Craft your own cork reindeer

Step 1

Cut 1 cork into quarters, leave the other 2 intact


Step 2

Take one of the intact corks and glue the quarters at an angle to the bottom (these are legs)


Step 3

Glue the final intact cork onto the body at an angle – this is the head


Step 4

Glue the goggly eyes on and the red bead for a nose


Step 5

Make a small incision into the top of the head and stick in the antlers, adding glue to additional strength


Step 6

If this is a Christmas tree decoration, attach the string and hang on your tree!
