Yesterday I posted about ornaments that kids can make using popsicle sticks – now here’s a little something for crafty grown-ups! Save up the corks from your bottles of wine and make an adorable Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer:

To make Rudolph, you just need two and a half corks, fabric scraps, jute, a bead, an eye screw, and a ribbon. Or, collect two corks and some jute to make a sweet little Christmas tree:
