Wine Cork Ornament

I have to admit that I got this idea on Pinterest. Once again, I wish it was my own. One thing I have learned though from doing projects is that they are still always unique. We all still put our own style into our work so our finished project is still our own! I got this idea from

Here is a picture of one of the finished ornaments:

Supplies Needed;
Wine Cork
Three buttons that have at least two holes
Jump Ring 9mm
Cord (I found in Jewelry Dept at Michaels)
Glue (I used Goop)
Drill and Bit
I left out a button, ruler, and the Goop in the picture below.
The first thing you do is measure out about 18 in of cord with the ruler. Then you take your pliers and hook a jump ring to your charm. Then thread the charm through the cord just like if you were running it through a necklace. I used a wine glass charm from Michael's. Next you thread each piece of cord through one of the button holes with the front of your button facing down.

Next you drill a hole all the way through the wine cork from top to bottom. Then run your two pieces of cord through the cork. Then take a little bit of glue and glue the bottom button to the bottom of the wine cork.
Next you run two more buttons of choice (I glued the bottom one to the top of the wine cork) through the cord like you did the bottom one.Then make a loop with the cord like you are tying a bow, but do not make a knot. Last take the cord and judge how big you would like your last loop (what you would hang from a tree) and tie a knot and cut off the excess.
You now have an ornament to give to those you love you also love wine! Another idea for these is to turn them into key chains, just buy the large rings at the craft store. I am going to try this next. Here are my finished ornaments! Don't forget to make one for yourself!
