  1. 1

    Lay down some newspaper to make sure your table or work area stays protected. The hot glue can drip and you don't want to make a mess that will be difficult to clean up.

  2. 2

    Glue the corks to your wreath base. This can be done by applying the glue to one side of the cork and pressing the cork to the base until it is securely attached. The corks can be glued on top of each other neatly, or staggered.

  3. 3

    Embellish the wreath and add some holiday decor by gluing on some bells, a few ornaments or a big red bow. Wrap a thin red bow around the whole wreath and tie it at the bottom, or add some big shiny ball ornaments to the wreath. These can be hot glued to the corks.

  4. 4

    Allow the wreath to dry overnight before hanging.

Tips and warnings

  • If you want to make a wine cork wreath but don't have enough corks, check with craft shops or ask friends or bartenders to save their corks for you until you have enough.
