wine cork heart for decorations
Remember the cute cork heart that I showed you a couple of weeks ago? I finally broke out my stash of corks and my brand new heavy-duty glue gun and created one of my own! I love corks (I dream about having cork flooring some day – so pretty and cushy and green!), and there’s seriously something therepeutic about gluing lots and lots of small objects together to create something bigger and better. I picked up all of my corks at Goodwill a couple of years ago – two gallon sized bags for $.99! It may have taken me awhile, but I knew there was a crafty future for those little guys someday!

 Now this cute cork heart has a home on my kitchen wall next to the pantry, right next to my ugly etched glass wheat motif pantry doors. Totally glad to be able to draw some attention away from that design atrocity 😉

Note to self: Fix one of the ribbons so that they’re symmetrical…that’s going to drive me nuts!

  1. What do you use as a backing to glue the corks onto? I’m thinking that it would have to be something sturdy.

    1. I didn’t actually use any backing piece, I just glued all of the corks together. The corks aren’t very heavy, though, so you could probably use a sheet of thick cardstock or foam core as a backing if you wanted!

  2. Love the cork hearts great idea, probably a silly question but how do your keep the shape as it got bigger? are they just hot glue gunned together? xxxxThank you xx

    1. They’re just hot glued together – no backing or anything holding it all together. I glued at every point where the cork touches another cork. It’s surprisingly sturdy!

  3. What did you use to attach the ribbon. I made a heart for my front door, and now I am trying to get ideas on how to hang it.

    1. Hi Portia! I used hot glue to attach a ribbon loop to the back of my cork heart to hang it, but you could also attach the ribbon with a straight pin – just stick it through the ribbon and straight into the cork! 🙂

  4. I have saved enough corks to make this , any other ideas for different shapes, maybe a shamrock?? Love your idea. e

    1. I have seen some fantastic monograms made out of corks…that’s what I’m saving mine up for now! 🙂

  5. adorable! i wish i drank enough wine to make one of these. guess i will have to make others save their corks for me:)
