Need a last minute gift idea? If you save up your wine corks, I have one perfect for you!
I have been saving wine corks for over ten years. It all started back in my bartending days and I have kept it going since. I have two huge containers full of them, so I am always on the lookout for a great cork craft project.
The small ones were super easy and quick to make. You basically just glue wine corks together as shown in the photo above. I purchased these little red bows at my local craft shop. So, all you need is a glue gun and some corks for this project – with an optional tree topper.
For the larger tree, you will want to use a styrofoam tree shape as the base and glue your corks around in a circle. Then you just glue the corks all the way to the top going in a circle trying not to leave many gaps. I found the large tree topper at my local craft store that had a wire spring at the bottom, so I was able to easily attach it to the top of the styrofoam.
Cute, huh? These make perfect gifts for a wine lover. I already gifted some to my mom as an early Christmas gift 🙂
Happy Holidays Everyone!
