How To: Make Wine Cork Earrings

Remember when I told you that I had a huge bag of wine corks in the Wine Corks to Wall Art tutorial? Well, inspiration struck again and I decided to create wine cork earrings!

What You Will Need:

1. One wine cork

2. A knife with a serrated blade

3. A permanent marker

4. Hot glue/hot glue gun

5. Earring backs (you can find these at your local craft store in the jewelry section)

How To Do It:

1. With your serrated knife, cut your cork into thin slices.

2. Draw your own art on the cork slices. I drew hearts because that’s basically the extent of my drawing skills.

3. Turn the corks over and hot glue the earring backs to the cork. I glued mine towards the top of the corks.

When the hot glue has dried, you’re ready to wear them! Wasn’t that simple? They have such a natural and unique look. All your friends will ask you to make some for them, too!
