I LOVE fall! I love the smells of fall, and decorating for fall and the colors of all. But all out decorating can get expensive if you are buying everything. That is why I love some DIY and easy crafts. Tie in that wine cork projects and wine cork crafts seem to be ‘in' right now, and this easy wine cork pumpkin craft became a great fit in my fall decor collection!
Wine Cork Projects – Easy Wine Cork Pumpkin Craft
Now when I made wine cork heart craft, I had some corks left over. Ok, let's not lie I bought a bulk order of corks from Amazon and had a bunch left over. So I found quite a few ideas for them. With my love for fall, this wine cork pumpkin craft was well worth it.I can put it up in September with my fall decor and it works for Halloween and Thanksgiving too, so it's multi-use!
Wine cork projects are pretty easy and great one to allow kids to help with; you just need to control the glue gun. Just trust me on that one!
Ok so here is what you need to do this easy wine cork pumpkin craft.
The first part of this the kids can do because it's ok if they aren't perfect. Let the kids do the dipping and painting.
1. Squirt a small amount of orange paint onto a paper plate and place a newspaper/paper down before you craft
2. Dip the ends of 24 corks into your paint and dab the excess paint off onto a piece of paper and let your corks dry
Next, let the kids help hand you corks and you glue them together in the pattern to make the pumpkin.
3. Hot glue four corks together with the orange ends facing the same direction
Next, let the kids pick the type of leafs you will use to the top of the pumpkin.
6. Cut our two leaves from your green felt (they don't have to be anything special)
8. Now wrap a couple of pieces of hemp twine around the top cork
That's it! This wine cork pumpkin craft is super easy!
