  1. Gather the materials. You will need a wooden ring (any size) and wine bottle corks (bought or upcycled, as many as needed for size of wreath). Begin to plan out a design. TIP: Each flower takes seven corks, so plan accordingly. For the leaves of the flowers, cut the corks in half horizontally, as many as needed.

  2. Begin to bring flowers together by applying glue on all sides of the middle cork. (You can use hot glue or E6000.) TIP: If using E6000 Glue, tape the shape together until dry.

Paint Citron Green onto the sliced corks in the shape of a leaf. Allow to dry. Apply second coats to the surfaces, if needed.
