I love a good Christmas wreath, and each year I try to craft a different one from the year before (with a tight budget in mind!). This year, I've been saving my wine corks to tackle this cork wreath from Good Housekeeping
. Adorable, festive and textured, this would look lovely in a modern kitchen or outdoor space. Better yet? It's super easy to make!:
1. Take about 22 corks of the same size and 22 small (3/8 of an inch) red bells bought from a crafts store.
2. Drill a small hole (just big enough to fit your wire through) 1/4 of an inch from the top of each cork and another 1/4 of an inch from the bottom.
Note: It is very important to make sure all the drilled holes at the top line up with the holes at the bottom.
3. Using long, green floral wire, push the wire though all the bottom holes of the corks. Leave enough wire at both ends when finished for tying closed later.
4. Cut another long piece of floral wire to string the tops of the corks together, alternating with the bells.
5. Tie ends of wire at the top and bottom, twisting to close and make a wreath shape. Hang with length of ribbon.
