Wine Cork Balls


  • Styrofoam balls
  • Paint
  • Wine corks
  • Hot glue and glue gun


  1. We purchased four styrofoam balls (two that were 4", one 8" and one 10").

  2. We painted them a shade of brown so that the white was not seen in between the corks. I hung them to dry overnight.

  3. Next, I hot glued the corks on one by one.

  4. I glued a line of corks around the center and then filled in one half. Then I flipped it over and filled in the other half row by row. Occasionally the bottom of a cork had to be trimmed down some to fit into a tighter space.

These are so cool! What a good idea. I am going to try and make a few of these. If you need extra corks, this is a great source: http://www.corkstore.com/Products/Recycled-Corks

Very different...I looked twice. You must have had funny getting all those corks!I really like this idea,display in a large bowl or whatever, on a table. A real conversation starter, over a glass of wine. :o)

Interesting. Cute in a weird sort of way, but I like them. I just pictured champagne corks on them, looking like mushrooms growing on a ball. LOL
