Wine Cork Snowman

Triniti reminded me the other day that I hadn't made her a Christmas necklace. Oh, and she also told me that all the little girls in her first grade class wanted one, too. Yeah, that's not going to happen, but I don't have the heart to tell her yet. I told her a little white lie (that's why I'm not going to get the "Grandma of the Year" award) and said I was working on it, just didn't have it done yet. After she left, I went to my stash and tried to find something to make a necklace out of.

I found a wine cork and went with it.
Oops, just lost another vote for the award! Wine corks? For your granddaughter?

I painted the top of the cork white and the bottom black.

I traced the bottom of the cork on black felt and a bigger circle around it and cut.

Then it slips over the bottom (which is now the top) and I put a little glue to make sure it stayed.

I drew a face on with Sharpies.

Screw a Screw Eye (who knew that's what they were called) in the middle of the top of the cork.

Add a ribbon to hang it from and you're done.
Score! She loved it!
Now I just have to break it to her that I didn't make one for all her little friends.

ha ha ha,...hilarious. Maybe she'll enjoy being the only girl with the unique artisan necklace that grandma made her and you'll be off the hook. :)
