Wine Cork Christmas Tree

Back in 2013 I made a few Christmas ornaments with wine corks and bottle caps. At that time I had an idea for another cork craft (inspired from Pinterest, of course!), but had to replenish my supply of wine corks first… So here we are, 2 years later and my wine corks were overflowing again! I was able to make another cork craft — so here’s my wine cork Christmas tree!


This little tree was very easy to make. I selected my corks, dipped a few tips in green ink, hot glued them all together, and then added a little ribbon and wooden star to the top. This little tree is pretty similar to the cork pumpkin I made too… :-) They’re just adorable!


Cork Pumpkin

Happy Halloween! Even though my spare time for crafts has been pretty limited this fall, I managed to pull together half an hour to create this adorable cork pumpkin! It was a quick, easy craft, and so cute. :-)

CorkPumpkinThe idea/model for my pumpkin came from this pin on pinterest. When I found it, I knew I just had to make one for myself! I had been saving my corks for another Christmas project (I had used many corks last year for some ornaments)… but I decided to use them for my pumpkin instead!

cork pumpkin materialsMaterials:

  • 24 – wine corks
  • 1 – champagne cork
  • string
  • green felt
  • orange stamping ink
  • hot glue gun
  • scissors

Pumpkin corksFirst I inked each end of all of my regular wine corks. Some of them don’t soak up the ink very well, so you might want to have extra paper or paper towel nearby to stamp off the extra! (Need any orange circles for any other craft?!)

Next I glued my pumpkin together. I probably used more hot glue than I needed, but I wanted to make sure that my pumpkin stayed together!

I didn’t leave much extra string curling around it the stem because I was afraid my cats would eat it… if they weren’t so naughty, I definitely would have!

That’s all it takes! Now I have a cute cork pumpkin sitting next to my wine!

Wine Cork & Bottle Cap Christmas Ornaments

I tend to save things that might have a crafty purpose in the future, and when I come across the perfect use for my saved “crafty things” I get excited! This Christmas I was really inspired with wine corks and bottle caps! All ideas were from pinterest! Here are my versions:

Believe it or not, there is at least one other wine cork Christmas decoration I would like to make, but at the moment, my wine cork collection isn’t large enough for me to make it… guess I’ll have to drink more wine and try again next year! ;-)
