Supplies for Wine Cork Vases
- Cube shaped glass florist vases (bud vases work great!)
- Lots of wine corks (expect to need 40-70 per vase, depending on its size). Skip the plastic corks for this project – they don’t look as nice as the real thing
- Heavy duty craft glue like E6000
- (Optional) Knife to cut corks
How to Make Wine Cork Vases
2. Start gluing the corks on one side of the vase by adding a good dab of glue (but not too much that it oozes out!) to the back side of the cork. Hold in place for a few seconds before moving on to the next cork. You can move the corks around slightly so that they are evenly positioned on the vase and all flush together while the glue is still wet. Let one side dry completely before moving on to the next side.
3. Finish the vase by gluing corks vertically down the side. I saved my thicker corks for the sides. You’ll find that there are some corks that are wider around and slightly shorter than others. These are the ones that work great for the sides! I cut a cork in half and added it to the top of each side to fit the vase properly.
