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.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I think it's wild and adorable. I may spray some glitter on the ends and use a bigger styrofoam piece and end up with a disco ball. Why not thread some battery operated LED lights thru it too. Oh I am having all kinds of ideas running thru my head. Thank you for the inspiration.

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:

I have so many corks I wouldn't throw out....this is great! I have so many trivets, and this is so different...thanks!

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

Hey I used to call those corks with hats ;-D ok ok I still do !

These would make great Christmas ornaments for neighbors in the smaller sizes and a great reason for happy hour!! :)

What would you do with these wine cork balls?

I would make a centerpiece for Christmas or winter.
