Total Time: 30 minutes

All you need is some paint, hot glue, felt and a little twine to recycle some old wine corks into a cute wine cork pumpkin to decorate your table.

Materials

  • 25 recycled wine corks
  • Orange acrylic paint
  • Green felt
  • Jute twine

Tools

  • Paintbrush
  • Hot glue gun
  • Craft knife
  • Scissors

Instructions

  1. Dilute the paint with a bit of water and paint both ends of all but one cork. Set aside to dry.
  2. Arrange the corks in rows (4 on the bottom, then 5, then 6, then 5 and 4 on the top row) and hot glue them together. For best results, try to match up the corks so they're the same length in each row.
  3. Take the one remaining cork and cut off part of it with the craft knife. Hot glue it on top as the stem.
  4. Cut leaf shapes from the green felt and hot glue them on around the “stem.”
  5. Tie a short length of twine around the stem to resemble the vine.
