Wine cork wreath..

Saw this on Huffington Post:

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/chris-barnes/repurposing-ideas-5-new-uses-wine-corks_b_2277640.html

and it made me think of my own Wine cork wreath creation!

While at dinner at NoFo @ The Pig (Five Points – Raleigh) I saw this really cool wreath made out of wine corks. I had to examine it up close and personal to see if I could make it myself! I checked it out and determined that yes, indeedy, I could make it at home.. I would never have bought that one for these reasons:
1) *MY* corks have sentimental value to me!
2) theirs was wayy too expensive!

I decided to make this wreath. I have been collecting wine corks since DH and I got engaged – which is a loooong time πŸ˜‰

I bought a straw wreath (with coupon) at AC Moore for about $2. I also bought more glue sticks while I was there! (takes a lot of glue!)

I then sorted the corks. All the favorite ones (Silverado, Silver Oak, LaCrema, Cakebread) went into a stack and the rest in another pile. DD and I started on the inside of the wreath with all the favorite winery’s corks and worked our way out. I held and she glued, then when my arms got tired, she held and I glued. Might have taken all of 30 minutes, and what a fabulous wreath we made!

  1. Super cute! I saw your comment on Huff Post and decided to stop on over. I’m looking for a “next cork project” – maybe I’ll end up doing a wreath like yours! Here’s what I did with my corks – http://muchadoaboutsomethin.blogspot.com/2012/06/wine-cork-bulletin-board.html
