I have another confession, I really don’t drink much wine. The corks used here, were bought from the craft store. Yes, I’m more of a cocktail drinker, not a fine wine connoisseur. But you can certainly consume until your hearts desire, and collect your own personal supply of corks!
Supplies needed for these “chardonnay” Angels:
Wine Corks (from the craft store or last night)
Angel Wings (I inherited these beautiful lacy ones from my Mom’s stash)
Beads, tassels, charms, eye pins, jump rings, sequin pins
pliers and wire cutters
I started by attaching the wings to the back of the cork with sequin pins.
Next I found a pretty head bead and used an eye hook and smaller seed bead (to keep it from sliding off) and pushed into the top center of the cork.
Another eye pin with a tassel on the bottom, some pretty beads on the stem. Push this into the bottom of the cork (centered). You could do multiple strands of beads, chains, seed beads. Use your stash and be creative. I was looking for a vintage, copper and cork combo here.
Thought she needed a little more sparkle on her cork, so I added seed beads with sequin pins around the edges (top and bottom) of the cork. I did have to take off her wings, should have done this step earlier. Live and Learn! That’s the beauty of doing it yourself. You can add/subtract, take it apart and put it all back together again until it looks the way you like.
So try not to overindulge in the vino, but be sure to save the corks!
