One day a friend of a friend was getting rid of OODLES of champagne corks. Like, a garbage bag full of them. The crafty hoarder in me took charge & I started stuffing handfuls of them into my backpack, like a crazy cork-obsessed lady. I didn't stop to think, "Why does this friend of my friend have so many champagne corks anyway? Should I set up an intervention?" No. I was trying to find extra pockets to cram the corks into. In reality, I probably needed the intervention. I had no idea what I was going to do with the corks. None. Until one day I looked at a cork & thought, "I can totally make this into a gnome!" And that's how this project came to be.
You can use a wine cork instead, but the measurements listed in this project may have to be adjusted.
