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!

  1. The reindeer are really cute and I like the candle jar idea. Who knew there are so many ideas out there for wine corks!

  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.

  3. I have been collecting corks forever and I am finally starting to do something with them! These are cute!
