Recently I made wine cork Christmas trees and now it’s time to make wine cork reindeer ornaments! You can tell what my favorite wines are too just by looking at the corks. (Hint. Hint.)
Isn’t the wine cork reindeer the cutest thing you have seen? In addition to my wine cork supply, I also have a huge collection of pipe cleaners, pom-poms and googly eyes to burn through.
What am I going to do when Christmas is over?
How to make a wine cork reindeer ornament
You can make your own collection of wine cork reindeers by following these easy steps.
(2) full wine corks (Tip: if you don’t have any wine corks, you can purchase them here in bulk).
(1) wine cork cut in half long ways for the legs (Tip: Use a sharp knife for this)
(1) wine cork cut in half sideways for the neck
(2) Googly eyes
(1) Red Pom-pom
Brown pipe cleaners
Glue Gun with glue
First, glue the long legs onto one normal sized wine cork. Then, attach the half cork on top of the regularly sized cork for Rudolf’s neck. Finally, attach another regular sized cork to the top for the head. (See picture below)
Glue a red pom-pom to the front of the wine work for his nose.
Glue two eyes on top.
Cut a small piece of brown pipe cleaner for his tail and glue it to the backside of the wine cork
To add a scarf, take a small red ribbon (or whatever color you choose) and wrap it around Rudolf’s neck. Glue together so it stays secure. To add some flair, glue a white button on top of the ribbon like shown below. If you want to make it an ornament, simple glue a ribbon or twine to the neck in a circle to hang on the tree!
