I am not a very creative person. I can take a great candid photo, apparently I have a good eye and/or good timing. But that is about where it ends. I LOVE to cook, but all of my recipes are inspired by other people’s recipes… Basically I’m a big ol fraud. But I guess as long as I give credit where credit is due, I’m golden when it comes to crafty karma, right?!
So it should come as no surprise that while at a winery we were visiting, I saw a cute ornament on their Christmas tree and wanted to try and make them for my friends as little tokens of friendship.
I rushed home to my stash of wine corks. High-fiving myself for the brilliant idea of keeping all of the corks from bottles I drink, never having a purpose for them until now! I jump onto Google, where Pinterest apparently has about a billion people that have done this craft. I don’t even think I can credit one specific Pinner, because I kind of took ideas from all of them.
I hit up Michael’s craft store, and for less than $5 in supplies from the craft store (pipe cleaner, googly eyes, red poms, 1/8″ ribbon), a pair of scissors, my glue gun, and my oodles of wine corks, I was able to make all of my friends their own little Rudolph the Wineo Reindeer…
And if you are sick and twisted like me, or have the mind of a 14 year old boy, you put the corkscrew end on the rear of the deer. Heh.
