I suffered for this project, I burnt myself so many times with the hot glue. I actually put it up for a couple of days before I finished because of the burns. I learned cork slides and when you don’t pay close attention sinking your finger into the hot glue equals a big Ouch! It came out beautifully in spite of my clumsy behavior.
You don’t need many supplies and it doesn’t take to long to make(injury break not withstanding). I bought a box lot of 250 wine corks from EBay for $10.00. The straw wreath was $3.00 at the craft store and a package of glue sticks were $4.00. It took about 2 hours to make and it was a bit messy, straw went everywhere. I used every last cork I had and I wish I had another 25 or so to fill in a little more.
