Note: For this one I used craft glue to glue the corks, but you can also use hot-glue. It’s pretty interchangeable with the corks.

All of the corks used were natural corks, not synthetic.

Wine Cork Tree Step by Step Tutorial:

Cover a flat surface with wax paper. Line up your corks to create a tree shape. Add additional corks for the trunk. You want to do this before gluing to make sure the tree is flat on one side before you glue it.

Glue the corks by adding a line of glue to the cork and attaching it to the one next to it.

Putting together 1 row of 2 corks, 1 row of 3 corks, 1 row of 4 corks, etc. Once the rows are together, Add glue in a zig zag pattern to the row and attach the rows together. Finish by attaching the stem to the tree.
