DIY Cork Snowflake Ornament

I cannot be the only one with a lot of saved wine corks. This is a pretty easy, yet clever and useful way to repurpose all those corks you have been saving. These DIY cork snowflake ornaments can be glittered any color. If giving as a gift, tape the string to the front of a present instead of a bow! I often do that with ornaments, and people seem to like the extra little gift.

Like all crafts on Ann’s Entitled Life, this is pretty darned easy. This one is so simple that older children (under adult supervision for the cutting and hot gluing) can do it too!

DIY Cork Snowflake Ornament Materials:

• 9 Wine Corks
Silver Paint
Silver Glitter
• Sharp Knife
Glue Gun
