Cork Preview

29 Sep

So I’ve been looking up fun things to do with corks and got a start on them yesterday. Thought I’d share them with you today 🙂

A cork wreath! I still haven’t mastered how I’m going to finish this but it was fun to finally get started on it 🙂 Brian thinks I should color or spray paint the corks when I’m done to give it a little color boost – he thinks the cork color is boring. I could definitely see these being cute if they were green and red or maybe even blue just for kicks and giggles.

 

This is a cork Christmas tree ornament 🙂 This too is going to get some color to spice it up a little!!

 

I really liked how this one turned out so I might be making a few more! What do you think?

 

I have a list of other cute ideas I’d love to try and since I have a ridiculous amount of corks – this could get interesting 😉

Thanks for stopping by!
Love Always,

J

    Super fun! I love the idea of re-purposing corks. Just remember, if you spray paint it and that paint gets on the styrofoam, it will eat right through it! Styrofoam and spray paint don’t mix!

    You could also leave the cork as it is and spruce it up with colorful fabric/paper/felt flowers… Can’t wait to see the finished product 😉
