Cork ornaments are not only fun to make, but are great as gifts for the holidays!When you’re home all day and your four year old has inherited your intense desire to craft, you have to come up with fun and quiet activities to keep him busy during little sister’s nap time. Here’s out latest project and we think it’s pretty amazing. My son and I had the best time making these for all our close friends and family. They really were easy once we had it all figured out.
What you’ll need: 9-18 corks, depending on condition, sharp chef’s knife, paint, sprinkle glitter or glitter glue, hot glue gun, tacky glue, ribbon, toothpick, screw eye hooks (see photo below).
Cut corks in half (you’ll need 18 total so look for the best ones once they’re cut.) Paint tops and add glitter. Once dry, use hot glue gun and six cork halves to make center of snowflake. (Use a seventh as a place holder for the middle, then pop out once the six are all glued). Add two more corks to each point where two meet. Next use tacky glue and a toothpick to adhere ribbon to perimeter. The toothpick trick really helps get the ribbon in the tight grooves. Add and eye hook to top and finish off with a ribbon for hanging. We loved experimenting with all different colors and combinations. Happy crafting!
