Wine Cork Knit Trees

Wine Cork Knit Trees

This week on Ask Me Monday, we’re celebrating Christmas in July with a sweet, scrap-buster project for the holidays. Wine Cork Knit Trees make adorable ornaments, magnets , and even stand-along decorations (wine cork tree forest, anyone). Decorate them for Christmas, with sequin and beads, or keep them plain for Winter or Earth Day. Regardless, you’ll love these cu-tree-pies!
