Christmas Crafting: Part 3

If you are anything like me you save all sorts of things in hope to use them in a future craft. Case in point why I have 2 vases filled with corks. It was time to use some of them up. One Pinterest search later and another Christmas themed cork craft was born.

Cork Wreath Ornaments

Materials: corks, floral wire, plastic beads, ribbon, hot glue gun, steamer, knife, scissors

 1) Place your corks in a steamer for approximately 7 minutes. This will make the corks less dense and easier to cut. 

2) Use the knife to cut the corks widthwise into thin discs. I cut 15 discs per wreath. 

3) Use your scissors to poke a hole through the middle of the cork disc. Push the floral wire through the hole. Begin a pattern of stringing cork discs and beads until there are 15 discs and 15 beads on the wire. 

4) Bend the wire until a circle is formed. Twist the wire to secure the discs and beads. Create a loop and twist the extra wire to secure.

5) Make a bow with your ribbon and hot glue it to the wreath.  

 Enjoy your new ornament! 🎄
