Snowflake Wine Cork Ornament
A snowflake wine cork ornament is a craft that I had so much fun making. This is a great way to upcycle wine corks to create a beautiful Christmas ornament for your tree.
A snowflake made from wine corks is a decoration that can be enjoyed for Christmas and throughout the winter. This simple craft is inexpensive and can be made in an afternoon. Be sure to check out all of my Christmas crafts!
Start by gathering nine wine corks. Mine match but they don’t have to. If you don’t drink, ask a local bar to save corks for you or buy corks.
Cut each cork in half using a band saw or hand saw.
Use a hot glue gun to glue the corks together in the pattern shown below being sure not to apply glue to the middle cork. (Don’t miss my handy DIY hot glue gun holder!)
After a circle is formed and the glue is dry, remove the center cork piece.
Form the snowflake by gluing on the remaining cork pieces.
Use a drill or drill press to drill a hole in one outer cork piece for hanging.
I would recommend doing this step before gluing any of the pieces together. After making my first snowflake, I drilled before gluing and it was much easier.
Use a foam brush to apply Mod Podge or glue to the top of each ornament and then generously apply glitter. (I love this Martha Stewart Crafts White Gold Glitter.)
Tip – Work over waxed paper so that you can pour the leftover glitter back into the container.
I used gold cord for hanging the ornament and gold ribbon for embellishing the edge.
Glue ribbon to the edge of the ornament with a glue gun.
Thread a needle with the cording and feed it through the hole. Tie a knot.
Hang your wine cork snowflake on the tree for all to admire.
Changing the ribbon or glitter color gives the wine cork ornament a totally different look.
A snowflake wine cork ornament would be a fun one for a craft club or for teens. It also would make a great gift.

If you like snowflakes, how about making a few snowflake pillows for your home? Pottery Barn sells a snowflake pillow cover for $59.50. My version costs just $17.50! I made these snowflake pillows using snowflakes from the dollar store.
I must have a thing for snowflakes, because I’ve also made a snowflake wreath, a snowflake ornament from clothespins (super popular on Pinterest!), a sparkly snowflake ornament, and most recently decorated a flocked tree in our living room with snowflakes including 26 Swarovski snowflakes given to me each Christmas by my husband.
I also love to wear snowflake earrings all winter as well as a snowflake necklace.

What a cute idea! I don’t have any corks, but that’s a great idea to have someone save them for you! Thank you so much for joining us on our craft tour!
I ask the bartender where I play tennis to save them for me and it’s no time before he has a bag!
Super cute idea! I have plenty of wine corks, this would be a good one for me. Happy to be on the ‘craft tour’ with you 🙂
Paula this is so cool and unique! What an awesome idea. I love the one with the red ribbon. 😉 Sharing!
I love the addition of glitter! I haven’t seen that on a cork project before.
What a cute idea. I have a stash of corks just waiting for a project
oh, these are great! I’m always on the lookout for crafts that use corks, but so many of them look a little too much like….a bunch of corks ;). But this is super cute!
That turned out so well! And I think I have a bag of corks that are just waiting to become cute ornaments!
Love the glitter addition – the perfect combo with the corks! I have a whole bag of corks that are asking for a project like this!

I looove this ornament! You did such a good job! Can’t wait to see it in The Clutch Guide!
