All you’ll need are some corks (befriend a local publican to save their stash if you don’t drink – or if you fear for your liver), some art essentials (like paint and glue), some friends (to help you craft or drink the wine – or both!) and your own creative juices. Have fun, and please remember to share your creations with us!
To make these characters you will need:
- Corks (we recommend prosecco/champagne corks as they are shaped better)
- Acrylic paint
- Strong glue or low-melt glue gun
- Wiggly eyes
- Felt in various colours
- Pipe cleaners
- Sharpie pens or permanent markers
- A little creativity!
A great class project for a Christmas nativity scene. We think Jesus is just the cutest! We used a small wooden bead wrapped in white felt and went to town with the 3 wise men, using beautiful coloured felt and giving each of them a beard and a crown.
These cork snowmen are a lovely Christmas craft idea for the whole class. You might also make a Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer and possibly add a cork Santa with all the trimmings! By screwing a small metal loop to the head and adding some ribbon, these Christmas characters will also make unique tree-hanging decorations!
