Hi, everyone! Do you love making holiday crafts? Teri here to show you a fun way to turn a recycled wine cork into a cute snowman ornament for your Christmas tree!
Create the Snowman
Paint a wine cork with white paint. Let it dry and then start by cutting down an Adhesive Sheet 4x6in. to fit around your wine cork. Roll the adhesive onto the cork. Burnish the adhesive onto it. Don’t worry if you cover the cork completely with adhesive.
Set some glitter on a scrap piece of paper. Roll the cork in the glitter, allowing all the adhesive to be covered up.
Adhere the wiggle eyes onto your cork with Adhesive Dots. Use a size of Adhesive Dots appropriate for your eyes. For me, I used the Adhesive Dots Micro for the small eyes and the Adhesive Dots Medium Ultra Thin for the bigger eyes. Cut a piece of scrap fabric and tie it around your cork, using Adhesive Dots Micro to hold it in place.
Use a second fabric scrap to make a hat! Place a couple of Adhesive Lines along the top edge of your cork. Roll the fabric around it. Tie it at the top with string or twine. Add a button.
Cut a triangle to mimic a carrot nose from cardstock. Adhere it with an Adhesive Dot Micro to your snowman. Turn your snowman into an ornament by fashioning a hanger from wire or string!
Change Up to Home Decor
You can easily change the look of your snowman. Rather than giving him a hat, Use some wire and buttons to make ear muffs.
You can also go without a hat or earmuffs! Try adding a button to bump up your snowman’s cuteness.
Wine cork snowmen make great holiday decorations too! Rather than giving them hangers, pair a few of them together with a bottle brush Christmas tree! Set them on a tile or small slice of wood. You can adhere them in place with Adhesive Dots to keep them from moving around if desired!
I hope you are inspired by this tutorial to create a snowman or two!
