Build a Little Korkenschlange (Cork Snake)
Here’s a fun project that solves the age old problem of what to do with the corks from all of those fabulous bottles of wine. We came across this adorable craft project on the cool little blog Domestic Candy. While the blog is written in German, luckily one of our very own was fluent enough to translate. No matter what language though, this simple little craft project is pretty darn adorable, super easy to make, and will lend a new friend and a lot of fun on a rainy spring afternoon.
5-10 Corks depending on your desired size of snake
Red string or yarn
White school glue
Slice the corks into equal sized pieces then make a hole in the center of each one. For the head, shave one cork down on one end and add a slice on the end as a mouth. Color eyes with the black marker. Tie a knot on one end of the string or yarn and thread the cork pieces through. (You can also dab a bit of glue at the hole of each piece which will secure the thread to the cork.) Thread the head on and tie another knot in the mouth, leaving enough string sticking out for the tongue.
