Cork Angel & Wine Box
It is Day 12 and we are wrapping things up with a cute DIY ornament
and decorated wine box.
For the Angel
champagne or sparkling wine cork, small plastic ornament (I used glittered ornaments)
silver wire, satin ribbon, twist tie or pipe cleaner, hot glue gun & glue sticks
For the Wine Box
kraft colored wine box (I found mine at Target)
satin ribbon, metallic paint (mine are Martha Stewart), sponge daubers, a sharpie,
“cheers” printed to fit one side of the box, newspaper & a ball point pen
- Remove the silver top from the plastic ornament and cut the “stem” off the ornament so it is completely round
- Hot glue the ornament to the top of the champagne/sparkling wine cork.
- Cut a length of silver decorative wire and twist the two ends together leaving a circle at the end. Bend the wire into a halo.
- Hot glue the halo to the cork and ornament.
- Cut a length of satin ribbon about 6-8 inches long
- Loop each end of the ribbon to the center.
- Pinch the ribbon together and use a twisty it to secure the ribbon into a bow. Trim the ends of the twisty.
- Hot glue the bow to the back of the angel where the halo meets the cork
- I attached a sheer ribbon to the halo (not shown above)
- I decided to update the cord holding the top of the box in place so I removed it from the box and cut satin ribbon to the length needed. We will use the ribbon in the last step.
- The top of my box has polka dots. I knew that the metallic paint would most likely not cover up the dots but they work with my design so I wasn’t too worried. I painted a sheer coat of metallic paint over the top of the box to bring a little shimmer.
- Using the method from our Dotted Kraft Table Runner on Day 4 I traced “cheers” on to the box and filled it in with a sharpie.
- After finishing the wording I added metallic dots just like we did on Day 4 with our Dotted Kraft Runner.
- The last step is to thread the ribbon back through the lid, add a bottle of wine or bubbly, attach the angel, and gift it!
I am loving this box and that it matches the design of our Dotted Kraft Table Runner. I’d love to see your projects if you make one or both!
I hope you’ve enjoyed our series this year. Day 12 from our first year sharing remains a favorite and is our traditional Christmas morning breakfast!
