I looooove collecting wine corks. I usually display them in a pretty vase on the bookshelf, much to my husband's dismay. :) I put the corks to good use last year and made a Christmas ornament. This year, I made a wreath!
glue gun & glue
wine corks (A LOT!)
I'm definitely going to make this wreath again (maybe for a lucky sister or friend!?). Lessons learned: Next time, I will wrap the wreath with ribbon before gluing the corks, to make the spaces in between the corks less noticeable. Also, I'm going to buy a thicker ribbon, possibly in a deep red color, to hang the wreath. FYI, have a knife on hand in case you have to cut a cork or two in order to make them fit!
