Cork and Paper Ball Ornament



Homemade Christmas ornaments don't have to be complicated or expensive. Use leftover wine cork and old wrapping paper to create your own festive keepsake. A Cork and Paper Ball Ornament is a simple and eco-friendly craft for the holiday season.

Cork and Paper Ball Ornament


  • Clear plastic ball ornament
  • 15 wine corks
  • Wrapping paper scraps
  • Scissors
  • Mod Podge


  1. Cut wrapping paper into rectangles approximately 3” by 1”. One wrapping paper rectangle per cork.
  2. Apply mod Podge around the middle of the wine cork.
  3. Wrap paper rectangle around the wine cork so that the short ends overlap.
  4. Add a small amount of mod Podge to the overlapping edge so that all wrapping paper adheres securely around the cork. Allow to dry completely.
  5. Mod Podge over the paper for a clear finish. Allow to dry completely.
  6. Remove ornament top.
  7. Insert wine corks into the clear plastic ball ornament. Replace ornament top.
