We have a wine cork collector/holder on the bar, and it has filled up several times over the years and I haven’t had the heart to throw them away. I would dump them in a collection box in my craft room awaiting some great project.

Wine Cork Wreath Materials Needed:

We had corks in our stash that were sorta plain and not as pretty and since we need at least two layers, we started with the plain corks first.   Set aside some of the most unusual or interesting corks and save them for the top layer of the wreath.

Apply hot glue to the back of each plainer cork or those you decided to be on the first layer and place it to cover as much of the foam wreath as possible in a haphazard fashion.

After the wreath is covered with corks, start the second layer, gluing the prettier corks or your favorite winery’s corks in a haphazard fashion covering the first layer of corks.

If you are not lucky enough to find the perfect arrangement of greenery, the sprigs can be cut apart then glued together in an arrangement of your choosing.  We added some of the same cranberries in our floral arrangement as we would be placing around the wreath.

Hot glue the completed greenery arrangement to the top of the wreath or if you wish to the bottom or sides.

 

 

Cut the cranberry sprays into small bunches or glue bunches together and place them around the wreath and hot glue them.

 

Hot glue a hanger on the back to hang it on your door.  This Christmas wine cork wreath would also look beautiful in a foyer or on an inside wall.


** Also, just a tip, do not let these corks get wet, this wreath is not to be hung out in the weather.

Hi Evelyn, What size is your wreath? How many corks did you use on this? I have about 200 corks to work with. Wondering if I can replicate your look or if I want to use these for another project. Your cork wreath is the best I’ve seen. ? Thank you!

You are right a great idea would have been to count cork but I unfortunately didn’t. Bummer. I can’t remember how big it is but as soon as I get home I’ll measure it because I’ve forgotten.

Everytime I glue a cork on my wreath it doesn't stay. I use a generous amount of glue bit still will not stick. What am I doing wrong? I am using a straw wreath.

I think it's the straw. We used a solid styrofoam wreath. I'm so sorry you are having trouble, maybe replace the wreath with styrofoam.

I love this! Did you glue corks on the back of the wreath too?

Thanks so much. No, we only glued them on the sides and front and placed them so it would hang flat against the door.

Do you have a recommendation for what kind of hook to use on the back to hang it?

Great question. Thanks for asking and reminding me that I do need to share how we hang it. I had to go look at it again to remember but we used picture hanging wire hot glued to the back. I will update the post and share pictures asap.
