DIY Reindeer Ornament

So I saw this pin and I had been seeing similar items in crafty stores around Columbia. They are super cute and I had been saving wine corks for the right project so I wanted to go ahead and make these with my own twist. These make cute decorations and could make awesome DIY gifts.
First for supplies you will need:
-Wine corks (2.5 per reindeer)
-Googly Eyes
-Pom Poms
-Pipe Cleaners
-A Sheet of Brown Foam
-Jingle Bells
-Hot Glue Gun

Start by cutting two corks in half. I used a serrated bread knife, it worked fairly well. Please be careful when using a knife on the corks because they tend to rol

Next cut two halves in half again.

These are the pieces you need to move forward. Four quarters, one half and one whole cork.

Attach the quarter corks to the whole cork to form the legs and the body. Some of my corks were cut on an angle and I used that to my advantage to make space between the legs.

Glue the half cork on to form the head.

Next cut two small rectangles of the brown foam and shape the ears. Then glue the ears to the back of the reindeer's head.

Next cut one three inch section and two one inch sections of pipe cleaner. Fold the three inch piece in the middle, then twist the one each piece on each end of the V. Last glue the center of the V between the ears on the back of the head.

Glue on some googly eyes, a pom pom for a nose and a pom pom for the tail.

Cut a three inch piece of ribbon and glue it around the Reindeer's neck. Then trim the ends of the ribbon.

Glue a jingle bell to the criss-cross of the ribbon.

Cut a four inch piece of ribbon, glue the ends together forming a circle. Then glue the circle to the reindeer's back to form a string to hang the reindeer from.

Viola! You have your own little Rudolph!

Hang him on your tree or give him to a friend!
