Wine cork Christmas tree ornaments are the perfect way to reuse those wine corks you may have been hoarding for some time. Before you call Alcoholics Anonymous on me, know that I have been collecting wine corks for the last five years just waiting for opportunities to craft with them.
Last year I made Christmas trees out of wine corks and they turned out marvelous!
I am in love with the way they look on our Christmas Tree this year!
Don’t fret if you don’t have wine corks laying around. Did you know that companies sell wine corks in bulk for craft projects?
How to Make Wine Cork Christmas Tree Ornaments
Recycled wine corks or you can buy them in bulk from Amazon. (You will need 10.5 wine corks for each tree)
Glue Gun with glue
Twine or ribbon
Acrylic paint in various colors (red, green, gray)
Dip 10 corks into paint like a stamp. Wait for paint to dry. (Tip: You can blow dry them after you glue them together if you don’t want to wait for the paint to dry).
Tie the twine or ribbon around one cork and make a bow at the top. Leave enough twine so you can use it to hang as an ornament if you choose that route. Some people like the wine cork Christmas tree ornaments to stand up on a shelf or mantle.
Now starting with one cork start hot gluing them into a pyramid shape. Layer them 1, 2, 3, & 4 wine corks per layer.
Next, cut one wine cork in half with a sharp knife or saw. Some choose to boil the wine corks to soften them making it easier to cut through, but I did not have time to do that so I enlisted my strong husband to do this part.
Glue the wine work stump to the bottom of the wine cork pyramid.
Feel free to make different types of wine cork Christmas trees. I made a multicolored tree that I really loved!
I hope you enjoy making these adorable wine cork Christmas trees. May I reccomend drinking a glass of wine while making them? (If you are of drinking age of course!) This project would be great for a Christmas girls craft night. Crafting is always more fun with others.
