While browsing around on Pinterest today I came across this pin and tutorial for a wine cork Christmas tree from the Vintage News Junkie blog. Since it seemed easy and fast - not to mention the fact that my wine corks are piling up - I decided to jump on it. A couple notes: I did like using the red-stained sides of the corks (particularly since only one of my corks had a design on the end of it to add interest) to hint of ornaments or lights and I also chose to set the "trunk" back a wee bit to mimic a real tree.
So I grabbed some corks, fired up the glue gun...
did a bit of sorting and planning...
and within 5 minutes, I had diminished the cork stash and wound up with
a fast, free and rustic-y looking little Christmas decoration.
Like, like and like!
Thanks Vintage News Junkie!
