Put Those Corks
To Good Use
After you pop that cork from your favorite wine bottle, don’t toss it in the trash. Instead, save it. A hundred corks later and you could have a beautiful handmade wreath like this one!
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
- 8-inch wreath form (we used a twig one)
- Hot-glue gun
- Nail polish (we used gold and aqua)
Paint the corks with nail polish
Place the corks on Styrofoam or cardboard and carefully paint about a quarter of them with the nail polish.
Let dry completely before gluing (about an hour).
Glue corks onto the wreath
Glue the corks onto the wreath in a random order.
If you want something a bit more structured, glue them in a circular pattern.
Let the wreath dry for at least an hour. Hang carefully with ribbon and enjoy!
