Mini Cork Christmas Trees

Oh, I did it again... made another Christmas craft! This time I made little tiny Christmas trees :) 


Materials:

- old wine corks
- ribbon
- acrylic paint

Steps:
  1. Paint corks with various tints of red and green Christmas Colours. I just mixed the colours randomly. Some of the old corks had a natural red tinge to them that I kept cause I liked the colours! 
  2. Line up corks and use crazy glue to stick them together. (My glue gun wouldn't stick the plastic corks together) 
  3. Glue sticks to the bottom of the trees. I used corks from other champagne bottles. My husband sanded them down for me so that they would sit straight. 
  4. Add ribbon and any other decals you would like :) 
  5. TA-DA! Beautiful new rustic decorations! 




I put them up on my mantle to stay cause I think they look nice with the greenery behind them. Another successful Christmas craft :)

I love this idea... I will need to save up some corks for next year! What did you use for the base?

Merry Christmas!

I used a captain morgan cork for one tree and a champagne cork for the other ones. You could just use sticks too :) They're fun to make!
