Make It Pretty Wednesdays: Cork Christmas Trees!

I have been collecting corks for a LONG time. Almost a decade now… so it won’t surprise you when you see this, right?

I love doing crafts, but I haven’t seen a lot of “cork crafts” that have appealed to me. Until… I saw these adorable little Christmas trees on Pinterest:

I just had to make my own! So I gathered up my supplies and got my glue gun:

  • Corks
  • Ink Pads in Reds, Greens and Browns
  • Glitter Glue
  • Foam Glitter Stars
  • Hot Glue Gun
    1. Color some of your corks by rubbing the ends on the red, green and brown ink pads.

    1. Attach a row of corks using glue gun. This will be the base of your Christmas tree. I did a random pattern, but you can do anything you would like!

    1. Continue adding corks, going in a triangular pattern.

  1. Add brown colored corks in a tree trunk fashion on the bottom, a glitter foam star or a ribbon on the top and maybe some glitter on a few of the corks for a little bling!

  1. Cute project. I would have to run out and buy corks to do this at the hardware store. Good thing I’m on my way there next.

  2. I *knew* I was saving all those corks for a good reason! ;) Looks like we have a project to make. So cute – and it looks like an easy one to get the kids involved. Pinned it!
