A few friends and I got together yesterday to make wreaths out of used corks from the many bottles of wine we’ve drank (over the years)… And, O what fun it was (the drinking and the making)!
Scotty and I created a smaller (8″ round) cork wreath,
but you can make any size you’d like… keeping on reading to look at more versions.
8″ round styrofoam wreath
70 +/- corks
Hot glue gun
(a 12″-14″ round styrofoam wreath would take about 150 +/- corks)
Start building your wreath one cork at a time…
One mini hot glue gun for 3 ladies = a FUN morning!
With coffee in hand and kids at our feet, we were off making our wreaths!
Ela was making a different style wreath (which was a bit difficult),
using wood cranberries, between each cork.
I attempted the same version, and had to tweak it a bit.
Instead of a cranberry between each cork, I attached the corks and
then added a cranberry on top ~ See below
Once the wreath was glued together, it still seemed a bit unstable, so I bent a wire coat hanger into a round shape and hot glued it on the back.
Sorry to say, I haven’t finished it yet….but hope to post it later today! :)
Love the idea and want to create your own?
Here are some other versions…
