  • Begin by cutting your wine cork into fourths. Using a serrated knife will make this job easier. Carefully saw the cork until you have 4 pieces. Repeat the process until you cut up four corks or have about 13 discs.

  • You can now prepare to assemble your discs into the snowflake shape. Begin by creating a daisy shape. Place one disc in the center and build 6 discs around it. Just add glue to where the discs meet and press together until dry and secure. Next, you want to build off of the daisy shape. Glue another disc to the disc you just adhered. You will notice the snowflake shape now taking place. Continue to press the discs together until secure.

  • Add a little white paint to the cork discs, skipping every other disc so the snowflake has a white and natural color to it. It also lends itself to a distressed look. To finish up, all you need to do is add your ribbon for hanging. Simply cut a length of ribbon and glue it to the back of the ornament. Your wine cork snowflake ornament is now ready to be displayed!
