Wine Cork Christmas Tree Tutorial

Last weekend we hosted our 6th annual Wine Pairing Party.  I can’t believe we’ve been throwing this party for 6 years, and every year it just gets better and better! 

Invitations by For Your Invitation

The food and wine were amazing, I think the best they’ve ever been, and we all had a lot of laughs.  I thought I’d share a few of the pictures with you, before I show you the tutorial on how to make a wine cork Christmas tree.

I think this quote is hilarious so I had to write it out and display it for the party. 

Matt wore his tux and ended up matching one of the prizes, a tuxedo wine bottle cover. 

Here are all of us lovely ladies.

My friend Erin, and her husband Chris, won the Newly Wed Game so they got to take home the wine cork Christmas tree. 

It was such a fun party, I can’t wait until next year!

 Okay now onto the wine cork Christmas tree tutorial…

When you have a bunch of corks, that you don’t know what to do with, this is an easy craft that also makes for a great gift!

While your glue gun is heating up, start by laying out the bottom layer, to determine how big you want the tree to be.

Once you’ve decided how big you want the base of the tree to be, start gluing the corks together.

Here’s what my bottom layer looked like after it was all glued together.

I wanted the sides of the tree to look nice so I set aside the prettier corks to use as the outside pieces.

I love this one (below): “Joy of Wine”, it also happens to be from one of my favorite wines, the Rombauer Chardonnay.

Once the base layer is built start gluing and stacking the corks, one layer at a time.

The gluing and stacking is a little tedious, but it’s quick and easy, and before you know it your tree will look like this:

I added the little silver pom on top, just for fun.  For the tree trunk I glued 4 corks together vertically, and then glued them to the base layer of the tree.  You could do just one or two corks for the trunk, but I felt like 4 would be more sturdy.

I love all the pretty corks on the side of my tree.  And of course I had to top it with a cork from my in laws winery!

I had a lot of fun making mine and I think it will look great in Chris and Erin’s house!

Have you ever made anything fun with corks?  I’d love to hear about it because I still have a bunch left!
