Something You Can Do With A Gazillion Wine Corks

First I glued the corks to a twiggy wreath from Michael's.
Still a bit boring.










Add some grapes? Dumb looking.














Maybe it is the wrong color.











Nope. Still dumb looking.















How about I wrap a garland around it.





No. Too much plastic vine.


Too much. Too much.


What about this big bushy grape thingy...




No.




Looks Stupid.











What if I cut the bush apart and glue a part of it on.

Leaves are too big or something. I don't know.






OK. Smaller pieces . Smaller bunch of grapes.




It's going to take me years to get all of the glue gun glue strings off of this.











A bit of raffia makes just about everything look better.




On my front door. The E-I-E-I-O Wreath is going on the gate outside.

I did one a while ago. It is on my blog. Yours turned out great. Love it. Love wine. I have so many corks left over I could make a couple more. How sad is that. Lol .

Did you use hot glue? I have bags of corks and I would love to try making one. It's really nice.

Lynn said...

Yes. Hot glue. Every time I walk by it I pick a few glue threads off.

I love this! I've done some cork projects too, but now I want to do this. You have saved me from the trial and error -- big thanks!
