MissesStitches is at it again with the wine corks!
The other day I dug into (part of) my collection
of wine corks. An idea had popped into my head which I wanted to try.
Here is my arsenal of tools: wine corks, hot
glue gun, and paper to cover and protect the dining room table.
Glued together a row of corks.
What can MissesStitches be up to?
Now here's a second, third,
and part of a fourth row,
all glued together.
An action shot! This is how the corks are actually glued together!
I took a little break, because I got some
hot glue on my finger. That stuff really is hot! I couldn't get the glue off right away, so it stayed there and burned me. OUCH! I ran some cold water over my finger for a while, then went back to work, with a nice little white blister on my index finger. Of course, it had to be right on my trigger finger, so this hampered my glue gunning style somewhat.
Now you can probably tell what it is going to be!
A wine cork mini Christmas tree! Now to add a base to the tree...
a little Christmas
ribbon to wrap around it all...
a little mini-bow to the top
Voila! You can see that I chose to arrange the corks in rows of red and white. Thought about doing it randomly. Thought about doing it in concentric "circles," if you get what I mean. Maybe for the next one....
