Mini Wine Cork Balls

Sundays are perfect for lazy days and crafting while watching football, and that’s exactly how this craft came about!  I bought some wooden balls from Hobby Lobby earlier in the week knowing I wanted to try this with the extra corks I had lying around

What you’ll need:

  • Wine corks (~13)
  • 1 1/2″ wooden ball
  • Hot glue gun

Like most of my projects, I saw something I liked, decided I wanted to make it, and figured out a plan of how to do it myself.  On one of my many trips to Hobby Lobby, I came across the wooden balls and figured they would be the best to use as the center of the cork ball.

I grabbed some corks, plugged in my hot glue gun and got started.  I wasn’t really sure what to do, so I basically started gluing the corks to the ball —  Seemed straight forward enough.

I feel like with any wine cork craft, things never fit quite perfectly since all corks are slightly different.  Well, this was no exception.  Toward the end, the corks didn’t fit perfectly on the ball, but close enough, and close enough is good enough  for me!  I glued all the corks on the ball, and was done.

It wasn’t a perfect ball, but I like it! Right now it’s sitting next to my map pumpkin, and I’m sure it’ll move around, but it’ll always be in season.

Next, I might try to make bigger cork balls — possible Christmas ornaments?
