DIY Wine Cork Ornaments

posted in: the nest/diy | 0

We were in The Container Store perusing about when I spotted these Christmas ornaments. At $5 each, I thought it seemed a little pricey for something that could easily be made (and have fun doing it…wine anyone?!).

Okay, so I didn’t actually drink that much wine but I did stop by my local Total Wine and More and they gave me a bag of used corks for free! I’ve also seen a bag of new/unused corks for sale in the home decor section of Target.

What To Do:

  1. Glue the wine corks into lines. For each ornament, you’ll need the following:

  2. After the glue has cooled, glue then together to form the tree. Let glue cool.

  3. Using the twine, wind it around the “tree” and tie a knot at the top of the tree. While the glue cools, use the knife to cut a wine cork in half to be used as the trunk of the christmas tree.

  4. Glue the half cork onto the bottom of the tree and the bow to the top.

  5. Use one of the wine corks to stamp color onto the ends.

  6. Time to tie up the top! Make a small loop from twine and as you are tying the top strings into a bow, add in the loop (for hanging).11
