It is no secret that I enjoy upcycling. I love taking something that is viewed no longer useful and finding a way to recycle it. I especially like upcycling with wine corks. Interestingly enough, I do not drink wine.
That’s right. No wine for me. Fortunately, I happen to know a few wine connoisseurs who are kind enough to save their wine corks for me so that I can continue to make my wine cork creations like this Wine Cork Valentine Heart Decor.
To create a Wine Cork Valentine Heart Decor you will need:
28 Wine Corks (approximate number)
Hot Glue Gun
Printable Heart Pattern
Begin by printing my free printable Heart Pattern. Stand Wine Corks on the paper pattern in the heart shape. The placement of the standing corks whether inside, outside or on the line could change the number of wine corks needed to create your own upcycled Wine Cork Valentine Heart Decor. (I used 28 wine corks for mine.)
Paint the ends of Wine Corks the desired color, allow time for the painted ends to dry. See my Wine Cork Pumpkin Decor post for an quick and simple way to stamp/paint the ends of the wine corks.
Glue the painted Wine Corks together; the pattern makes a great guide while gluing. I added glue and placed each wine cork on the pattern to ensure my heart still looked like a heart upon completion.
Place a ribbon through the inside of the open heart, then hang your Wine Cork Valentine Heart Decor to add a little love to your home or share a little love by giving this festive decor to someone special.
