Cheers everyone! Happy October to you all! My name is Jenny and I am happy to share with you fun DIY project using wine corks! One of my girlfriends loves to entertain. She often hosts dinner parties, Bunco nights and Book Club meetings. While at her house, I noticed she had a collection of wine bottle corks which she kept in a large glass vase. Each time she shares a bottle of wine with friends in her home, she saves the wine corks. She said she likes to save them because they remind her of the good times she has shared with family and friends! I thought this was a neat idea so I began to save some corks too!

Let’s Make a Pumpkin Decoration with Wine Corks:

Step one: Using the hot glue gun, glue together the corks until you have each row completed. You can make the rows as long or as short as you want. It just depends on what size pumpkin you would like!

Step Four: Top off the pumpkin with a wine cork stem! I used an artificial leaf and some craft paper crinkle under the stem to add to the decoration. I took a picture of the finished pumpkin with unpainted corks and painted corks. I think it looks great either way!
