How to Make a Wine Cork Christmas Ornament
To get started, trace a bottle cap or other small round object onto a piece of craft foam. Make sure the object is larger than your cork to form a base for the candle.
Next, cut out the circle and add hot glue to the bottom of the cork before gluing it in the center.
Wrap a green branch from a wreath around the bottom of the cork and cut it to fit nicely. Twist the ends together to form a small circle and place it at the bottom of the cork, sitting on top of the red foam base.
Bend a small piece of yellow pipe cleaner in half and form a pointed tip. Cut off the small bend piece and twist the ends together.
To form the flame of your candle ornament, push the sharp ends of the pipe cleaner into the top of the cork to secure it in place.
Tie a piece of red ribbon into a tiny bow and glue it to the bottom of the cork ornament above the green branches.
To create a hanger for your ornament, cut a small piece of green floral wire and push each of the ends into the top of the cork near the backside. You’re finished!
