Quick Craft

Happy New Year!

After we drank the champagne, I looked at the cork and had an idea. I'm sure someone has done this before, but I still wanted to post it.
Here is a cute way to recycle your leftover champagne cork.
First I put a bamboo skewer into the bottom to make it easier to paint.

Then I painted three coats of white all over the cork.
I painted 4 coats of red on the top, letting each coat dry completely before I added the next.

The dots were next to go on.
And lastly, I added a clear coat over the whole thing.

My daughter has been eyeing this since I started so I will probably let her use it with her dolls. This would also make a cute ornament for your tree next year.
