Only I would buy a bag of someone’s wine corks at a yard sale! That done, I needed to come up with something to do with them.
So, here is my solution: little reindeer made with different sizes of twigs from the yard, a cork and hot glue – with a little red pom-pom nose as the finishing touch! With the holidays coming up, these little guys would be great on presents, in wreaths or tucked in centerpieces. Just cut the twigs and experiment. You’ll find that each reindeer has a character of its own.
Now, go get some twigs, pop that cork and have some fun.
* You can also make the star from caning or paper. Mine are handmade ones I bought at a local store. Here are the DIY directions.
