Wine Cork Heart Tutorial 3


At Christmastime I saw a tree ornament that was a star made of wine corks and I thought that a heart shape would make a great decoration for Valentine’s Day!  Use corks from bottles of wine that you have shared with your Valentine to make this gift extra special and meaningful!

I took a couple of dry runs before I was ready to add the Xtreme Adhesive, but I LOVE the way that my cork heart turned out!

Start out with 22 wine corks.  I used synthetic ones that I got from a restaurant.  Dip each end into Country Red Americana paint by DecoArt.  I used a paper plate as a paint palette.  Stand corks paint side up to dry.

Once paint is dry, line up corks in a heart shaped pattern on your work surface until you are pleased with the shape of your heart.

Run a line of Tombow Xtreme Permanent Adhesive on the side of the first cork, snapping the adhesive off at a 90 degree angle once applied.  Attach corks together, one by one, until you have re-created the heart shape.

Cut a length of ribbon long enough to wrap around the outside of the heart.  I used red plaid ribbon that complimented my paint color.  Attach to outside of cork heart with Tombow MONO  Aqua Liquid Glue, let dry.

Cut a second length of ribbon, knot to create a loop, then tie ends into a bow.  Attach to top of wine cork heart with a straight pin.

Materials Used for Wine Cork Heart:  Tombow Xtreme Permanent Adhesive, Tombow MONO Aqua Liquid Glue, 22 Wine Corks, Country Red Americana paint by DecoArt, Paper Plate, Scissors, Red Plaid Ribbon and a Straight Pin.

These hearts are quick and easy to make as gifts for Valentine’s Day – the hardest part is literally waiting for the paint to dry!  LOL!
