Bottle Cap and Cork Ornaments

Here at Green Kid Crafts, we love to find new ways of giving everyday items a new life in ways that inspire our children to create and encourages them to be mindful of the environment. This simple Christmas ornament craft can be made with things you already have at home. Been enjoying some Holiday Spirits? Don’t throw those bottle caps and corks away just yet! For this craft, I scavenged some wired ribbon from my box of old hand-me-down decorations and, with a little bit of hot glue and imagination, created a one of a kind personalized ornament that will look beautiful on your tree or as a tag on a gift. These DIY Christmas Ornaments will be heirloom treasures for years to come.

Instructions for making a DIY Christmas Ornament

Cut an 8-10 inch length of ribbon. Any kind will do, fabric or otherwise.  Fold it in half and secure it in two spots with hot glue leaving a loop at the top. If you’ve been enjoying a lovely grog or bottled cider, use the cap to trace a circle on paper that will fit on the inner surface. If you’ve got a spare cork, use a kitchen knife to cut it into slices. Personalize your cork or cap, hot glue them to the ribbon and attach your ornament hook. What a great way to create something special for friends, family, or teachers with upcycled items from around the house.
