10 Easy Wine Cork Crafts for Christmas


1. Cork Figures

Do you want some reindeers to decorate your mantle? Or perhaps a Santa to sit next to the Christmas tree?

You can make all that and more by just using wine corks, some paint, and craft paper! I’ve personally created the whole nativity scene using this method, and it’s always been a huge hit with my guests.

Now that you have the star, how about a whole tree made out of wine corks? This is a great craft to do with kids, and it’s a perfect way to still get into the Christmas spirit even if you don’t have a lot of space in your home for the actual tree.

Simply glue the corks together in the shape of a tree, and then decorate it however you want!

5. Reindeer

The only reason Santa is able to deliver all those presents on Christmas Eve is because he has his team of reindeers to help him out!

So why not make your own team of reindeers using wine corks? These adorable miniature reindeers are great for perching on top of the mantel or shelf, and they’re sure to bring a smile to everyone’s face.

6. Crochet Trees

If you love crocheting, then you’ll love this Christmas craft! The wine corks form the base for the trees, and then you snugly crochet some green yarn around them for the leaves.

I like to make a bunch of them and then put them in a basket by the front door so guests can grab one as they’re leaving.
