Happy fall! I love bringing warm colors into my home and decorating for the fall this time of year. And I love decorating with pumpkins because they last from the fall until Thanksgiving. I don’t drink wine but crafting with wine corks can be so much fun! So today I am sharing a really fun and simple way to create a wine cork DIY pumpkin decor piece! Read on to see how…
Supplies needed to make your own cork DIY pumpkin:
- 1 1/4″ Corks, #10 (7 packs)
- Orange and Brown Craft Paint
- Leaf Punch
- Green Cardstock
- Hot Glue Gun
- Foam Paint Brush
First you will begin by hot gluing your corks together in a pumpkin shape. I used 4 corks on bottom, then 5 corks, then 6 in the middle. 5 corks above that and then 4 on the top. I added a cork on the top to be the pumpkin stem.
Next I painted the tops of the corks orange and the stem brown. One coat of paint was enough for the look I wanted, but feel free to do two if you prefer.
Because the corks have a natural curve to them, the DIY pumpkin didn’t want to stand up on its own. So I glued two corks to the back of the pumpkin to act as a stable base for it.
