What you’ll need:

14-inch straw wreath form

Plastic twine

Approx. 8-inch length wire for hanger

Serrated knife or other cutting tool

Hammer and small nail (to put a hole through the cork)

Needle-nose pliers

Floral pearl pins

Glue gun

Glue sticks

Beads, ribbon and other embellishments as desired

 

How you’ll do it:

1. Shape a loop out of the wire to make a hanger about 4 inches long.

2. Use plastic twine to attach the hanger to the back of the wreath, looping the twine around the wreath to secure the hanger. Add glue to create a tight hold.

3. With a serrated knife or other cutting tool, cut corks in half.

4. Hammer a nail all the way through each cork half from top to bottom to create a hole. Pull out the nail with needle-nose pliers.

5. For each cork half, put a bead or two through a floral pearl pin and push the pin through the hole in the cork.

6. Using a glue gun, glue the pin and bottom of each cork into the straw wreath. Place cork pieces as close to each other as possible until the front, outer and inner sides of the wreath are covered.

7. Glue on any other embellishments, like artificial berries, leaves, etc.

8. Tie on a ribbon and bow to finish the wreath.
