Sometimes I have thought about what to open that night before 8am...

Christmas Cork Wreath

For years I have wanted a cork wreath for Christmas.  

I saved my corks, and saved my corks, and saved my corks, and saved my corks, and saved my corks...  and then I sold my house, moved cross country and gave all my corks away!  

Trust me, you part with a lot of prized posessions when your entire life has to fit in an 8x8x16 foot Pod.

The idea of starting over was daunting.  I had years invested in this process.  So instead, much like the rest of my life, I decided to make something lovely out of what I had on hand.
My very fancy work station.  Yes that is a Domino's box.  Don't judge me.
I bought this grapevine wreath at Michaels.  It was $7.99.  Added the roughly 30 corks I have accumulated since the move.  Plugged in the hot glue gun, and Voila!  

Rustic Christmas Cork Wreath.  

The best part is that I can continue to add to it over the years.  And somehow, when it is all said and done, this is really much more me!

  1. LOVE this ... but Target will probably steal your idea and start selling them, just as they stole your skeleton wreath!
