I’m so happy to be here for Day 8 of the Christmas Advent. I’ve teamed up with a group of bloggers and together we’re making an online Christmas Advent where you will find a new Christmas related theme each morning. Be sure to go over to check out the days you might have missed here at Bloggers Christmas Advent Project and catch up on the holiday fun.
Today I’m really excited to share with you my sweet little Angel Ornament as Day 8 of this project.
Remember my recent trip to Italy? I also told you that, although I don’t drink wine, I did bring back some wine corks from my trip to make fun projects with. Do you have a handful of wine corks sitting around? If not then don’t worry because you can easily find them online to purchase in bulk too. If so, take a peek below at a sweet wine cork angel ornament you can craft. Using just a wine cork and a few common crafting supplies, you can make this Angel Ornament which is perfect for gift giving or your holiday tree. Here is how you can get started.
Wood doll head (check the wood craft section at your local craft store)
Gold or silver pipe cleaner
Scrap fabric or burlap
Hot glue, glue gun
1. Begin by applying a generous amount of hot glue to the bottom of your wood doll head. Press it to the top of the cork and hold in place until secure.
2. Cut a small length of pipe cleaner (about one inch) and bend it into a loop. Add a dab of glue and place it on the top of the doll head to look like a sweet little halo.
3. Take a small piece of scrap fabric or burlap and fold it like a paper fan. Pinch it in the center to create a bow tie shape. Tie it in the center with a piece of pipe cleaner so the shape holds. Secure the “wings” to the back of the cork with a generous amount of hot glue.
4. Pencil on the face of your angel with a pencil or marker. A simple face looks great. Don’t feel the need to get too detailed.
5. Finish your wine cork angel ornament by gluing a loop of pipe cleaner onto the back of the cork to act as a hanger.
Your wine cork angel ornament is now ready to be displayed. Give this easy and inexpensive holiday craft a try and see what you can come up with.

I hope you enjoyed this fun and simple craft today. I happen to love Angel Ornaments and have collected all sorts of angels for my daughter’s tree from the time they were babies. Do you usually do a Christmas Advent of some sort at your house? Have you ever? If so then tell me what type you did. I love hearing about them.
