Despite my blog's name, I really haven't done many non-sewing crafts in recent years... but this year is different!
We had this massive jar of wine corks I've been saving for years, with no particular purpose in mind. I knew they had to have some sort of crafty utility, but I just hadn't settled on the project until this month: a wine cork wreath and some champagne cork snowman ornaments!
The snowmen were a team effort... Tim painted the champagne corks white while I worked on the fiddly bits: felt brim hats made from a cork cut in half and painted black, a ribbon scarf, and a painted face.
The inspiration for these guys was searching "wine cork snowman" on Pinterest. I sort of gave ours their own twist in the details. I love how they turned out! They're super cute and each have their own personality.
Our next project: a wine cork wreath! Super simple: wreath form, corks, hot glue gun.
