Don't Put Those Wine Corks Away Quite Yet!

I decided to try making a few reindeer while I was working on the wine cork Nativity figures over the weekend.


I first saw these on Pinterest at the Homeless Finch blog.

 
I changed them out a bit, using sticks for legs, neck and antlers. These were simple . . . no tutorial needed. The hardest part was making holes in the corks that would allow the sticks to fit snugly. I ended up using my awl and securing them with a dot of hot glue.
 
 
I plan to use these little reindeer on the porch of our log cabin dollhouse when I finish decorating it for Christmas.
 
With my remaining corks, I'm going to try this idea from Chelsea at two twenty-one:
 
 
Such a warm accent for the holidays and so simple!
 
 
 
Two more great excuses to drink wine!

  2. I thought surely you would create some sheep,a donkey and the Wise Men for the nativity scene. But the reindeer is cute! Thank you for sharing at Make It Monday.
