Mini Wine Cork Wreath

What you’ll need:
• Wine Corks *The number will vary depending on how large you want your wreath (and how many glasses you decide to have)!

How to do it:
1. To get an idea of your layout, arrange wine corks into a small circle within a circle standing on their ends. *Optional: Print out a circle template to use as a guide.
2. Start gluing the sides of the inner layer together until it forms a circle. Wait a few seconds in-between gluing corks to give them time to secure.

5. Tie a piece of ribbon around the wreath to hang on a chair, door handle or wall.

Tu appelles donc le service client et là, on te dit que tu ne peux pas être remboursée car tu es abonnée. ET VOILA le tour est joué, impossible d'avoir un remboursement puisque ton compte VIP a été crédité de 49,95 que tu dois dépenser sur le site.. MERCI. C'est HONTEUX, MALHONNETE !! Mais non plutôt BRAVO à ceux qui surfent sur la naïveté des gens, chapeau. Et bien la publicité je vais la faire tiens, mais pas pour les vanter oh non !!!!
