Horse Ornaments

By ErrantDreams
One of my partners-in-crime (err, I meant business partners) got the crafting bug after looking at some of the stuff I was doing and decided to make ornaments. What he came up with was so cute that, as a friend of mine said, "that's so adorable I may die." He's making a bunch more, but for the moment we have the first set of four up for sale at etsy [SOLD].

Yes, the corks are from actual bottles of French and German wine---said business partner has lived and traveled all over the world!

:D Our partner might be a retired military guy in his 40s---not exactly someone you'd expect to make wine cork horses---but he's very crafty. ;)

Lol! You'd be surprised some of the things them boys think about while running drills, or screaming in faces. My husband was in the navy.

I have one of these cork horses. Mine has the leg corks cut in half to shape the legs. I used to collect corks with the idea of doing some myself, but never got around to it, eventually just composed the corks. You two are very enterprising!

Very cool. :) And thank you... I just have soooo much fun with this stuff! There's nothing quite like sitting down with a pile of beads and wire and findings and thinking of something to make out of it all. :sun:

:dance: Someday I'll have to write a journal entry about how we met our dear friend & business partner, the guy who made these. Maybe later this week. It's kind of an odd story, and I feel very lucky that we met him & his family.
