Oh what fun it is to craft, with a little cork and lace–HEY!  (sung to the tune of “Dashing Through the Snow”)

I loved making my first ornaments for this holiday season with a couple of free corks that I picked up at my local Whole Foods store and beautiful laces and trims from MelsCraftBoutique.  A little galvanized steel wire from the hardware store, some hot glue, and some old baubles (if you want to add a dangle) with some standard jewelry making tools is all you need.

Inventory at Mel’s shop is updated all the time, but I’ve linked to all the products I used in these altered cork ornaments that she has in stock as of 12/14/2014: Bridal Applique, Shimmery LeavesFlower Spray, and Mesh Leaves (mine started a slightly different shape, but these could be used the same way).

Remember, my readers can get 10% off minimum purchases of $15 at MelsCraftBoutique with the DT coupon code: CraftyPaws10. This coupon also gets you free U.S. shipping if your order is $40 or more!
