Use some DIY wine cork wreaths to give the best homemade gifts any wino could wish to receive. Since it’s DIY, it has a personal element that can’t be found in store-bought gifts. We’ve all heard it before, gifts made from the heart mean more than those bought from the store.
But still, when it comes time to find a gift for someone, we head out to the stores or shop online. Try something different this year and make something to give to someone. The perfect place to start is with DIY wine cork wreaths. Wine cork wreaths come in many different styles and can be made with ease.
You can opt to purchase a bunch of wine corks for this project or use any you have lying around. Your DIY wine cork wreaths can be personalized, and the extra time and effort you put into this gift will make the person receiving it feel special. Isn’t that the whole purpose of a gift anyway?
Cleaning Wine Corks
Using wine corks in crafts is a fun idea and a wonderful way to reuse something that you would otherwise just throw away. But you will want to clean the corks first which means you will need to know how to clean corks for crafts.
Luckily, this process is extremely easy. First, fill a container with hot water. Make sure the container can fit all of the corks you plan to use. Then, add a splash of hydrogen peroxide to the hot water and soak the corks in the mixture. Keep the corks soaking overnight and then remove them and let them dry out again.

Most cork is relatively easy to cut into the right thickness that you want. However, not all cork is created equal. There are different levels of thickness that can determine the level of difficulty you will have cutting it. Delicate to medium cork is the easiest to cut but you may need something stronger.
You can use a mini saw to cut thicker cork if that’s all you have available. The most important thing is that you cut slowly. This process will take some time, but you can easily tear the cork the wrong way if you move too fast. That is why you want to go slow and steady and start your project with cutting the cork.
