Make a cork angel ornament by using recyclables and other bits and ends from your craft room!
I’m always holding on to odds and ends like corks, bottle caps, lids, and other bits in pieces in case I can use them someday.  I decided to pull out various bits and pieces that I’ve been collecting or that are left over from other projects to make some unique, recycled cork angel ornaments.  Dig through your junk drawer and see what you can create!

Supplies:

  • Corks
  • Bottle Caps
  • Paint and glitter
  • Styrofoam balls
  • Burlap and wire
  • Hot glue gun

Step one:  Dip the styrofoam balls in glue, then cover them with  glitter.  I find that placing the ball on a toothpick or stick makes it easier to work with.


Step two:  Make the wings.  For the wire angel wings,  just fold each end into the center and twist together.  For the burlap angel wing, fold each end into the center and hot glue in place.

 

Step three:  Assemble the angels by gluing the cork onto the bottle cap, the ball onto the top, and the wings onto the back.

There are so many ways you can vary the angels and make them uniquely your style.  I decided to paint one of my corks and bottle caps white, to create a “glowing” angel.  I added glitter to one of the corks so it would sparkle a bit.  I even varied one of the angels by adding an acorn instead of the styrofoam ball, to create a piece that was made completely from recycled or found objects!  You could make your own varieties of angel ornaments with different colors of paint, different fabrics, and adding other found items to the corks to make them as unique as you are! Have fun crafting and creating angel ornaments for the Christmas holidays!
