Wine Cork Crafts: Holiday Ornaments
Happy holidays, Wine Sisters! The season of wine gifting is here and we put on our craftiest hats to bring you a DIY Wine Cork Ornament to add some festive flair to your wine presents.
We stuck to snowflakes and trees for this wine cork craft, but feel free to stretch your creativity and come up with your own designs. From start to finish, this craft should keep you or your holiday guests busy for a couple of hours.
And speaking of guests… If they manage to work their way through your wine collection over the holidays, we know the best place to find more: our Bottle Shop! And, when you sign up for our email list, you’ll get a merry little code to save 15% on your first order of 6+ bottles.
Step 1: Gather Supplies
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 6-10 wine corks (or more!)
- Sharp knife (we used a box cutter)
- Hot glue gun
- Craft glue
- Festive stickers/decorations
Step 2: Cut Corks
We wanted to stretch our cork supply, so we cut each one into four pieces (about half-inch slices). You could also use corks whole or cut them in half, depending on the size of the ornament you’d like to make.
Step 3: Glue Corks into Shapes
Use your hot glue gun to create shapes with your pieces of cork. Again, we went with two simple designs: snowflake and tree. The creative possibilities here are almost endless. Other ideas you could try: snowman, candy cane, sleigh and wreath.
Step 4: Add Glitter/Paint and Decorations
To keep the mess to a minimum, we used small paper plates to hold our different colors of glitter. Once you add glue to your ornament, simply press it into the glitter and shake off excess.
Step 5: Fasten Ribbon
Finally, get your ornament ready for presenting by gluing a piece of ribbon to the back. Once dry, hang your ornament from the neck of a wine bottle as a gift or proudly place it on your tree for all to admire.
