Today I am sharing a gift idea! A wine cork charm or ornament.

Materials Needed:
Wine Cork
Wire Cutters
Round Nose Pliers

Cut a strip of wire about a foot long and then bend the wire in half.

Push your wire through your cork using the hole the cork screw made when removing the cork from the wine bottle.  Use your cork screw and to make your hole bigger if necessary.

Make a loop using your round nose pliers at the bottom of your charm.

String a few beads at the top of your charm.

Mske a loop at the top of your charm and then wrap your wire back around a few times. 

Attach your charm to a ribbon and gift it to your favorite wine drinking friend! Or hang it on your Christmas Tree!
