Making a Small Christmas Tree from Wine Corks and Some Pebbles

Yeah, Christmas is around the corner and I am starting to decorate! 😍😍😍 As I am all about crafts and recycling today I made a small Christmas Tree from Wine Corks! πŸŽ„πŸ’š

This project is very easy and fun! All you need is some corks (at least 20 but the more the merrier 😜) a glue gun and some pebbles or beads and bows to decorate your tree! πŸŽ„πŸ’«πŸ’—

Start from the top and keep gluing your corks in a pyramid shape! πŸ”Ί It doesn’t have to be perfectly smooth, as Christmas tree is irregular πŸŽ„, but it is goodΒ  to remember to keep the layers of similar heights, especially on the bottom (in order not to have a leaning tower of Pisa kind of tree).. πŸ˜‰

This is how high my tree turned out, but one can go as high and wide, as one pleases!  I ran out of corks so my tree had to stop here! 😜

As a next step I pulled out some decorations! It is important to choose a color or two for the tree decorations and stick with it. I decided on red and silver-white! I made some red ribbon bows, twisted red and white pipe-cleaners for candy-canes and pulled out red and white glass pebbles! πŸ’₯🎊

I first decided to work from the top layer and glued the two red bows first, then layer by layer I added red pebbles and then white ones in between.. 😍😍😍

I decided to work from the top towards the bottom πŸŽ„ gluing the two red bows on the top layer first πŸŽ€πŸŽ€ then adding all the red pebbles πŸ”΄πŸ”΄πŸ”΄ and then the white ones βšͺβšͺβšͺβšͺ and sugar-canes in between! 😍😍😍

And yes, one should not forget the top πŸ’₯ I choose a shining star and a sparkling ball for my tree! πŸŽ„ I added some fake snow and cute animals around my tree that now decorates my room! 😍😍😍 Hope you enjoyed this project and would love to see how yours turn out! Have fun and Happy Holidays, boys and girls! πŸ˜˜πŸ˜™
