Make Christmas decorations using corks!

Make Christmas decorations using corks!

Between advent calendars, hanging ornaments and fairy lights, when the holidays grow near, it is a perfect time for the young and old to make crafts. And they are even better if you can upcycle everyday things! So, how do you decorate your home while staying safely home? Try making a Christmas tree and a wreath using corks!


For the Christmas tree, you will need:

  • Corks
  • A glue gun
  • Ink or paint in the colour of your choice
  • Glue
  • Glitter
  • A string of fairy lights

Step 1: Draw a tree shape on some paper and place the corks next to each other to form your tree. About one hundred corks will make a tree 35 cm tall.


Step 2: Select a few corks. Dip some of them in ink or paint and some of them in glue and glitter.


Step 3: Using a glue gun, assemble the corks.


Step 4: Place the fairy lights behind your tree and poke the lightbulbs through the gaps.


For the wreath, you will need:

  • Corks
  • Double-side adhesive tape or glue
  • A glue gun
  • Glitter in the colour of your choice
  • Fir branches
  • Christmas decorations: fabric bows, ball ornaments, pine cones, etc.

Step 1: Cover some corks with tape or dip them in glue, then roll them in the glitter.


Step 2: Create a circle with the corks and assemble them using the glue gun.
