Remove the plastic wrapping from around the wreath form, but keep the string in its place. Wrap floral wire around the top of the wreath, leaving enough room to fit two fingers underneath the wire. Use the excess wire later to hang the wreath.

Turn on the hot glue gun and wait for it to warm up. Add some hot glue gun to one of the corks, and press it to the inner edge of the wreath form, holding it for a few seconds to let the glue dry. Continue with the other corks by first going around the center edge of the wreath, then gradually going around the ring of the wreath.

Continue adding corks one at a time in any desired pattern. The goal is to cover the straw of the wreath form completely. The pattern and number of layers of cork used depends on personal preference. Some people might prefer all corks to go around the wreath in the same direction, while others may prefer multiple layers of corks going in many different directions.
