For some unexplained reason, I have saved the cork from every bottle of wine I have drank for the last couple of years… I’m not gonna tell you how many corks I have accumulated, but let’s just say it’s time to do some crafting! I found a few ideas for cork Christmas trees and wreaths on Pinterest, but I was just looking for something to do while I am sitting on the couch watching tv. So when I came across these cork Angels, I thought they were really cute.
I then threaded a wire through the hole. I decided to use copper wire for this project, but obviously, any wire would work.
I threaded on the head next. I have no idea where I got these little heads from, but they worked perfectly. If you can’t find any, you could easily draw a face on a plain bead using a sharpie. Before I cut the wire, i looped the top and twisted the end…
Then, I cut the other end of the wire… And twisted a few loops to hold it in place.Then, to make the wings, I wrapped the wire around my fingers four times, left a bit extra, and cut it off. I pinched the wire in the center and used the excess to wrap around the middle. Then spread out the loops in sort of a fan.
So, I made a bunch…. What do you call a group of Angels? A pack? A flock? Anyways, I’m thinking I might add them to a wine bottle for Christmas gifts….
Look at these other ideas I found… I better crack open another bottle so I can keep up….
