Cork Accent Piece

Today is such a cold and windy day outside - which is my kind of crafting day!  Some friends gave me a bag of wine corks so I decided to make an accent piece out of them. I already had styrofoam balls, glue gun and paint on hand, so this project was basically free and very easy to make.

After painting the ball a neutral shade and letting it dry,  I  glued on the corks starting in the center and then around the diameter.  The next row was glued on between the first row and continue in that pattern until  .  .  .

the ball was completely filled with corks.

Then I decided that I wanted a larger accent ball so I glued on more corks on top of the first corks:

This looks so much better!

Take a little time to enjoy
Happy Crafting!
