Last year I was searching the internet for fun projects to do with wine corks and came across this cute idea from an online store.  Of course, I decided, ‘I can do that!” So today I am sharing with you my Wine Cork Christmas Tree Craft.

The first thing you will need to do is either drink 26 bottles of wine, or order yourself some wine corks online.  I am sure if you do a google search you will be able to find a few of these.  Of course, ordering them will not be as much fun, but it may also take you quite some time to go through 26 bottles of wine!

Needless to say, I went through 26 bottles of wine….but not too quickly!  I have been saving up wine corks for years and have been wanting to do something fun with them.  With Christmas right around the corner, I thought this would be the perfect little crafting project.

Wine Corks for Christmas Tree Crafts

Wine Cork Christmas Tree Craft

  • 26 wine corks (makes two trees)
  • hot glue gun
  • mod podge
  • glitter
  • one empty toilet paper roll
  • twine

Step 1:  The first thing you want to do to make these wine cork Christmas Trees is wet the tip of the cork with a little dab of mod podge and then dip them in your glitter of choice. Allow these to dry for a few hours.

Step 2: Once your glitter is dry, place your wine corks together and start making your trees.  I stacked them up like this:

  • 3 corks for the bottom row (hot glue together)
  • 4 corks for the next row (hot glue together)
  • 3 corks (hot glue together)
  • 2 corks (hot glue together)
  • 1 cork (hot glue together)

Step 3: Take the toilet paper roll and cut off about a 2 inch high piece.  Take your hot glue and wrap your twine around the roll until it is completely covered. Using your hot glue, attach the twine covered roll to the base of your tree.

Step 4: Once you have attached the roll and corks, decorate with ribbon and paper to top it off, or to keep things simple like I did, add a little button to the top.

These are such cute little Christmas trees, and such a fun and easy project to make.

    OK, so I’m not even going to admit how many wine corks I have saved because I always felt like I should be doing something with them, but I was never exactly sure what. Now, I have a plan, because these are adorable!

      Thanks so much! I had fun making them…and I still have some corks left over, I need to make something else!

      Awesome! I promise it’s easy to make. I have a few other ideas for wine cork crafts, but I haven’t thought about a wine cork candle..that’s a super cool idea!

    These are going to be my placecards for Christmas dinner. I might even rearrange the corks, use different colors and make turkeys for Thanksgiving. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Another great place to get wine corks for FREE is a tasting room or winery. Here in Southern California we have a ton of both and they are always glad to hand them over.
