Cork People

Use champagne corks to create an entire cork family! Use friendship thread for hair and body part accessories to personalize each cork's look!



Step 1. Gather your supplies.

Step 2.

Paint the corks whatever base skin color you would like. We chose to use the peach color from the acrylic paint pack.

Step 3.

For our first character, we knew we wanted to use the square glasses from the body part accessories, so we made sure when we glued on the wiggly eyes, they were far enough apart to be in the frames.

Step 4.

Glue on his stylish frames.

Step 5.

Cut off the pegs from the red bow tie and mustache accessories.

Step 6.

Glue on the mustache.

Step 7.

Paint on a blue suit.

Step 8.

Glue on the red bow tie for the finishing touch.

Step 9.

For our next character, we painted him a green shirt and jeans.

Step 10.

Glue the baseball cap to the top of the cork. Our character is wearing his backwards!

Step 11.

Cut the peg from the large oval eyes in the accessory pack.

Step 12.

Glue on the eyes and draw a smiling mouth.

Step 13.

Our last character is going to have long hair. Use whatever color friendship thread you’d like and fold it back and forth, keeping it about 5″ long.

Step 14.

After you feel you have enough folded and looped together, cut the ends.

Step 15.

Glue the friendship thread on top of the cork, trying to keep it as even on both sides as possible.

Step 16.

Bend a 4″ neon pink fuzzy stick into a bow.

Step 17.

Glue the bow to the side of her head.

Step 18.

Cut the peg from the large blue eyes with eyelashes from the accessory pack.

Step 19.

Glue the eyes to her face and add a smiling mouth.

Step 20.

Paint her body white.

Step 21.

Embellish her dress with small acrylic jewels.
