♫ On the sixth day of Christmas, my true love made for me… Cork DIY’in (think six geese ‘a layin’) ♫
♫ Burlap I Love ♫
♫ And an Upcycled Tree that’s Sparkly ♫
I mean, six geese a layin’…. cork DIY’in… they sounds the same, right?? I have a feeling the second half of the song is gonna be tougher than the first half! I’m gonna have to get creative. Good thing I’ve got creativity running through my bones!! Now for our 6th DIY Christmas Tree! Can you believe we are half way through the fun??
This project was so easy.. it really doesn’t warrant a tutorial. I gather that you can look at the pictures and figure it out, but I do have a few tips! I started with some hot glue and one wine cork.
Attach two corks to start forming your tree. If you have corks from red wine, make sure that you put the red ends of the corks on the same side. That way the front of your tree will all be the same color.
One wine cork on the top… and we are well on our way!
And you just build from there…
You’ll notice this is the back of my tree and you can see all of the red stains. Also, the back is all different heights. Chances are, your wine corks will be all different sizes. If you level them out on the front, they will be even. I just pressed them against the table to make it flat on the front.
Three corks stacked a couple rows high makes my tree trunk.
And that’s it!!
