Cork Reindeer

10-corkIt’s that time again – time for Christmas Stocking Swap crafting! This is my 9th consecutive year participating in this swap and is by far my favorite to make items for. Not only does it get me in the mood to start sewingcrafting for my friendsfamily, it gives me a chance to make holiday themed items I might not otherwise have the chance to create (or even thought of)! A great case in point: this cork reindeer.

4 corks, hot glue (only because my E6000 disappeared, the hot glue seems to be holding well), tiny bellsbeads, and a trip down the holiday isle at my craft store is all it took to make this little guy.  I think he’s pretty cute and I have enough materials to make one more (for myself).
