Wine Cork Wreath

Here's a really neat wreath and a GREAT way to recycle all those old wine corks.  Don't worry, if you don't drink enough wine to save enough corks, a quick search on Ebay and you can buy boxes of corks for relatively cheap.  That's what I did!

Here is what you need....
Wine corks
Styrofoam wreath
Hot glue gun

I started on the outside edge by hot gluing corks all the way around. I use wax paper under anything I glue, so there is no chance of gluing it to the table.

Next, I added a second and third row to the outside and then did the same on the inside.

Then I just filled in the middle arranging the corks as I went.  If you need to, you can cut a cork in half to make the circle around complete.

That's it, pretty simple and quick to  make!  I chose not to add a bow or any ribbon, I liked the simplicity of just the corks.
