Valentines Day DIY Crafts: Wine Cork Heart

DIY CRAFT: WINE CORK HEART As you know by now I love a good wine cork craft! You've seen my cork tree and cork orb and now....this cute cork heart! This little craft was quick and easy and makes for the perfect little Valentines Day touch! After all there is never a shortage or wine or hearts around the day of  LOVE!  All you need for this craft is your glue gun, wine corks and a paper with the size shape heart you plan to make. Are you ready? This gets technical! Just kidding just kidding...Attach each cork to the next one by applying a small line of hot glue.  Continue all the way around your traced heart shape and you are done! (Give each cork about 10 seconds to dry before moving onto the next one)  Tada! How cute is this heart?! I love how the red wine stains actually make it even more festive! Let me know if you try it or if you have any other cute wine cork crafts you want to share! XOXO Tracy
