DIY wine cork wreath

With your kids home from school for the summer, drinking 100 bottles of wine might not take as long as you might think. (Trust us.) So grab your girlfriends, share a bottle (responsibly, of course) and make a few of these painted wine cork wreaths, which are unique and perfect for any season.

What you’ll need:

  • 100 or so wine corks

  • Hot-glue gun
