Combine your love for wine and the holidays with this festive DIY wine cork Christmas tree.   

The holiday season is well underway and with all the celebrating that takes place this time of the year it always seems to lead to an excess of leftover wine corks from all the fun. If you’re like me and are looking for a fun DIY project that will put those extra corks you’ve been saving to good use then this festive creation is just for you! This simple, fun and decorative DIY wine cork Christmas tree requires just a touch of crafting skills, but a whole lot of holiday spirit.  

How to Create a Wine Cork Christmas Tree

Supplies: 

  • ~ 150+ wine corks  
  • 2 paper mâché open bottom cones in varying sizes: 
    •     10.63”x 4”  
    •     13.75” x 5"  
  • Hot glue gun + extra glue sticks  
  • Battery operated string lights  
  • Holiday thin ribbon  
  • Bow tree topper  

Directions: 

1. Start with the largest cone. Start hot gluing corks to the cone in a symmetrical vertical pattern with a little bit of space between each cork. Be sure to not let any of the corks extend past the bottom, as this will be the base of your wine cork Christmas tree.  

2. Next, do the same thing with the medium size cone. Here you don’t have to worry about corks extending past the bottom edge as this will overhang on top of the larger base cone.   

3. Place the medium size cone on top of the larger cone and apply hot glue to secure. This should create a two-tier Christmas tree shape.   

4.  Before you place a second layer of corks on, start to weave the battery-operated lights into and around the spaces between the corks. Start from the bottom where you will place the battery pack to be hidden underneath and work your way up.   

5. Add another layer of corks using hot glue but be sure to not cover up too much of the string lights. Depending on your style, you can start to place corks in random directions or keep a symmetrical look. Start to create a peak at the top where you will add a single cork standing vertical. Depending on how you’d like your tree to look, you can continue to add additional layers at the bottom of the tree to give it a “fuller” look. The cork tree we did here has about 4-5 layers of cork along the bottom rows and narrows as you go up.   

Attach a tree topper of choosing. We used a decorative holiday bow and secured it with the wire provided, but you could easily hot glue it.  

6. Lastly, using the thin holiday ribbon, wrap a decorative element around the cork tree starting at the bottom. Secure with hot glue occasionally as you wrap towards the top.  

7. Turn on the lights and marvel at your wine cork Christmas tree creation!  

I’ve realized over the years that most of my favorite holiday decor is often times a handcrafted creation. This DIY wine cork Christmas tree makes for a festive centerpiece for your holiday dinner table. To recreate your own, grab all your used and leftover corks from your favorite wines, pop open a fresh bottle of my favorite Kendall-Jackson Grand Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, kick up the holiday tunes and get to work! Depending on how large you want to create your wine cork tree, this project should take anywhere from 1-2 hours. Enjoy these few hours of crafting and treasure the joy of the holiday season.

Where to put wine corks? In new masterpieces for interior decoration!

Wine corks are the most valuable material for making decor and useful gizmos for home and garden. From these seemingly useless waste, you can create anything - from useless miniature souvenirs to full-fledged furniture. Inspired by the ideas, most likely you will want to build crafts from wine corks with your own hands, and then one question will arise - where to get the corks? It is unlikely that you will be able to accumulate them on your own; you will have to find friends working in cafes and restaurants.

Useful little things for the home

Wooden cork is made from a unique cork tree - it is not afraid of moisture, resistant to mold and decay. Crafts from corks will serve for a long time, wherever you find a use for them - in the living room, in the kitchen, on the balcony, in the bathroom, in the country yard or in the garden. Additional processing of the cork tree is not required, but if desired, it can be varnished or painted in the desired shade.

If there are very few corks, then pre-cut the existing raw material into circles of the same width. From such circles you get an original stand for a hot cup or plate. The elements can be glued together tightly to each other, fastened with a stapler or stitched in a checkerboard pattern with a fishing line. In the first case, a solid product will be obtained, and in the second, a flexible stand.

The thickness of the stand is easy to vary, but if you lay the corks horizontally, you get a completely different masterpiece. Such crafts from champagne corks with your own hands can be made not only for yourself, but also as a gift.

Using a wooden board as a base, it is easy to make a handy holder for keys or jewelry. Attaching plugs is simple with screws. To maintain a single style, it is recommended to glue the board with cork wallpaper.

A little more imagination and unnecessary wine corks turn into stylish candlesticks for decorating candles, photo frames, and bread baskets.

Bath mat or curtain - fashionable creativity

To make this practical craft from wine corks with your own hands, both whole parts and halves are suitable. The mat can be solid or with holes. Corks are connected with a fishing line or glued to a rubber base. It all depends on the number of parts and your own preferences.

Wine cork curtains look spectacular in any interior, and if you do not want to decorate your apartment with them, hang them on the balcony or in the country house. To make this is as easy as shelling pears - the design is assembled on a fishing line, like ordinary beads, or with the help of metal fasteners.

If ​​there is nothing to do - funny souvenirs

Looking at funny photos of cork crafts, it's impossible not to smile. Such trinkets are easy to make on a free evening or weekend. The main thing is that fun crafts do not need a lot of details, and some masterpieces generally consist of one element, which is easy to get after a romantic evening.

If you enjoy making crafts out of wine corks, maybe you can come up with something of your own, such as a luxurious chandelier or floor lamp, an eco-friendly necklace or a coffee table in bed.

Use of bottle caps at home

When there are enough bottle caps of any kind and there are no longer enough storage containers, you can think about what to make useful and interesting from corks so that the collection does not turn into simple accumulation. There are many ways to use wine corks at home.

Wine corks - from rug to finish

Cork products can be the first thing that meets us at the entrance to a house or apartment. For example, an easy-to-make wine cork rug.

The same rug is appropriate in the bathroom - it sets the mood and is pleasant for the feet.

  • cork vase

  • fruit bowl

  • bottle holder

  • flower pot

  • decorative ball

Stylish things, fashion accessories and jewelry

The fashion industry has also taken notice of cork. Cork dresses, suits, hats and even mannequins that look like sculptures - all this product of the wild imagination of designers is not so common in everyday life.

It is much more affordable to make small decorations from wine corks with the addition of accessories. Necklaces and brooches, rings and earrings, pendants and beads - there is no limit to the flight of fantasy for the realization of ideas!

A cork wall display can be made to display and store this handmade beauty and other decorations.

Handbags and baskets made entirely or partially with corks look stylish.

Champagne corks: a hanger, a handle, and a fishing rod with a float

Champagne corks do not fill up as quickly as wine corks, but they will also be successfully used. Like a theater, an apartment starts with a hanger - this is one of the simple devices that you can start by making from champagne corks.

Thanks to their unique shape, they make comfortable and pleasant to the touch handles for furniture drawers and doors.

If you cut off the rounded parts of the corks and assemble them in clusters on a wire, you will get an original installation in the form of a vine with grapes.

And if you connect these pieces in the same plane, a reliable heat-resistant hot pad will be ready for use.

For fishing enthusiasts, cork is a well-known material that is used to make almost all parts of the fishing rod - it turns out a comfortable handle and a reliable float. It is important to use such a home-made device in winter: cork material does not cool the hand upon contact.

Crafts from champagne corks are not limited to this: even metal fastening wires are used - craftsmen twist elegant toys out of them.

Crafts from corks in the garden

If you have a country house with a garden, corks can be used here as well. For starters, the easiest way is to make markers for plants in beds and flower beds.

If desired, it is not difficult to assemble a cork planter for garden plants.

And if you put more effort and time, you will get warm and cozy bird houses.

Lightweight and weather-resistant garden furniture made from this eco-friendly material blends harmoniously with garden design.

Cork ideas for special occasions

You can achieve such mastery in working with cork that you are not ashamed to make and give gifts from it to your friends and acquaintances. Such a cork gift carries the warmth of the material and the hands of the creator. All kinds of cork gifts, toys and holiday crafts will be appropriate for any occasion:

  • funny figurines

  • wine cork wreath or Christmas wreath

  • Christmas trees, Christmas decorations and toys

  • caskets

In addition to crafts, there are no less interesting ideas from wine corks. For example, use in cooking: restaurateurs advise adding a few corks from white wine when cooking seafood - it is believed that this technique fills the finished product with a pleasant aroma.

Someone might like the idea of ​​using corks as a material for lighting a fireplace or fire - for this they are pre-soaked in alcohol.

Plastic and metal closures - let your imagination run wild

If you have a collection of plastic or metal closures, then there are all kinds of original uses for them. As in the case of cork stoppers, craftsmen create almost everything from caps, and even more: they lay out walls and floors, make toys and interior items.

Metal lids can decorate the kitchen table and create an apron over the cooking area. Bright and durable interior items will cheer you up and last for decades.

Impressive is the grandiose creation of a resident of one of the Russian villages, who laid out the walls of the house with multi-colored covers, like a mosaic.
