If you love drinking wine, you probably have a collection of corks at home. One of the best ways to repurpose them is by turning them into beautiful decor that you can hang around your house. Here’s an easy-to-make wine cork wreath DIY idea by Wood Brain by Lindsay Zuelich on Youtube. It looks lovely and I just like the different shades of red and pink on the end of each cork. Watch the video below for detailed instructions.
Get one sewing pin and insert it into one wine cork. Once it’s inserted, add a little bit of hot glue and then push it into the wreath and hold it for a few seconds until it’s dry. The pin will be halfway through the cork. Do the same for the other wine corks.
Tie a thin cotton rope on the top right of the wreath. Make sure to leave just a little bit of slack, then cut the excess. Repeat on the top left of the wreath. Once done, tie a rope between the two of them that will act as the hanger of the wreath. Add a little bit of glue on both sides and roll the rope to the glue to keep it more secure.
Insert the corks starting at the outside of the wreath. Try to keep the wreath as flat as possible. Work your way up with more rows until it’s flat on top, then continue until the last layer they are slanted towards the center. Flip the wreath and make another layer on the inside.
Start gluing the wine corks from the inside and work your way up. The corks must be slanted at an almost 45-degree angle. Make sure to push it inside. There will be some gaps in between. Once done all the way up, flip it over and fill the voids.
Cut a ring from the thin foam sheets with the same diameter as the wreath and glue it on the back.
