Re-purposed Corks Make for a Delightful Pumpkin Piece:Upcycling wine corks into this charming pumpkin is easy. Just glue the corks together in a pumpkin shape using a hot glue gun. Add a stem to the top. Paint the ends of the corks orange. Add a few felt leaves and a twine bow. This is a great way to repurpose something that would ordinarily go in the trash.
