DIY: Cork Tree Ornament

Today’s DIY is a fun one… and absolutely perfect for the holidays!  These little tree ornaments make the best hostess gifts… or just a fun little weekend DIY to help get you into the holiday spirit.  While I was home for the Thanksgiving break, my mom and I took to a huge bag of corks (are we the only family out there that imbibes copious quantities of wine?) and dusted off our glue guns.  We made quite an assortment of these fun little tree ornaments… getting creative and adding buttons, scraps fo fabric, and even rows of beads.

We had all of the materials around our house.  A glue gun, corks, some acrylic paint (though nail polish also looks quite nice!) and some ribbon + bows.

    Very cute! You inspired me to re-start saving all of my wine corks. I’ll definitely have enough to try this next holiday season. – Carla

    These are so cute! I have a little Charlie Brown Christmas tree this year in my apartment and they would be the perfect DIY addition to it :) Have a great weekend, Grace!

    Love this! Would also be cute to get smaller corks to glue at the bottom and then it could be used as a wine topper!
