Wine Cork Melting Snowman

Some of you may remember that last year I made a Snowman Necklace out of this same kind of wine cork.

This year I turned the cork the other way and now the poor little guy is melting!

I took the cork and painted it white.

Yeah, ignore that awful face. I'm such a bad artist, I can't even draw eyes with a marker! Maybe if I had taken Art instead of Band in school, I could draw a circle. Probably wouldn't have helped, but that's my excuse. Anybody want to hear me play the flute, piccolo, oboe, piano, or organ?

I was able to make a scarf out of felt and glued it to the bottom of the cork.

For the base, I painted a cardboard coaster from a restaurant (yeah, I save mine when we go out to eat) white and glued a couple of pieces of batting to it.

Then glued the cork to the base. Still need to change that face!

I added buttons for the eyes and his melted buttons. The ear muffs are a piece of felt and pom poms. His nose is also felt.

We had snow flurries here yesterday so when I was editing my photo's I thought the added snow was perfect. Maybe it will help with Frosty's melting problem!

Oh, and by the way, I am so not ready for snow!!!

Pin It

Sweet! Unfortunately, not much wine gets downed in our house. If only beer came with a cork;-)

Ah, Terri, you make me laugh, wishing you'd taken art instead of band. lol ANYWAY, that's a very cute snowman and deserves to be loved. ♥♥

I'm wondering about you and Greg, however, and wondering how you end up with all those wine corks. ;-) lol
