How to make a Wine Cork Christmas Tree DIY

Start by using the chip brush to add mod podge to the base of the shadow box. Cut the moss to fit the shadow box base.

Begin hot gluing the wine corks together in the shape of a Christmas tree.

Repeat this process with all the wine corks until you have a cute tree.

NEXT…

Cut ribbon to size and hot glue it to the 4 sides of the frame. Choose whatever ribbon you like. You could even paint it if you want, but I love how the words on the ribbon add a little extra detail.

Now, it’s time to secure the tree to the center of the shadow box. Add hot glue directly to the wine cork bottoms and press it into the frame.

PAINTING THE Wine CorkS

Next up, you want to paint the tops of the wine corks whatever color you like. You can paint all of them, or leave some natural, like I did. This is where you can get really creative and have a little fun with it.

You know I love a little bling! This time the bling is in the form of gold metallic. Use your fingertip to add gold to a couple of the corks. Again, this just adds a little extra dimension and detail.

Isn’t it amazing to see how a few wine corks headed for the trash can be turned into a darling Christmas craft? You could go with a larger size frame if you want and hang it on the wall. This little shadow box is the perfect size to stand on a mantel, or buffet.

    What size is the shadow box and where did you get it? ❤️

      The shadow box was one that I already had on hand that I repurposed. I don’t have a source for it. I’m sorry.
      It was about 6″x6″
