Learn how to make fun and easy DIY Christmas crafts for kids with wine cork ornaments. Most of the supplies can be bought really cheaply at your local dollar store and will make really good holiday decorations for your Christmas tree! I enjoy a little bit wine with my family at dinner . So we have some wine corks left at home, I was wondering how I can re-use them .
Since the Christmas is around the corner, maybe we can make some ornaments for the holiday. It’s not only a good home decoration idea but also a nice way to recycle those corks, right ? If you’re anything like me or my mother, you have a whole lot of wine corks lying around your house and not a whole lot of things to do with them. Since the holidays are here, we thought it would be fun to make some Christmas tree ornaments!
Our favorite DIYs are always ones that you can do with a glass of wine. So, pour yourself a glass of Pinot Noir (save that cork!) and plug in your hot glue gun—we’ve got three holiday tutorials to help you decorate your Christmas tree this year.
One wine cork (for the body)
One large bead (for the head)
Thick ribbon (for the wings)
Thin ribbon (for the bowtie and to hang the ornament)
Gold wire (for the halo)
Hot glue gun + glue
Plug in your hot glue gun. Let it get warm.
Glue bead to one end of the cork. Let dry.
Use the wire to make a halo, and glue it to the back of the cork, behind the head.
Create wings with the thicker ribbon by folding each end and gluing them together in the middle (or you could just tie a large bow). Glue them on the back of the cork.
Tie a small bow with the thin ribbon and glue it to the front of the angel. Take an extra piece of the same ribbon and glue it to either side of the body, so you can hang it from your Christmas tree.
