The project is quite simple, we will start by collecting 9 wine corks. If you don’t drink, ask any bar or restaurant in the neighborhood or ask a family member or neighbor, it probably won’t take much work to get you.
Cut each cork down the middle using a machine or handsaw. You can also do this with a knife if you don’t have tools at home 😉
Use a hot glue gun to glue the caps to each other, using the pattern shown below, being careful not to glue the cap in the middle of the star.
Then a circle is formed, and when the glue is dry, the central piece of cork is removed.
Form the snowflake by gluing the remaining pieces of cork together.
Use a drill or some other tool to make a hole in the piece that will carry a ribbon or string so that the ass can be hung up.
It is advisable to do this step before gluing parts. After making my first snowflake, I found it to be a lot easier this way.
Use a brush to apply the glue where we will put silver glitter.
Suggestion – Work on paper so you can take advantage of the excess glitter from the other pieces.
Thread the golden cord to hang the ornament, tie a knot so that it cannot come off.
Glue the gold ribbon around the snowflake to decorate the edge.
Now you can hang the snowflake on the Christmas tree for everyone to admire.
