I’ve been wanting to make fun things out of these corks for a while but never got around to it, I was always too busy. But the corks were finally starting to get close to overflowing so I had to do something about it.

I know it looks like a lot of corks but I have been collecting these for a decade. It’s not as bad as all that if you spread it out over 10 years, right?

Clearly Mark West & Block Nine are a favorite choice for me... Because they are inexpensive yet still yummy!

Like with any good arts and crafts project, this really just takes patience, a hot glue gun and glue.

A lot of glue.

I was feeling in the season so I decided to make a Christmas wreath out of the corks. There’s really no right or wrong way to do it. Here’s the way I made my wreath but if you happen to have a big vase full of corks, just grab a glue gun and start gluing away!
