- Styrofoam balls
- Wine corks
- Hot glue and glue gun
We purchased four styrofoam balls (two that were 4", one 8" and one 10").
We painted them a shade of brown so that the white was not seen in between the corks. I hung them to dry overnight.
Next, I hot glued the corks on one by one.
- I glued a line of corks around the center and then filled in one half. Then I flipped it over and filled in the other half row by row. Occasionally the bottom of a cork had to be trimmed down some to fit into a tighter space.

Could you give us a rough idea of how many corks it took for each diameter of ball? I'm trying to figure out which size ball I have enough corks for, and if I should get that size of ball or keep saving corks for a larger size. I'd really hate to get halfway through and find out I don't have nearly enough corks!

I think it's wild and adorable. I may spray some glitter on the ends and use a bigger styrofoam piece and end up with a disco ball. Why not thread some battery operated LED lights thru it too. Oh I am having all kinds of ideas running thru my head. Thank you for the inspiration.

These are so cool! What a good idea. I am going to try and make a few of these. If you need extra corks, this is a great source: http://www.corkstore.com/Products/Recycled-Corks

Very different...I looked twice. You must have had funny getting all those corks!I really like this idea,display in a large bowl or whatever, on a table. A real conversation starter, over a glass of wine. :o)
