Easier than you think DIY Wine Cork Wreath Tutorial

Wow after coming off a girls weekend it sure is hard to get back into the blogosphere. My husband did a great job, but there, of course, are things to catch up on, including sleep! Fortunately, I found this post in my drafts that I am not quite sure why I never finished…Lucky me.

After a few years of collecting wine corks and my hurricane filled to the top, I thought it was time to do a major craft. It was time to start on my DIY Wine Cork Wreath Tutorial.

DIY Wine Cork Wreath Tutorial

I did some searching online for cork wreaths and soon realized I really did not have enough for the size I wanted. So I improvised a few tutorials and came up with this one.

What you will need to make a cork wreath:

Hay wreath, size depends on how big you want the wreath
Sewing Push Pins
Glue gun and glue sticks
corks, corks corks
Ribbon for hanging

Here are a few of the website directions I used to make this one.
I used Wine cork wreath tutorial to start filling in the inside of the wreath. (I used push pins instead of dealing with cutting toothpicks)  This wine cork wreath technique uses up fewer corks and fills it in nicely.

This one for the directions of sticking the corks out.

Here is a closer look at the wreath.

 

 

WHAT TYPES OF WINE CORKS SHOULD I USE?

 
This project cleared me out of corks. It is best not to use the plastic ones as they are hard to add the pins as well as changes the look slightly. I did use a few for the interior circle as you really can not see them.
 
 You will have hay all over your workspace!! It was really easy to sit and do while watching tv. I just worked as an assembly line preparing the corks then adding them to the wreath. My kids even helped out.
 
I was pleased with the results, very easy  and happy to refill my cork container again!

What fun projects have you made with Corks?
