Use Any Variety Cavit Bottle for this Project

Wine Cork Wreath


210 wine corks
14″ styrofoam wreath
20 mini glue sticks and a mini hot glue gun
7 yards red ribbon for fill ribbon
2 ft glitter ribbon for bow
4 ft brown kraft paper
1 bottle tacky glue
100 satin sewing pins
Chef’s knife
Hot glue gun


  1. Use tacky glue to attach hand torn strips of natural craft paper to the styrofoam wreath base. This is also the best time to attach ribbon or string around the base for hanging. Brown craft paper as a base helps correct mistakes later on and it also covers up the bright white styrofoam.
  2. Cut the base of the cork so that the corks are applied at an angle. You do not need to have a perfect cut. The best knife for cutting corks is a straight chef’s knife and not a serated blade.
  3. Take the angle cut corks and hot glue them around the middle spine of the wreath. After gluing the spine, hot glue corks row-by-row pulling off misplaced ones and regluing them as needed. Hot glue is necessary as it makes the project go faster and easier.
  4. Red ribbon is pinned and hot-glued around in semi-random spots. It’s helpful to use ribbon to cover up any large holes that reveal the kraft paper underneath. The wreath will use a lot of ribbon, expect to use at least 7 yards to acheive the look. The final addition of the glitter ribbon bow helps add a point of interest.
