Cork Painting: How to Paint, Recycle & Have Fun With Old Wine Corks!

Cork painting is a fun and economical activity for kids! And a great way to use those wine corks! Here we'll tell you how to make a tree, but don't limit your kids' wine cork painting to trees! Tell them the sky is the limit!

You'll need:

  • wine corks (different sizes)
  • tray for paint
  • yellow, red, orange and green paint (depending on the season your want to depict)
  • brown construction paper
  • white paper
  • glue
  • scissors

Here's how to do it:

  1. Cut a tree using the brown construction paper and glue it to your white paper. You can paint the tree trunk and wait for it to dry. 
  2. Get different paint colors ready. Using different size corks, dip them in the paint and use them to make leaves for your tree trunk made from construction paper. 
  3. Wait for the artwork to dry and hang in a place where your kiddos can see it!
