Supplies Needed for Making a DIY Wine Cork Ornament
You will need a few things in order to make this specific wine cork craft. Of course, you will need wine corks but that is just the beginning. Hot glue works best for this craft but you will want to use it lightly.
Too much glue can ruin the end results. You will also need something to slice the corks. Scissors could work but they may scrunch up the cork. That will ultimately ruin the design. However, you can use an Exacto knife for a smoother finish.
You will also need a few things for the finishing touches. Ribbon and twine work best but you should feel free to get creative here.
That is the point of DIY crafts, to customize and freestyle your way through the directions. You will find that the directions below give plenty of way for you to express yourself in the final product.
Directions for Making a DIY Wine Cork Ornament
Plugin your hot glue gun and prep your workspace for cutting the corks.
Slice wine corks into round discs about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick.
Trace and cut out 1 star from one of the discs as well as a trunk for the bottom.
Layout your design to create a tree shape. 4 discs then 3, 2, 1 and a star on top.
Now you can begin with the hot glue, start with small dabs on either side and connect your discs.
Attach your trunk and star with hot glue.
Punch hole for the twine or hot glue it to the back if you prefer that look.
Add some paint, sparkles, or mini battery lights if you want to spruce up your design!
These also make a great DIY gift tag for your favorite bottles of wine! Santa will have a great little helper this year in the wine and crafts department!
