How To Make A Cork Wreath

How To Make A Cork Wreath Video Tutorial from Nikki McGonigal on Vimeo.

This project was originally intended to be my first project for the upcoming 2010 holiday season, but I fell in love with it, and can’t wait til fall to show it off.  My wreath already has a permanent home in my living room!

I’d also love everyone’s feedback on my video.  This was my first go-around with some new software, and I’d love to know what everyone thinks!

    What kind of hot glue did you use for the corks? Low temp or high temp? Thanks.

    • Nikki, In Stitches says:

      I’m looking at the glue stick package right now, and it actually reads “Multi-Temp”, which I actually did not notice when I bought them, and probably would not have selected them for this project! 😉
      The glue gun I used was a high temp, though.
      I hope this helps!

    Thanks so much for the info… I want to make some cork coasters, but couldn’t figure out what kind of glue to use… all of the cork projects I found just said “hot glue”…

    Guess I know what I’ll be doing this weekend!

    I have bags and jars of corks and have been looking for a project…approx. how many corks were used?

      Thanks so much for stopping by my blog!
      I don’t have an exact answer to your question, other than A LOT!!!
      I’m guessing about 400!
      I know, that’s a lot. I actually had quite a collection, but had to supplement by finding some on If you can’t find any there, try asking a local wine bar to save them for you!
      Good luck and send us pics of your finished wreath!
      Thanks again!
