Enjoy with a glass of wine...

As of today there's fifty days until our wedding!!! And tomorrow is my Bridal Shower!!

I've been up at my momma's house doing party prep the last few days 
and I just finished up making her a little present 
{that she has been asking for since November..}
 
I had a bag of corks that we have been saving up for a while 
and I decided to put them to good {and crafty} use!
I've gotten a lot of comments about this project and so here's the scoop!
Craft away!
 
This project is a little time consuming but totally worth it!

 All you need is a straw wreath {I used a 12" but any size will work},
a hot glue gun and glue sticks, pins, and floral wire.

 Oh yeah! And Corks!
I haven't counted exactly how many I used for each wreath 
but if I had to guesstimate I would say probably 200-300.

 First, wrap the floral wire around the wreath so you have 
something to hang the wreath by once it is finished.
 Attach the corks.
I stick a pin in the bottom of the cork and then put some 
glue around the pin and push it into the wreath.
Work your way all the way around the wreath.
{it will probably take several hours and
  maybe some sore fingers from pushing in the pins...}

Ta-Da!
 Momma will love it!
 
The first question everyone asks when they see this wreath is
"Did you drink all that wine yourself??"
To which I {proudly} reply-
"It was a group project!"
