Specifically, wine corks.
And I don't drink.
But that wasn't going to stop me from the brilliance that came to me in my dreams....
So I begged all my Facebook friends to contribute their unused corks to my cause.
And I got just enough to complete this project.
One Cardboard ring.
Any old cardboard will do.
I cut this one out of a Thirty-one box.
One Glue gun.
About 25 glue sticks.
And about 300 corks.
Start by gluing the corks onto the cardboard.
Pattern doesn't really matter at this point.
You are just trying to build a base.
Once you have the cardboard mostly covered, you can start layering.
I pretty much stacked, layered, and glued my finger tips off.
I wanted them to look haphazard.
Then I just glued a ribbon around it.
And hung it.
I LOVE it.
I love how every cork has a different design.
And for the record, since I have about 13 wreaths in every room of my house, I eventually removed the ribbon and I am now using this as a centerpiece around a candle on my dining room table.
I absolutely LOVE it.
Now if only I had more corks for the other cork inspired projects I dreamed up that night!
I am linking this project to Beth's Tuesday Tutorial Series.
As well as Amanda's Weekend Bloggy Reading party!
Happy Crafting, ya'll!
