Homemade for the Holidays No. 3
Holiday parties are in full swing which means host/hostess gifts are a must. I have to admit, I’m not the most hardworking when it comes to host gifts. As much as I love the idea of giving something creative or extra thoughtful like this or this, I almost always find myself bringing a nice bottle of wine or champagne to a party. After all, who doesn’t love free booze? This year, however, I decided to up my wine bottle offering with cute seasonal cork stoppers. They’re super easy to make and completely adorable. Want to learn how to make them?
Homemade Pinecone Cork Stoppers
What you’ll need:
Mini pinecones (found at most craft stores like Michael’s)
Plain corks (found here)
Paint & Glitter (in colors of your choice)
Hot glue and hot glue gun
1. Paint pinecones and add glitter while paint is wet. Allow to dry.
2. Hot glue pinecones to corks and press together until glue cools and pinecones adhere to corks.
Note: If your worried about glitter getting all over the place, finish your glittery pinecones with a clear coat of paint or Mod Podge. This will fix the glitter in place and it won’t be able to dust off.
