What you need:

  • Corks
  • Ribbon
  • Baubles or bells
  • Crafting wire
  • Pliers

Steps:                       

  1. Poke a hole all the way through. This can be quite tough so use your muscles. Turn cork and poke through the hole to the other side to ensure a nice clean passage.                
  2. Thread the gold wire through the hole, make a loop and attach a bauble - you can use any bauble as long as its not too heavy. Thread both ends of the wire back into the cork to secure it.
  3. Grab your pre-made bow (or make one using a ribbon of your choice), using a wire tie, secure the ribbon above the bauble below the cork. Snip away excess wire tie.
  4. Using the remaining wire at the top of the cork, create a loop and hang from your tree.
