How to use 2" cork circles?
I am asking all you creative people out there for ideas to use approximately 200 of these 2" cork circles. I bought when I was making large Lego props out of tissue boxes but I bought too many. The only ideas I have found so far is a cork board, trivet or bath mat, none of which I need right now. Before I send to a thrift shop, I would love to hear your ideas.

Hi Andrea, You could make a table runner to place hot items on, make a retro lampshade, or using an old picture frame, you could paint them and make a mosaic work of art! You could attach them to the top of a small side table, make a decorative frame for a mirror, make a calendar, hot glue some pretty beads on them to make earrings, you could either hang or hot glue them to use as labels on things.
Hope these ideas help!
Coasters or artwork.
If it were me I would wood burn them or stain them and make them coasters and sell them online or in a garage sale. Hope this helps, Andrea.
Make some round coasters,and use as a bottom.
I have glued them on to flower pots, a quick spray of paint they are cute. Check out pinterest, there are lots of ideas.
These small DIY Cork Board Memo Boards are cute: https://www.homedit.com/31-things-you-never-knew-you-could-do-with-cork/1-cork-board/
My immediate thought was lots of lovely colors as a modern piece of art, alternatively you could paint both sides and use them to create a mobile - enjoy whatever you make
Thank you to everyone for all your wonderful ideas. Happy Spring (although we are getting snow tomorrow in Northern Illinois...yikes!)
You can turn these into cool geometric art by painting designs on them and hanging on the wall together. You can turn them into coasters or chore chart pieces.
