DIY Cork Key

No more worries about dropping your boat key in the ocean, with a cork attached it’ll float! You only need a loop screw, a small key chain ring, a wine cork and your key.

    I’ve lost two corks this way and almost lost a third today. Use an artificial cork and glue around the screw. Even with glue, real cork doesn’t hold up well to the rigors of a key chain. Fun stuff tho! Enjoy!

      Great tip :-) My key is made out of light aluminium, so it’ll might hold up the rigors of the small key chain – time will show ;-)

    What a great idea! We love wine, and save corks for other projects but I never thought to do this. And in fact, I believe my husband has some rings in his tool box. Definitely going to do this :) Would make a great gift to when the gift includes a key, like a new car, motorcycle, boat, or new apartment.
