Happy Day Two of the fabulous Christmas Spectacular. How about a super simple craft that takes less than 10 minutes — and you most likely have the supplies already on hand!?! Sounds pretty appealing, right? Well, these Simple Wine Cork Trees are the perfect holiday craft for kids of all ages and they have great versatility! Whether it’s for a holiday diner favor or a sweet addition to your holiday decor — these cute DIY trees are easy to whip up!
Supplies for DIY Wine Cork Trees:
Craft Glue (Optional)
Pine Branches from Garland (or real tree branches)
Wire Cutters or Sharp Knife for branches
Drill (or something to make small holes)
Cut strands of greenery off of garland or branch. I always have extra greenery lying around for decorating and crafting, so I snipped a few ends off of a strand of garland I had on hand.
Prepare the corks. You can use the corks as is, or if you want them a little shorter or varying in height, cut the corks in half with a sharp knife. If there isn’t a hole in the corks from the cork screw used in removing it from the bottle, use a drill or screw to make a small hole for the greenery.
Once your stems are cut and your corks are ready, you’re ready to assemble the small cork trees. Use a dot of glue to keep the stem in place (optional). That’s it!
If the tree doesn’t have the shape you were hoping for, use your scissors to shape it a bit more! Haha! Funny to think about about shaping a miniature cork tree, huh?
Regardless, they are so sweet — and versatile! Use as a dinner favor during your holiday entertaining…
Or place in a hurricane with some faux snow!
There you go! A simple (and inexpensive) holiday craft.
You could even tie on some gold thread and you now have
an ornament or gift embellishment! Boom.
I think they’re adorable and hope you can say the same.
Here’s to spreading a little extra merry!
