I have been wanting to make a wine cork wreath for some time.  I have made a few crafts using corks including trays and cork boards.  Our neighbors had a wine-tasting party this past weekend and I decided this would be a fun hostess gift to bring.  I used the excellent DIY tutorial here.

It took me about 45″ and a LOT of hot melt glue!  My photos aren’t that great because I was making it 45″ before the party started!

I am guessing I used about 80 to 100 corks, about 1/3 of my collection.  (I did not drink all these bottles.  I obtained a bunch from a local wine restaurant.  Those corks are all very similar in design, so I used those for the base and the more unique corks on top.
Our neighbors were thrilled and we had a fantastic time at the party!
