20+ Easy & Creative Wine Cork Crafts for Adults & Children
Personally, I love to indulge in creative DIY projects where you get to work with recycled materials that you have been collecting for quite some time now. Can you really compare anything to that feeling of creating something new and original with your own hands? And all the better if it’s an eco-friendly craft! Today, at Deavita.net, we’ve gathered for you the best wine cork crafts you can find on Instagram, some best suited for adults, other for children. Scroll down to find your inspiration!
Do You Need to Boil Wine Corks for Crafts?
Contrary to some popular beliefs, boiling wine corks can sometimes result in them becoming mushy. Long soaking can have the same outcomes. You can still sterilize your wine corks by simply rinsing them. If the wine corks are heavily stained, a solution of hot water and hydrogen peroxide overnight might do the trick, but be advised that this can still ruin their previous stable state.
Cute Pumpkin Wine Cork Decoration for Fall
If you love fall-inspired decorations, or generally enjoy the look of a cute orange pumpkin decoration, you might get a kick out of this easy wine cork craft! I know fall is far away, but it’s my favorite season and I take delight in anything fall-related, whether it’s a spicy pumpkin lattes or rewatching Gilmore girls until my eyes hurt. Today, I want to share this adorable idea with you, provided by thestudio614.
What you will need:
- At least 20 clean wine corks
- Orange paint & brush
- Decorative rope
- Hot glue gun
- Light & dark green felt
- Pencil (optional)
How to make a DIY pumpkin decoration with wine corks:
Start your craft by gluing the wine corks together with the help of a hot glue gun. A hot glue gun galore is your best option when it comes to cork projects. Compare the pattern of your glued wine corks to that of the picture above to get a pumpkin-resembling shape. Once you have it, paint one or both sides of the corks in orange. Leave the paint to fully dry before proceeding with the craft.
Once the paint has dried, it’s time to create the pumpkin leaves! To make it easier on yourself, you can outline a leaf shape in the light and dark green felt with the help of a pencil before cutting the leaves out with the scissors.
With the hot glue gun, first attach the light green felt leaf to the top of the wine cork pumpkin, then the dark green one over it. Create a pumpkin stem by gluing one wine cork on top of both felt leaves. Finish the craft by attaching the decorative rope like it’s coming from the felt leaves. Now you have a chic DIY pumpkin wine cork decoration! You don’t even have to wait until fall, but can display it now by your window or on your coffee table or desk. Enjoy!
