favorite vintage and make a little magick!
- Wine corks can be associated with the same magickal correspondences as wine: union and sharing. Wine is a social drink and reflects that in the magick that is possible with it. For example, consume a bottle of wine with close friends and have everyone write their name on the cork to keep the group close and connected over time.
- Use hot glue to adhere wine corks inside a small shadow box for use as a trivet on your altar.
- Hot glue wine corks together side by side to form a pentacle shape. Hang on a wall or door from a length of wide ribbon.
- Write the names of flowers and herbs you intend to use for magickal and/or edible purposes on wine corks with a permanent marker. Stick the corks onto the ends of sharpened wooden dowels and place in pots as plant markers.
- Place a small vase of flowers inside a larger vase and fill the space between the two with wine corks. Place in the center of a communal table.
