“If anyone asks, I’m drinking all this wine to collect corks for a project I saw on Pinterest.”
See, we knew you were saving up wine corks to make this fun project…..
WINE CORK PINE CONE ORNAMENT
Today, we are again joining some blogging friends for a monthly crafty de-stash, hosted by C’mon Get Crafty. Basically, we are trying to use up all those supplies we tend to
hoard…collect. It’s a use what you got challenge, and we love it! #CraftRoomDestashChallenge

- PINE CONE BASE SHAPE The one here was an actual pine cone base, but The Mister thought a dollar store foam football might work. A foam cut Christmas tree could also be a possibility. Basically, use what you got… that could form that shape.
- Since this is a pine cone base, it needed to be covered with packing paper so the wine corks could be glued on.
- Glue Gun/Glue
- HIGHLY RECOMMEND – Finger Tip Protectors!!!!!!!!!
- Ribbon, two were used here, buffalo check– leftover from this project, and the green was from the packaging on some sheets.
- Wine Corks, depends on how large you make your pine cone so have another glass 🙂
- Serrated Knife or Small Saw, I would recommend a small tooth serrated knife like this. The larger the tooth on the knife, the more chance for crumbs when cutting your corks.
- Using a serrated knife, cut the wine corks to your desired thickness. These were done approximately 1/8 to a 1/4 inch.
- Take your base, and cover/glue, it if necessary. And yes, the irony is not lost on us that we are using a pine cone to make a pine cone.
- Starting at the bottom, start gluing your cork disks in a layering fashion. Think roofing. AND SERIOUSLY, I can’t even recommend the finger tip protectors enough. Your fingers will thank you…and so will the rest of the house as you won’t be yelling at getting burned every few seconds from applying each disk.
- After you have worked your way up to the top, make a ribbon hanger. Fold the ribbon in half and glue/pin it to the top.
- Finally, add any additional greenery and ribbon to the front.
