Cork Tree Ornaments

 I found the inspiration for this cute craft from this pin and this pin on pinterest but I admit I did not look at the pictures very well, because the crafters used whole corks glued together - I cut mine! But it still worked!

If you decide to make these decorations, please be careful with that craft knife, corks are not easy to cut!

So, you will need 6 cork rounds and half a cork for the base. Arrange the cork pieces into a tree shape on a piece of card and glue them into place. 
Once dry carefully cut around the card and paint.
I added a dab of glue on the top cork and sprinkled glitter over it - to be my star
Then glue twine around the tree shape, make a hanging bit with the ends!

Verdict? Oh so sweet!!!

 The kids were so excited with the cute new decorations for the tree and they seriously were very easy to make!

Stay tuned for more Days of Christmas....

Take Care
