Create simple Valentine or anniversary decor with upcycled wine corks. Wine Cork Valentine Heart Decor.
It is no secret that I enjoy upcycling, especially with wine corks. However, as much as I like creating with wine corks I am not much of a wine drinker. Fortunately for me, I happen to know a few wine connoisseurs who are kind enough to save their wine corks for me.
Wine Cork Valentine Heart Decor
- Wine Corks (approximately 28)
- Craft Paint
- Hot Glue Gun
- Wide Ribbon
- Free Printable Heart Pattern
Begin by printing my free printable Heart Pattern. Place the pattern on a hard surface then stand the wine corks on the heart shape paper pattern. The number of wine corks needed will change based on their placement whether you are standing them inside, outside or on the outline. (I used 28 wine corks for my wine cork Valentine heart decor.)
Next, paint the ends of wine corks your desired color then allow them to dry completely. (A quick and easy way to apply the paint to the wine corks is to dip them; see this post.)
Next use hot glue to attach the 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.
After the hot glue has dried place a ribbon through the inside of the open heart. Finally, hang your Wine Cork Valentine Heart Decor or share a little love by giving this festive decor to someone special.
