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.

Wine Cork Christmas Gift


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.

Wine Cork Christmas Tree Gift DIY


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!
