Last week, I started making new Christmas ornaments. These cute little snowmen are made from wine corks. It is not my original idea, I want to credit Shade Tree Carvings on Etsy, her idea inspired me to make these.
I painted the corks with a light coat of white paint. The hats are made from paper and I attached the heads to the bodies with a toothpick, leaving space to tie on a scarf.
To hang them on the tree I glued a small clothespin to the back of the body.
This is how they started. I have been saving corks for a few years now and I have my friends saving them for me as well. There are a lot of creative ideas out there for using corks. I really like this one.
Thanks for visiting!
