From Bottle to Wreath – A Wine Cork’s Journey

When you live in wine country utopia, i.e., Paso Robles, CA, you can end up with a lot of gorgeous corks. It is a shame to toss these beauties. So we used them to make a wine cork wreath that we will display all year long.

 Cork WreathHow to: You’ll need about 100 corks and somewhere to drill outside the house because it gets a little messy. Drill a hole in the corks being careful to move the drill bit up and down inside the cork to create a clear channel. Take a heavy wire and thread the corks. You’ll need about 20 corks for each strand and you’ll want to use 4 strands. That makes 80 corks in all, however you’ll need about 100 as you will find some corks don’t accept the drill bit as well as others.

We topped off the wine cork wreath with a paper mâché deer we found locally at one of our fav shops on the main square in Paso Robles, called Firefly Gallery.

Of course the funnest part is working on getting the corks for the next wreath.

Cheers from the prettiest wine region in California and one that has the nicest karma you’ll ever hope to experience!
