I’m a big fan of reusing and recycling stuff I have around the house to create a decor item, I simply enjoy making the best out of almost anything! Like these wine corks I kept collecting from family members as I don’t do alcohol. These wine cork pumpkins add a pop of color to your home and are also a great way to teach older kids a little about crafting.
For this wine cork decor I made just a couple of small pumpkins but you could easily add some more wine corks to make yours bigger or make a bunch of small pumpkins. I also used traditional colors of orange, green and brown but do yours in the colors you like, I think they’ll look super fun painted in all kinds of color!
