It's truly never too early to think of Christmas. It's March and I am well under way for Christmas Fair season 2012! Here are my wine cork Christmas ornaments. You could use them as ornaments or you could use them as wine bottle decoration when you bring a bottle of wine to a party. The possibilities are endless; as are the items you can use to decorate. Don't just do what I do, do whatever you like! I plan on selling these for $2-3 each, depending upon the complication of them. This featured set is $2 for each. I find it funny how "trendy" wine corks are right now. You can make anything you see that you like yourself. YOU DONT NEED TO PAY EXORBITANT PRICES! I can't believe what some places charge for items with corks.
You will need a smaller, delicate rotary drill. I got mine as a gift for Christmas (many thanks to my father in law) - but you can get these at hardware shops, or even some department stores.
You will need a cording or jewelry wire. I used mostly jewelry wire for these. The cording is slightly harder to fit in the hole, so you would want a slightly larger drill bit. Then, other than the corks, you will need embellishments. I used a combination of items...I talk more about that down below.
Honestly, this is a project just to fool around with and come up with your own style and taste! I plan on doing more in another blog post....I will have a video, and I will show how to get really complicated with multiple corks! For now, here is your start! Save those corks!! Good luck!
